This Adventure In Cambodia Will Test Your Fitness Levels
South-east Asia is special. This we know; but for a very long time, Thailand, Indonesia and Vietnam have been the most popular destinations. Head to Cambodia for your next mission.
It’s a place of incredible and diverse natural beauty, fantastic food, and a unique culture. Of course, it’s best explored by pushing the adrenaline levels with some serious outdoor adventure. The best part of Intrepid Travel’s 9 day tour is that it encompasses a wide range of activities that will test your fitness levels.
Kayak the Mekong river to get up close to the mysterious Irrawaddy dolphins and see amazing flooded forests. The added bonus: paddling will strengthen your back, arms, shoulders and chest. You’ll stop at different spots throughout the day to explore the areas that lie along the route you’re kayaking, one of which is a stunning waterfall reached by walking through the tropical jungle.
If that’s not enough, round it off by working your legs when you saddle up your mountain bike (or lace up the trail shoes) and bike or hike the ancient temple ruins of the incredible Angkor complex.
Taking a bike through the Angkorian ruins means you can avoid the crowds and get a unique perspective on this wondrous site. Along the way you’ll pass local villages. Channel your inner Indiana Jones and climb the 633 steps to the top of temple ruin at Phnom Bok. From here you’ll see spectacular views of the countryside below before exploring the inside of the temples.
Trying to pack in as much adventure as possible? Schedule in a zip-lining and canopy walk adventure at Angkor. Drinking in the picturesque views is the best way to end off your trip.
