After visiting the floating village, you will be taken back to your accommodation where you will have time to relax and freshen up.
At 6:40pm we will take you to a traditional Apsara dance show that includes a delicious buffet meal. The remainder of your evening is free for you to explore the city of Siem Reap.
Day 2 – Approximately a 27km Angkor trek
After your breakfast at the hotel is complete you will be transferred to the base of Kulen Mountain to begin your 27km trek. Kulen mountain is a hidden retreat for many Cambodians on weekends but during the week it is virtually deserted. You will be escorted to the waterfall near the peak of Phnom Kulen, The Terrace of Sdach Kum Ling and to some of the pagodas close by. There will be plenty of time to stop and admire the wildlife and capture some stunning pictures. When the trek is complete you will be driven back to your hotel. The evening is free for you to enjoy in Siem Reap. Traditional Khmer massages can be arranged to help sooth your muscles after the climb.
