We visited the Kulen national park in June as part of our 4 day Angkor tour plan. This is a welcome break after couple of days of temple hopping and allows a different experience. The drive to Kulen national park is pleasant and take an hour plus from city center. We visited the Buddha temple and also the river of thousand lingas. We enjoyed the two waterfalls. The second and bigger water falls has stalls offering swim wear and more usefully; lockers and change rooms (well steel boxes for lockers and thatched huts as change rooms). This allowed us to enjoy getting into the waterfall and enjoy ourselves. There are also nature walks and many more sights so one can convert this into a full day tour as well.

I and my mum visited here Kulen Mountain on 11 June 2019, and we have to come with tour guide that we could know the history of this area. We visited the big sleeping Buddha on top, but we saw over there they keep the Hindo statues and Buddha stutues together. We went back to see the thousand lingas in the river bed, and the waterfall. Our guide Long told us all the history. Highly recommend visiting in this month because the waterfall is so beautiful!

The Koulen Waterfall actually has two waterfalls one above the other. The upper waterfall is an easy walk from the parking while the lower one requires you to climb down a steep flight of stairs. The upper waterfall is relatively flat and shallow and has a lower vertical drop while the lower one has a bigger vertical drop, a deeper pool and is more rocky and spectacular. Nearby is a riverbed carved with a thousand lingas and other religious motifs.

As with most tourist attractions, the way from the parking to the waterfall is line with restaurants and souvenir shops.

It is a great outing and the waterfall is a great way to cool down even in the hot Cambodian weather. Make sure to bring your bathing suit and sunscreen.

A beautiful group tour to the waterfall. National park has many food stalls selling everything and ends in a stairs leading to the waterfall. Such a beautiful view and visit. A 1 hour time for swimming is fair enough. You can rent a safe box for 1 dollar. Care from the rocks.

Visited July 2015. Loved coming here before visiting the waterfall! The reclining Buddha is spectacular as well as the surrounding sights and sounds.

The Koulen (Kulen) National park is spectacular. You can enjoy the natural surroundings and the gorgeous waterfall where locals and tourists can have a swim and cool off. We went on a public holiday, so it was extremely busy, but it was nice to observe local Cambodian families enjoying the day off. The walk up to the temple that houses the Reclining Buddha is steep but beautiful. We had a guide, so we were able to see the best parts of the park.

This is a great place to be. Start your trip as early in the morning as possible since the drive from Siem Reap is 1-1.5h.
Downside 20! USD admission fee. But it is cheaper with a multi day Angkor pass.

There is an interesting temple to visit on top of a mountain plus the river. On the upper part of the river you can swim, rent a cot at ca. 5-6 USD to sit, relax sleep and picnic. Plenty food vendors and souvenirs around. Very touristic but also frequently visited by the locals.
Below that river you will find one of the most impressive waterfalls in Cambodia. You can also swim there... Great, even inspite of all the tourists.

See Kulen National Park as this listing is a duplication of that one as the park is referred to as either Kulen or Koulen :)

Walk down to see the waterfall at its best! The view is lovely! Not all tour guides would suggest this or even bring it up but just give it a walk and you'll see the beautiful waterfall. The park itself is pretty average unless you're a very cultural person!

I am an expat living in Siem Reap for a few years now! Have been to this beautiful location a few times now but have never written a review on this national park! The dirt bike ride to the top is awesome, waterfall is stunning, scenery amazing! Please the Cambodian government keep this place in its national state, and also employ a few more locals in the area, spend a few dollars of the takings, and keep the garbage to a minimum, its an awesome place!!. I will return many times!
