Your Tomb Raider Temple Adventure in Cambodia

As a passionate Tomb Raider fan, I set out to channel my inner Lara Croft on an expedition through Cambodia’s ancient temple ruins – Ta Prohm, Bayon and Beng Mealea.

These crumbling jungle temples provided the perfect setting for my adventurous imagination, just like in the video games!

Your Tomb Raider Temple Adventure in Cambodia

Key Things I Discovered on My Tomb Raider Temple Tour in Cambodia:

  • Ta Prohm: Iconic tree roots infiltrating stone corridors, inscriptions and Apsara carvings. Careful climbing required!
  • Bayon: Epic bas relief carvings and the stunning sight of giant Bodhisattva faces smiling mysteriously down from the towers.
  • Beng Mealea: An exhilarating jungle climb through precariously piled stones and rubble. Intricate carvings still emerging from the foliage.

“These 12th century temple sites stand as a testament not only to the mighty Khmer empire but also the persistent regenerative powers of nature working slowly to reclaim the structures.” – Mr. Brown, Tour guide leader in Cambodia

What advice do Cambodian tour guides have for safely navigating these ancient sites?

Having led tour groups through Ta Prohm, Bayon and Beng Mealea’s ancient ruins for over 15 years, veteran Cambodian guide Sopheak Seng stresses, “Respect and awareness are key to safely navigating these mystically beautiful but unstable sites.” 

He provides some ideas for travelers setting off on their own Tomb Raider temple excursions.

  • Proceed with caution as the uneven and rubble-strewn paths can be tricky to traverse.
  • Strictly avoid barricaded or restricted zones, steer clear of loose rock or crumbling walls.
  • Do not try climbing higher ruined structures due to steep, hazardous piles of stone.
  • Wear sturdy, grippy shoes and keep one hand free to brace at all times.
  • Most importantly, remain mindful to soak in the magic these 12th century temples exude while pacing yourself slowly and carefully.
