Kulen Mountain in Cambodia , Siem Reap

Posted by veasna on 22/11/2012 at 21:03

Rather than a hill range, Phnom Kulen is an isolated chain of small mountain plateaux of moderate height lying south of the Dang Rak Mountains. The range stretches for about 40 km in a WNW - ESE direction and is located some 48 km north of Siem Reap.Its highest point is 487 m and its height is quite regular, averaging 400 m all along the range.Geologically Phnom Kulen is formed of sandstone. It was important as a quarry in Angkorian times, the major quarries being located in the southeastern angle of the massif.
