There is also the opportunity to visit a Angkor-era quarry from which the stone was cut for these massive monuments.
Next, we will head to the remote city of Angkor Koh Ker. We climb to the summit of Prasat Thom, a stepped pyramid with seven levels, which is more reminiscent of the architecture of the Maya, as to the Khmer. From the top you have a beautiful view of the surrounding forest. Nearby is Prasat Krahom, also known as the Red Temple. This name is due to the Banteay Srei pink stone from which it was built. There are many other temples in the area, including the five towers of Prasat Ling, each encircled by a huge Linga (symbol of fertility).
