Angkor Wat is one of the most splendid icons of Cambodia. This magnificent complex was the royal throne of the ancient empire that settled in Cambodia. Today, modern globe-trotters trek through forest, hills or farm land. The temples are also located near Great Lakes and the modern town of Siem Reap. Once trekkers reach the compound, they will have the opportunity to explore over one thousand temples. Some are piles of rubbish, lost to the ages, while others are as majestic as the multi-chambered Angkor Wat which holds the honor of being the largest single religious monument in the entire world.
