Phnom Bakeng is a small temple located a top of hill. A height of the hill is about 60m, and a height of the temple is 47m. You can see good view from a top of temple. You can see a tower of Angkor Wat to a direction of south-east, I didn't aware it. Stairway to the temple is 70 degree and I was scared of it.

An approach to the temple was closed

A steps to approach to the temple was closed. You can find many pictures of people going through this approach. I can guess if many tourists going up on this approach, then the steps crumble easily.

 

I make a panorama from pictures taken at the hill

Many tourists come to see a sunset. I went there in the evening, but I couldn't see a sunset because of many clouds. A time of sunset in March is arround 18:30, and the tourists have to leave there by 18:00.
