Angkor Archaeological Park

Angkor Wat One of 7 Man-Made Wonders of the World

Stretching over some 400 square kilometres, including the ancient forest where Angkor Zipline is located, Angkor Archaeological Park contains the magnificent remains of several capitals of the Khmer Empire of the 9th to the 15th centuries. Remarkably, the largest pre-industrial city in the world remains almost as it was hundreds of years ago.

Angkor Park Temples

The most famous is the Temple of Angkor Wat, shown above, followed by Angkor Thom, and Bayon Temple with its countless sculptural decorations.

Angkor Archaeological Park was declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1992. At the same time, it was also placed on the List of World Heritage in Danger due to looting, a declining water table, and unsustainable tourism. UNESCO has now set up a wide-ranging program to safeguard this symbolic site and its surroundings.

 

Angkor Zipline is committed to protecting the Park and we will share ways that you can help preserve and protect the Park during your visit!
