Climb 700 Steps to Wat Sampeou

Wat Sampeou, a colorful temple on top of monolithic, 330-foot-tall Sampeau mountain, can be reached by climbing up 700 steps (or taking a less rigorous path). The temple and three natural caves nearby are filled with Buddhist shrines and statues. The caves also contain human remains, because the Khmer Rouge used the mountain caves as killing fields during the war.
