Half Day Tour To Oudong

General information

Phnom Penh, Cambodia

Program details

Phnom Oudong, the ancient capital of Cambodia is located within 40km northwest of Phnom Penh. The original name is Oudong Meanchey Oudong which means noble or excellent and Meanchey means victory. It is now the official resting place of the most sacred of Buddha's bones possessed by Cambodia. Upon their arrival, guests will climb up for 10-20 minutes from the base of the mountain to the top where they will be able to witness a wonderful view of the surrounding countryside such as, rice fields and floodplains. The bone has had a new temple built top the mountain and is now the tallest one of three temples that exists there. For something completely different, guests should take a side trip to Prasat Nokor Vimean Sour, a concrete unduly ornate, semi-replica of Angkor Wat built in 1998.
