If access is closed when you visit then you can still enjoy the spectacular scenery of the Khao Phra Wihan National Park and view the temple from a distance of about 500 metres. The main attraction in the Khao Phra Wihan National Park is the Pha Moh I-Daeng viewpoint from where you can see the Preah Vihear temple as well as a stunning vista of the plains of Cambodia. There is an interesting relief carved into the rock face beneath the viewpoint which is accessible by a path. The relief is believed to be over 1,000 years old depicts three unidentified characters.
