  • I wouldn't exactly call this a mountain - more like hills & it's friendly for all walking abilities - no need to be super fit for it. Make sure you have water & a hat and that your shoulders are cover...  more »

  • When I visited Oudong Mountain, I wasn't sure what to expect. I had little to no background as to what was there, but was dragged along on a group trip, so I went with it. There are a couple temples with amazing outlooks. Go at sunset for the best views. Also, in one of the temples lies what I call "the Buddha room" with 5,364 Buddhas within. It's a worthwhile site if you're in town. Prepare for many stairs. Bring water, as it gets hot, and brace yourself for some mild exercise to the top.
  • Such a beautiful place. It is so peaceful and quiet with gorgeous gardens. We were blessed by the Buddhist priest with lotus blossoms. A wonderful ceremony.
  • Climbing the mountain to see the beautiful landscape, pray to Buddha, breath of the fresh air. Yeah, it's Oudong, the best place to escape from the stressful city.
  • Climbed the hill further up road from the main entrance at end of a parking lot/road. Made it much much easier. Fewer steps and easier grade. Then we walked along the hill, saw all the pagodas and stupas, then walked down the 500+ stairs into the main entrance. Ate some of the rice and coconut snack food prepared on the spot by local vendors who are located along the road every weekend. We had an English-speaking Cambodian guide select the snacks for us. Wonderful experience.
  • Old Cambodia. Landscaping is kept up fabulously in most places. Quiet, friendly, peaceful.
