About this activity
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Phnom Udong, Udong Cambodia

Oudong was capital of the Khmer Empire from 17th Century until 1866 when it was moved to Phnom Penh. Several temples and religious structure dot the ridgeline and stupas containing the remains of several great Khmer Kings such as King Monivong and King Ang Duong can be found here. These hills were also the site of some of the Khmer Rouge’s most prolonged resistance against the encroaching Vietnamese army in 1979. The summit of Phnom Oudong offers spectacular views of the surrounding countryside and is a favorite picnic spot for residents from Phnom Penh. We stroll leisurely through these buildings of times past by before we head out to see one of the monks.

The highlight of this half day (mornings only) is to receive a personal blessing by the monks in which they will perform an traditional ceremony by sprinkling water and flowers while chanting for about 5 to 10 minutes. It is believed that this traditional Khmer blessing ceremony cleanses bad spirits from the past and brings good luck for the coming year. You will feel surprisingly renewed and relaxed after this memorable experience. After the blessing ceremony you will receive a small string for their wrist from the monks.

To let the whole experience soak in, we offer a Khmer set lunch at a local restaurant before we travel back to Phnom Penh. Arrival at your booked hotel at around 13:30 hrs.

Duration: 5 hours
