Day 01 Depart Siem Reap for Koh Ker Temples
Day 02 Return to Siem Reap with a visit at Beung Mealea

Today we will explore Koh Ker Temples located in Srayong Cheung village of Preah Vihear Province and 130km away from the north of Siem Reap and it will take  about 02-hour drive to get there. The Koh Ker complex is on the Chhork Koki highland and built by King Jayavaraman IV (AD 928-942). The Koh Ker temple (Prasat  Thom) is 35m high with a seven-stepped stupa and faces west toward Angkor city. This temple was built to worship Treypuvanesvara, the god of happiness. All  together 96 temples have been found in the Koh Ker Complex, but many of them are no longer standing and some are buried in the ground. On arrival at Koh Ker  complex, we will begin our visit to Prasat Krahom (Red Temple), the second largest structure where we will see the stone archways and galleries, the impressive  stone carvings, a naga-flanked causeway and a series of sanctuaries, libraries and gates. Continue our exploration to the principal monument, Prasat Thom, a 55m  wide and 35m high sandstone-faced pyramid. At the top of the temple, there are large statues of garudas supporting Shiva Lingam Treypuvanesvara. Lunch will be  served at a local restaurant. In the afternoon, we will continue our observation in this site such as Damrei Sar temple covered with trees, Chen temple (a tree-peak t  temple made of laterite and sandstone), 20m square-sized Preng Well surrounded by stone and more. We will be transferred to our guesthouse. Dinner at a local  restaurant. Overnight near Koh Ker Complex.(L, D)

After breakfast at a local restaurant, we will do more sightseeing in the Koh Ker complex before our return to Siem Reap. On the way back, we will make a stop at  Beung Mealea lies at the foot of Phnom Kulen’s eastern extreme. It is one of the most mysterious temples at Angkor and is enclosed by a massive moat measuring  1.2km by 900m. The temple used to be utterly consumed by jungle, but it is a special place and worth taking the time to explore it thoroughly. Optional visit to Harmony  Farm, a small orphanage run by local. Lunch will be served at a local restaurant. In the afternoon, we will return to Siem Reap and be transferred to our hotel. Enjoy  our stay in Siem Reap.(B, L)
