Please note this tour covers a great deal of ground both in terms of cultural content and geography. While this will make for a deeply rewarding experience, participants should be prepared for lengthy journeys, often over bumpy ground, in addition to several internal flights. When visiting sites we will frequently be walking over uneven ground and pavements, and steep steps without handrails. Particularly in Cambodia, participants should feel comfortable standing in hot weather, walking through the forest and stepping over fallen stones at some temples.
