    It's ok but very crouded
    First I am going to say the climb down is ALOT you have to walk down a steep hill rocks and mud before you get to the top of the waterfall then you go through some trees/mud/rocks which again is steep to get theop the STAIRS! There is a huge staircase really steep all the way down. The views once you are down is amazing we didn't go in the water as it looks very brown and i had an ear infection already. It gets really busy around lunchtime.

    Phnom Kulen waterfall
    Phnom Kulen Waterfall is one of the tourist attraction and it is situated on the top of the mountain Phnom Kulen. The water falls scenary is good and water is coming in force. We took bath in the main fall and enjoyed. In the down, water is running at a lower speed and senior and children can enjoy.

    Hi You so have to do this. The Kulen waterfall is so much Fun🤩. There are donut floaties. It was a bit cold at first but then you get used to it. There are small little fish that nibble you -r feet, well from what I heard. You can go under the waterfall it’s like a massage. You can also go on the rocks behind the waterfall.

This is a great place to visit if you looking to escape from the heat of Siem Reap for a few hours. The waters are cooling and the water is clear. Only it gets quite crowded during weekend with locals loving this sport to cool off from the heat. Only the stairs are quite a steep climb down if you want to view the main waterfall.

What a nice half day visit to this waterfall. It is beautiful and certainly a site to see. I got some fantastic photos here. It's not incredibly deep I'm 5"4 and I could stand in the water.

Dont take any belongings. We had a lovely guide who held our stuff whilst we went in but it's best to just try and not bring it.

There is a lot of walking, especially steep walking so wear comfortable shoes and bring your own drink.

You will get super wet, goes without saying.

Half-day trip to the Phnom Kulen mountain with Borey (from Borey Cambodia Tours) was a great escape from Siem Reap. I had a really good time, especially with no tourists around. Borey was knowledgeable about both the mountain and Cambodia’s history. He was friendly and spoke good English. He helped with picture taking and was accommodating all my requests. I highly recommend him.

Sorphea the guide was amazing. We booked late in the evening and managed to get a private tour last minute. Sorphea knew little hidden spots along the route and as a photographer I really appreciated it. He took us on a food and culture tour before we reached the waterfall. Highly recommended.

A 65km trip to see what is a very nice but average waterfall is not worth your valuable time. It is a nice waterfall but was full of tourists. The falls and river have Hindu meaning so if this is important then I fully understand but a sub par experience for us. Best part was fish nibbling your feet but you can do that for a $1 in Pub Street

A great scenic view of the waterfall but unfortunately the timing of our visit to this place happens to be during the dry season, otherwise I’m sure the scene at the waterfall would be much better.

We witness a lot of local families spending the time picnic and dipping themselves in the cool refreshing waterfall.

I joined the Kulen Mountain Waterfall tour with tour guid Sopheap en driver La. I really loved seeing the beautiful mountain sights, the 1000 linga river and the Reclining Buddha. The big highlight for me was swimming at the incredibly scenic waterfall. I would really recommend this tour. Thank you mr Sopheap!
