Definitely worth a visit. It can get busy here but if youre lucky it will be quiet
A shot taken from the opposite side of the road in black and white, late afternoon works well. Good to have some people climbing about for size perspective. Save some sweat, let the others do the climbing. For in-depth info on temple sites in Cambodia, check my travel blog: megaworldasia dot com - S.E.Asia's off the beaten track specialist
Temple is quite high. You can climb on most levels. The color of the bricks unlike the rocks that might of the local temple are built from is quite interesting. The sun brings out the color of the bricks during the day. We went mid day so didn't get to see the sunrise or sunset, but one of the first things I said when I got to the top was to see at least one.
So glad i biked the extra couple kilometers and made it to Prae Roup, was very worth it. Beautiful Temple and it is definately worth it to scale the steep steps to the top (don't worry...i did a little of the thought of going back down the same way I came up!!) But luckily i was watching other people and notices a stairway with a hand rail to go back down. The views are amazing from the top and it ia2 quite a feeling of accomplishment! Great for friends....not sure how safe to have small kids go up...their are no railing at the top, but awesome place for adults. Be careful none-the-less but take plenty of great pictures!
Really awesome temple with a spectacular design. Slightly less crowded than those closer to angkor wat.
Amazing to look at, went at sunset but it didn’t really set on the stones, more over the folds in the background. Lots of people at the top but not overly busy.
We LOVED this temple. We found on our 3 days visiting Angkor, that jungle temples were our favorite, but something about this place won us over. We initially didn't even have this temple on our list, but our driver told us we should make a quick stop, and we were very happy for his recommendation! It has stunning views and very little crowds!
A great temple to visit at sunset but don't follow the crowd and sit on the very top. There is nothing to see except the sun dipping behind some trees, rather sit on the rocks to the right as you come in the first entrance. This way you skip the crowd and have a beautiful temple in the foreground of your sunset shot
Very different from other temples in the area, lots of bricks and unique architectural elements. The surrounding jungle makes for a great contrast for your photos. The lion statues are majestic. At least one of the towers, and parts of the surrounding walls, are leaning precariously adding to the uniqueness.
