Angkor provides the ultimate backdrop for a zipline experience, although you won't actually see the temples while navigating the course. Flight of the Gibbon Angkor is located inside the Angkor protected area and the course includes 10 ziplines, 21 treetop platforms, four skybridges and an abseil finish. There is a panoramic refreshment stop at the halfway stage and highlights include a tandem line for couples.
Safety is a priority and high-flyers are permanently clipped to lines via carabiners, with clear English instruction throughout. There is also a conservation element to the project, as thus far two pairs of rescued gibbons have been released into the surrounding forest. Each pair has since had a baby, and there are plans to introduce more pairs of gibbons and other species in the future.
The price includes transfer to any Siem Reap hotel, plus lunch before or after the trip near Sra Srang. Located near Ta Nei temple, it's a great addition to the activities on offer around Siem Reap and Angkor. Watch a Lonely Planet YouTube video of the experience at www.youtube.com/watch?v=UJzEtKoITrg
