    2004 - Watch Your Step!

    by AlbuqRay Written May 29, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are many steps up to the four temple levels. They are steep and uneven from use and weathering. In some places, sandbags were used to fill in gaps but those are falling apart now also. It is even harder coming down. Everything is relative though. The kids there run up and down the stairs like mountain goats.

    The picture shows part of the 162 steps up to the Level 1 Temple. The top is guarded by two nagas.

    DON'T GET SHOT!!!

    by davidjo Written Aug 2, 2014

    As there have been a few skirmishes between the Thai and Cambodian troops due to a land dispute the ruins are closed now and again. Since 2009 it has not been possible to cross the border, and in 2010 the border was sealed of completely with razor wire. There have been 41 deaths during the border disputes in April 2009, February and May 2011. Check to see if the ruins are open before you go there.

    These red stakes at the Level 1 Temple warn visitors that there are landmines on the other side. Just stay on the temple side and you will be fine.
