We’ll dive deep into the jungles on bikes and scooters with the mud splashing on our way to forgotten temples and Buddha’s face peeking out from overgrown vines, trees, roots and bushes. With monkeys howling hello along the way and waterfall swimming to wash off the dirt, we’ll reach our jungle-camp amongst the forgotten temples filled and ancient ghosts of a lost civilization.
Built over 35 years with the aid of over 6,000 elephants and 300,000 laborers, Angkor Wat is the most spectacular temple structure in the world, a symbol dear to Cambodia and a pilgrimage site for Buddhists all over the globe! Larger than the Vatican, older than the Taj Mahal, more stones used to construct than the Pyramids of Giza, and the backdrop for the most stunning sunset, moonrise and sunrise you’ll ever see!
We’ve picked out a special spot for Halloween night next to an unknown temple in the dense jungle where a ghost story is sure to unfold!
