Phumi Siem Reab Travel Guide: 484 reviews and 1,063 photos
A daytrip out of Siem Reap (and yes it really does take that long) gets you to a "lost temple", i.e . one that is off the beaten path and has not been cleared of the jungle.
Beng Mealea is a scaled down, unsantized version of Angkor Wat.
Well worth the visit.
About 1-1/2 hour drive from Siem Reap, and a two km uphill hike gets you to this pretty little site.
BEWARE: It is not a trivial jaunt to get here. Lots of hard work, slippery conditions and an area that has not been cleared of land mines.
Speaking of landmines. A trip to one man's work on mine clearing and mine awareness.
- Pros:Amazing place to visit
- Cons:High temperatures, malarial zone and it takes some effort to see the places
- In a nutshell:Well worth the effort to get out of town and see places other than Ankgor Wat.
