The Temples of Angkor Wat - Cambodia

Our next big adventure in SE Asia was at the temples of Angkor Wat in Cambodia. We saw many temples during our travels, but none were as big or impressive as these. Some of the temples were massive and out in the open while others were slowly being overrun by the surrounding jungle.

Ta Prohm temple was the most impressive of all of them.

We nearly walked right by this temple...very hidden in the jungle

These are "working"elephants who take tourists up a steep trail to a hidden temple at the top of a hill...a perfect sunset spot. We walked, but still found it fascinating to watch the elephants.

It was incredible to see so many amazing temples, but the intense heat and humidity made mid-day very, it was time to escape to the islands!
