An interesting afternoon far from PP and its traffic

We decided to go to Tonle Bati and Phnom Chisor after exhausting what PP had to offer. While we did not enjoy the visit of the Tonle Bati temple, we really thought that Phnom... read more

I can't remember how many steps there are to get to the top but it's lots. However it's well worth the effort as not only are the views spectacular, but the ancient ruins at the top are fascinating.

We decided to go to Tonle Bati and Phnom Chisor after exhausting what PP had to offer. While we did not enjoy the visit of the Tonle Bati temple, we really thought that Phnom Chisor was worth the two-hour car ride. There are two sets of stairs to get to the temple - the old renovated one and the modern... More

Chiso mountain is in Takeo province of Cambodia with the real view of mountain temple built the Angkorian King. It is nice and fantastic in this province. The way up to the hill is more than 400 steps. Highly recommend this temple.

We really wanted to go to Angkor Wat, but we just didn't have enough time. However, this temple turned out to be equally intriguing. Originally built in the 11th century as a temple tribute to Hindu gods, the temple transitioned to a Buddhist site later on its history. Today, the site is preserved by a group of monks at the...

Phnom Chisor temple was built in the early 11th century by King Suryavarman some 133 metres up a hill or 412 steps. The view of the surrounding country side only adds to value of this trip. The ruins are in reasonable condition should you arrive early enough provide some great photographic opportunities.

The temple is very nice. Phnom Chiso is located at Takoe Province. It takes time 2 hours by car from Phnom Penh city to reach there, but it's amazing. The view on the top is beautiful. Highly recommend this place to tourists

It's nothing fancy but a very common place for local people to visit with their families and participate in religious festivals. The temples are beautiful and well maintained. The hike up the mountain requires a bit of strength and extra water. It is the most enjoyable if you visit the temple in the morning when its cooler than the afternoon.... More

Went there in a tuk tuk costing us $30 which took us two and a half hour to get there. The journey on the tuk tuk is very interesting bumpy and dusty but I highly recommend it. Our driver has to ask the direction to phnom chisor which can be quite complicated because there weren't any sign to this place.... More
