    Should be able to do it, though could be rough going.

    Two main routes:
    Siem Reap to Anlong Veng by share taxi then moto to Preah Vihear, or
    Siem Reap to Tbeng Meanchey by share taxi then moto or taxi to Preah Vihear.

    If roads are bad, the latter is probably the better route, but I'd recommend asking around in Siem Reap about road conditions.

    Lastly, you'll want to check on current affairs and check the temple will actually be open.

    Hope that helps.

    $150 per day would be extremely expensive for Siem Reap and trips outwards. We had an offer of $30 per day for a taxi. I have the name of the driver we had if you want it.

    I think they were talking about Prasat Preah Vihear, which is on the Northern border with Thailand.

    I went there in Jan 2010 on the road from PP (via Tbeng Meanchey) and then onwards via Anlong Veng. The journey was done in a Toyota Camry with a Cambodian driver. All of the roads around there were having pipes installed to drain water from the surrounding land away from the road.

    It is about 4 hours from Siem Reap. We stayed at a little/basic guesthouse at the base on the mountain and visited in the afternoon and again at dawn. Well worth it for a magical location with very few tourists (no other tourists at dawn!).
