Beyond the Crowds of Angkor, Cambodia

Condé Nast Traveler Logo By Lester V. Ledesma of Condé Nast Traveler | Slide 1 of 10: Lying just 12 miles east of Angkor Wat, and a short three miles from Banteay Samré (another popular ancient landmark), the ruins of Phnom Bok are practically deserted. This 10th-century temple complex is hidden from tour groups by its obscure hilltop location, and can only be reached through a steep, 720-feet hike up a clearly-marked jungle trail. The pathway starts at the base of the hill, near a modern Buddhist shrine that bears the same name.
