  • Day 12 Cycle to Beng Mealea Temple

    The cycling adventure today will take you far away from the typical tourist destinations around Siem Reap. You will ride on little-used roads through small villages and beautiful countryside to reach the hidden temple of Beng Mealea. This moss-covered, shady temple is an oasis away from the hundreds of people who visit the main Angkor temples. According to Maurice Glaize's 1944 book, The Angkor Guide, "a trip to Beng Mealea can be combined with a hunting party" since the region is rich in both small and large game. Wild animals like tigers, panthers, elephants, herds of oxen, and wild buffalo inhabit the forest.' While you may not have a hunting party, you will still experience a great adventure. After exploring this vast temple complex, you will transfer back to Siem Reap for a well-deserved rest before your farewell dinner.

    Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner
    Cycling: Distance - Approx. 40 – 60 km; Grade – Easy
