Phnom Chisor Cycling

Itinerary

The tour guide and crew will pick you up from hotel in Phnom Penh and then you will be transferred out of the city to the ride spot, start to cycle from one of the villages in the countryside to Phnom Chisor and we will witness local daily activities. After 18km riding we will reach to Phnom Chisor and take some time to catch your breath before you climb the 461 steps to the top of the hill for a magnificent view. The temple there was built in the 11th century by King Suryavarman I. Its construction is made of laterite and bricks and is home to some carved sandstone lintels. Admire the views before you return to the foot of the mountain to enjoy the picnic lunch, continue to cycle to other small villages to visit to Tonle Bati is a small lake that is a popular place for locals to spend their weekends. Small wooden platforms and huts dot the lake and function as shelter where Cambodian families prepare a picnic. However, during the weekdays the place is deserted and you will most likely have the area to yourself. The most noticeable feature is the 12th century temple named Ta Prohm. This beautifully conserved temple was built by King Jayavarman VII. Visit the temple upon arrival and walk through its hallways. Flowers and little shrines can be found around every corner. Partake in a blessing from a monk elder and donate some small money to light an incense stick. Return to Phnom Penh by support van
