The trail leads you through the local agricultural lands replete with rice paddies, vegetable gardens, and plantations. The terrain is relatively flat as you make your way to the stunning highpoint of the journey, the Kuang Si Waterfalls. This three-tiered cascading beauty is sure to impress and looks great on camera. Have a picnic among the hardwood trees around the turquoise pooling water, and go for a swim if you’d like before exiting the way you came.

Visit highlights like the Bayon Temple, the Elephant Terrace, the Royal Palace, and Angkor Wat, the iconic structure associated with Cambodia.
