Inside Angkor Archaeological Park, the Flight of the Gibbon facility features 8 single and 2 double zip line forays over the jungle canopy together with 4 sky bridges, a tree house, Gibbon Station and a 15 metre (50 feet) Rappel, and is a great way to complement a trip to the famous monuments with some fun activity.  

A novel additional activity-based way to enjoy your treetop adventures is to combine the experience with a mountain bike tour of the great monuments in the park.

Operating out of Siem Reap’s Jayavaraman Airfield, Aero Cambodia offer breathtaking aerial tours aboard a microlight aircraft over various groups of Angkor’s famous temples and Tonle Sap Lake, a thrilling way to observe the surviving parts of the ancient city and get a feel for the enormity of its layout.  

The trips are customisable to your monument preferences, and if you really want to push the boat out you can extend the flight duration to include more. Conventional aircraft and helicopter trips over the monuments are also available.

If you’re visiting Cambodia’s island cluster in the Gulf of Thailand, the island of Koh Rong is home to the High Point Rope Adventure Park, a twenty stage aerial course featuring zip lines, suspension bridges and walking wires, and an excellent place to enjoy some fun if you’ve still got spare energy from lazing on the beach.

With an absence of rushing torrents, white water rafting is not a feature of Cambodian activities, but there are plenty of places to enjoy waterborne travel by Kayak such as on the Mekong at Kratie, Tonle Sap Lake or in the Cardamom Mountains. Another good kayaking experience is taking a sea Kayak around the islands off Sihanoukville.  

Likewise, in such a generally flat country, rock climbing is limited to routes in the area around Kampot, such as Sharks Teeth, Cloister Wall and some of its caves, which have both inner and outer climbing routes.

Elephant trekking is a popular way to have an adventure, with interesting treks around the Bayon and Angkor Thom or in the northeastern area of Mondulkiri. We only use projects that place animal welfare as a top priority, but if you decide on a ‘spur of the moment’ ride, please be aware that elephants are sadly often mistreated by some trekking companies.
