Now you can journey with experienced tour guides to these remarkable ancient temples.

Here you can explore the great plaza adjoining the 300 meter-long Elephant terrace, and the ruins of the Royal Palace and the pyramid temple of Phiminakas. At the rear of the plaza are 12 towers the Prasats Sour Prat. Tightrope walkers used to perform across what is now the road to the Victory Gate. Following lunch you will be taken to visit the fascinating temple of TaPromh. This huge temple complex looks much the same as when it was first rediscovered. Here you will see high lichen covered walls distorted by the movement of the earth beneath. The last call of the day will be back at Angkor Wat.
