Enjoy this adventure that will take you off-the-beaten-track to both the remote Beng Mealea Temple ("Jungle Temple") as well as the village of Kompong Khleang. Beng Mealea is a less-visited, but nonetheless historically important temple, and represents a fascinating example of the Suryavarman architecture, dating back to the 12th century.
Once you are picked up from your accommodation in Siem Reap in an AC Minivan/car early in the morning you will head off to Beng Mealea (around 70 kms away). Along the way you will be able to admire the rural Cambodia. Then you will arrive at the recently discovered temple, built by Suryavarman II in the 12th century and being an example of a fusion of Buddhist and Hindu architecture. The complex is nestled inside a jungle forest and spreads over 1 square kilometer. Unlike Angkor Wat and other temples, this one has been left as it was discovered - with nature working its way through the temple, reclaiming it block by block. There are many secret passages, hidden archways, fallen masonry, perching on top of broken galleries and accessing through gaps in the ruins. Your guide will prove himself/herself indispensable by pointing out things that would normally go unnoticed.
After you have explored the complex you will then be taken to see the nearby village of Kompong Khleang and your guide will show you where the sandstone was cut from the mountain and explain how the blocks were transported to the site.
You will then stop for a well-deserved rest and lunch at a Khmer restaurant.
Afterwards, you will be transported in an AC minivan/car back to Siem Reap.
