"Sunset" Sunset at Bakheng Hill Tip by pmarshuk

Sunset at Bakheng Hill, Angkor Wat: 41 reviews and 76 photos


A favourite gathering place to watch sunset is the top of Phnom Bakheng. To get there you can either scramble up a steep slope or take a ride on the back of an elephant at a cost of about USD15. After doing it once I'll be tempted to take the elephant next time. It is very steep and many people(including me) have to stop for a break on the way up.
Looking down from the opposite side to the sunset you get wonderful views of Angkor Wat surrounded by the jungle.
