Preah Vihear is a Khmer temple situated atop a 525-meter cliff in the Dangrek Mountains in Cambodia close to the Thailand border, but most notably in Cambodian territory. As a key edifice of the empire’s spiritual life, it was supported and modified by successive kings and so bears elements of several architectural styles. Affording a view of many kilometers across a plain, it has the most spectacular setting of all the temples built during the six-century-long Khmer Empire. Long being the subject of intense ownership disputes between the two neighboring countries, Cambodia was officially awarded control of Preah Vihear in 1962 by the International Court of Justice and it is now listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Lunch will be provided at a local restaurant and after lunch, you will continue to ride along the main road to Koh Ker for 45km, and the remainder of the road you will be transferred by support van. On arrival, visit Koh Ker temples. It was briefly the capital of the Khmer empire between 928 and 944 under king Jayavarman IV and his son Hasavarman II. A vast number of temples were built under his reign until his successor returned to the Angkor area about twenty years later. The Koh Ker site is dominated by Prasat Thom, a 30-meter-tall temple mountain raising high above the plain and the surrounding forest. Currently, access to the top is closed. Koh Ker is very attractive to anyone who would like to experience lonely temples partially overgrown by the forest and inhabited only by birds, calling to each other from the trees above.
