SIEM REAP, CAMBODIA, September 21, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Embark on a magical journey to the sacred Phnom Kulen Mountain, a magnificent destination just a quick jaunt away from the heart of Siem Reap.

Discover what lies beyond the temples of Angkor Wat and head to Cambodia’s most revered mountain. Phnom Kulen encompasses a true jungle adventure and features some wonderful spots to visit including cascading waterfalls, remote temples and one of the largest reclining Buddhas in all of Asia. Located within the national park of the same name, the awe-inspiring scenery is simply breathtaking.

Set deep in the jungle, the sacred waterfalls are the park’s main attraction. Surrounded by abundant vegetation and tropical greenery. Impressive in size, the waterfalls are a prime spot to take a quick dip, enjoy a picnic or laze about local-style in a hammock.

Rich in history and culture, the remote Kbal Spean is an ancient Khmer site in the national park. Off the beaten path, the “River of a Thousand Lingas” is home to intricately carved fertility symbols in the riverbed. Thousands of years old, the carvings are overseen by Hindu deities carved into the rocks of the landscape. Cambodian folklore tells that the river gives blessings to couples who are trying to conceive.

An enormous reclining Buddha also calls the national park home. One of the largest of its kind in Cambodia, it is majestic at eight meters long. The sandstone Buddha is favored among locals, who come to pray and offer up colorful flowers, fruit and incense to the statue.

Approximately two hours’ drive from Park Hyatt, a luxury 5-star resort in Siem Reap, Phnom Kulen Mountain and national park make for an exceptional day trip destination. Boasting a prime location in the heart of town, Park Hyatt Siem Reap is a luxurious hideaway and the perfect starting point for any Siem Reap adventure. “It’s always a pleasure when guests arrange their tours with us, especially for attractions that are not usually frequented by other tourists,” says Dip Sang, Chief Concierge at Park Hyatt Siem Reap. “We are happy when guests are genuinely interested to learn more about our people’s culture and what our country has else to offer”.
