    All about the Trail to Phnom Chisor Temple.

    Biking throughout beautiful countryside, explore pretty villages and discover a lot of thing along the way where you’ll experience with a real life of local people in countryside and delicious Khmer local food. We will spend about 20% of the time on the main roads for the 48 km journey. Along the way, the rest of the time on a small village, we stopped at a small stall where a lady sold fried crickets and fresh cane juice; delicious and refreshing. Furthermore, cycle to visit Ta Promh Temple, which is the temple that is reminiscent of Angkor Wat. Ta Promh temple, adapted from Bayon style, was built during the late 12th and early 13thcenturies, during the reign of King Jayavarman VII (AD 1181-1220) as a place of worship for Brahmans and Buddhists. After visited the temple and delicious local lunch in the picnic huts of Tonle Bati Tourism Site, we cycle about 16 km more to Phnom Chiso and climb about 400 stairs to visit Phnom Chiso temple and explore beautiful views of Takeo countryside from the hilltop. Phnom Chiso temple was built in the early 11th century by King Suryawarman I (AD 1002- 1050) who practiced Brahmanism.
