Camped and hiked here for two nights, had the best experience. It can rain in the monsoon, so be sure to carry raincoats. We got drenched in the rain, but enjoyed the experience. Not a lot of wild animals around, do overall it's a safe hike. You will be able to see a lot of old temples and carvings of Hindu dieties on rocks asking the hikes. Be sure to camp at a place that provides a guide. They shall arrange all the food as well (non vegetarian).
Situated some 60km from Siam Reap, about an hour plus drive, this place is perfect spot for a day trip. Very nice waterfalls and you have a chance to take a glance of the holy River where the ancient Kings took their bath there. It is a place populated with the locals. Engage a local guide and hire a car to get there.
