About
Siem Reap's only nature trails wind through semi-evergreen forest where rare Indochinese silvered langur populations are known to live. Easy to walk, the trails start and end at the same location: Preah Ang Thom village. Local rangers accompany your group and share their knowledge of the forest. You can combine a walk on the trails with other sites in Kulen, such as a visit to the waterfall.

The guide took us to a pagoda about 7km from the falls at 8am . We climbed several hundred steps to the pagoda and then walked on an even path steadily for the next hour or so. It is shaded and easy to traverse . There is not too much wild life but hundreds of dancing butterflies to enjoy. It’s a good way to arrive at Kulen and make your way to the falls passed the 1000 lingum. The falls themselves at this time of the year quite good although obviously not in spate . Unfortunately the place was crowded with locals probably because of Chinese New Year . Don’t let that put you off. There’s lot of trails around the area. .

Nice place to visit if you have some extra time after temples. But it might be crowded. If it is possible ask for Bunny as tourguide, such an amazing story of his life, it is necessary to hear 🙏🏻. Many thanks!

Aside from the expected natural beauty, the highlights of the tour are the Pagoda with the sleeping Buddha, the traditional village, the waterfall and the riverbed carved with a thousand lingas. Along the way you can enjoy the beautiful scenery of the tropical forest.

The waterfall has two levels and the lower level has a bigger drop and is more fun. Don't forget to pack your swimming gear - the water is cool and inviting especially in hot weather.

The place is also historical as this is where the Khmer empire was proclaimed over a thousand years ago. You need to start early as the road to the mountain is one-way only - you can go to the top in only the morning and return in the afternoon. And you need a car, van or bike to go up. Tuk-tuks cannot make the steep grade. The drive is a bit bumpy but offers scenic views. Needless to say, the waterfall is more fun in the rainy season.

This tour is just waste of your time and money. It's short to see the river's carvings and lungs, dirty and crowded waterfall and giant Buddha.
If you decide to see these mountain do it on your own. Otherwise it's just a scam.
Very bed experience.

The Kulen Mountains are about 2 hours drive out of Siem Reap. It's rich in its history and is of religious importance for the faithful, but the waterfall is nice in itself. We again took the tour with Siem Reap Shuttle, and as on other days Mr Sok was our guide. Its a quiet drive up to the mountains. We started at around 8 am, and the van was cool and comfortable. Its just a short walk to the river with the stone shivalingas carved into the bedrock. Its a bit of a climb down to the falls, but very doable. The falls are cool, we went in the dry season, the water looks muddy but is clean, and flowing. Had a nice hour under the falls. The kids loved it, but so did we. Its a fun way to spend the day if you have enough time in Siem Reap to enjoy the temples. Thanks Mr Sok for the pictures. There is a shed to change, and a box to store your stuff for a couple of dollars. You can get vests and a tube to float in for a dollar at the falls.

You are already spoiled for so many options to see in Kulen, but the Kulen Mountain Historical Resort is worthy of a visit.

Beautiful sights - I really enjoyed this park - make sure you get your tour guide to make a diversion here.

The trip takes 90 minutes- half on a bumpy dirt track. We hired a driver and were stunned at how much he charged us (we didn’t ask the price up front- our fault- but still... ) on top of the $20 per person entry fee. The reclining Buddha is not so magical nor are the falls. The falls are marred by a lot of garbage- given all the other things there are to do around Seam Reap this would not be on my short or my long list-

There was water in the falls, but imagine it is nicer in the rainy season. It's a bit of a drive from Siem Reap. But, you can stop at the landmine museum and butterfly nursery on the way back, if you use a private car. Too far and dusty for a Tuk Tuk. There's a tourist restaurant on the way, the food was very good and reasonably priced.

Besides visiting temples up on Kulen Mountain, I get to visit amazing cliff, ancient village, coconuts trees that lived 200 years, spring water, Thousand Lingas, waterfalls, ancient stone carvings...Taste the bananas grown on Kulen Mountain, it is sweet and tasty. However, road construction is ongoing to promote tourism on Kulen Mountain so it can be dusty during the rides. Though it is not so high altitude, the night can be cold if you are staying overnight on the mountain.

It was good to see something other than the temples so this was a great day trip. The only option is to go in the morning and travel back in the afternoon, due to the way to one lane road works. Suggest you take a guide unless you are adventurous. Best time to visit the waterfalls is lunch, when the locals are having their lunch it isn't as crowded. On this trip I would also recommend you stop at the River of a Thousand Lingas, a gorgeous river with sophisticated carvings covering its floor and the Reclining Buddha at rest, both of these are before the water fall. There is a $20 USD entry fee also. Kulen water falls is also in Tomb Raider.
