Beng Mealea - Must See Place in Siem Reap, Cambodia

Beng Mealea - Must See Place in Siem Reap, Cambodia

In its chaotic state, BENG MEALEA is the most "explorable" temple in Siem Reap, Cambodia - genuinely uncleared, perfect for those adventure-seeking trekkers. 

Since Beng Mealea is located about 40km away or a good 1.5 hour drive, only a few people go here, which is what makes it even more special. Surrounded by tall trees, Beng Mealea is also known as the "Jungle Temple," a shady and cooler place to explore. Also, because of fewer visitors, you get to take pictures at all angles with no photo-bombers in the background :)

FYI: Beng Mealea entrace fee is USD 5 per person.

Beng Mealea is rich in abandoned stones

Game on! Act like Tomb Raider and get ready as you go up and down these rocks

A rewarding view once you reach the top of the Beng Mealea Ruins

Falling or tripping is never an option so better take extra precaution!!!
