There are not that many waterfalls near Siem Reap, sadly. The area is very flat, so water doesn’t really have that far to fall on its way towards the massive Tonle Sap Lake. However, the mountains of the Phnom Kulen National Park to the north of the city are the source for some of the waterways which wind around the temples and town on the plains.
Only about an hour’s drive from Siem Reap, the waterfalls in the area are well worth a visit. Their beautiful settings and fresh, cool water make them a refreshing change from the stuffy Angkor temples and dusty Siem Reap streets. Check out the Siem Reap waterfalls below for a wonderful daytrip option.
