Description

There are few biking experiences that compare with cycling beneath towering fig trees among a thousand years of Khmer history at Angkor. The ancient Khmer capital of Angkor is today one of the most remarkable and impressive sights in all of Asia. For much of its 600 years, the Angkor empire's regional power was unmatched, and under a number of its 'god-kings' such as Jayavarman the 7th the artistic exploits of the Khmer kingdom were unrivalled.

With our trusted Cambodian cycle guide to show you the way and an experienced temple guide following in a support vehicle, we are able to offer an interesting, exciting and a totally different way to visit Angkor. Although we ride on a wide range of trails, many of which are off-road, this tour is suitable for anyone with basic fitness. The roads are tarmac or broken tarmac and there are no technical mountain bike sections.

We ride as a group, with experienced cycle guides setting an even pace and stop often to visit points of interest and sample some of the local food. Our support vehicle follows close behind with plenty of refreshments

This trip has a specific Temple Guide who is extremely knowledgeable on the temple complex and can also explain the local area, history, customs and way-of-life each time we stop. For groups of less than four people you have a choice of a cycling guide or a temple guide in the support vehicle.

After our visit here we'll carry on through the jungle and toward the eastern gate of Angkor Thom, ancient capital of the Khmer Empire. In the near center of this massive enclosure, we'll find the enigmatic temple of Bayon. This temple is known for its many smiling faces. As the sun reaches its zenith now, we'll take a short rest and lunch, before visiting the grandest temple of them all Angkor Wat. Depending upon the time, we can choose to return to Siem Reap after our visit to Angkor Wat for a brief rest before returning to the Angkor complex.

Day 3: Siem Reap 57 km

Leaving Siem Reap by bike we strike out for the countryside. Our initial destination this morning is the village of Prah Dak, which lies not far from the temple complex. Once we pass through this quaint little village, we'll cycle down a narrow tarmac lane to Banteay Samre. Now we start getting deeper into the Cambodian countryside and pass many local villages and schools and people going about their day to day business. Ahead of us, the great sandstone ridge of Phnom Kulen rises up from the countryside. At the base of this mountain, we will stop for lunch and take a short 3km trek to Kbal Spean. Here we can see ancient riverbed carvings of Hindu gods in the "River of 1,000 Lingas." Once we finish here, we'll load up our bikes and transfer to Banteay Srei the gem of the Angkor area known for its exquisite bas relief carvings. Afterward, transfer to your back to Siem Reap.

Day 4: Siem Reap 45 km

After breakfast we leave the crowds behind and head towards the floating village and submerged forest of Kampong Phluk. The floating forest makes this tranquil place unique and is a treat for visitors. We enjoy a boat tour around the village, between trees breaking through the water surface and soak in the culture of living life on the water. We'll eat lunch at a local house before we get back on solid ground. As the day becomes warmer, we'll transfer to the village of Roulous, home to some of the earliest permanent structures built by the Khmers. We explore the three main temples here - Lolei, Preah Ko and Bakong. Afterward we'll transfer back to Siem Reap.
