Zipping through the trees

Zipping through the Angkor Park
Did I mention flying through Angkor at tree-top level? No, well this month will see a brand new experience for visitors to the Angkor Archaeological Park in Siem Reap. None other than The Flight of the Gibbon – Angkor Experience, which has been running successfully in rainforest locations in Thailand for the last few years. The new arrival at Angkor offers an opportunity to soar on ziplines, traverse suspended sky bridges and abseil from towering trees, all within the forest surrounding the Angkor temples, giving you a birds-eye view of the jungle canopy. It sounds and looks a bundle of fun for those inclined to an adrenaline rush, but the company also plan to protect the eco-system. Planting new trees and other conservation projects, maybe even releasing gibbons into the forest, will be a key element of the new FOTG Experience. I've been invited to try it out, so on my next Siem Reap excursion, I will.

Thank you for writing about our new location! We're so excited to open up Angkor Archaeological Park to visitors, and to have a large positive environment on the eco-system and natural habitat. See you soon at Flight of the Gibbon!
