My sister Angie and I went with Marom by Tuk Tuk to Kbal Spean which is 63 kilometers from Siem Reap. This is where the fun started, we had to walk up a mountain for 1.5 kilometers and it was so hot. The walk is classed as moderate but in the heat it felt quite difficult in places, it would be dangerous if it had been raining.

There are a few wooden stairs in the very steep sections but the rest of the walk uphill is over boulders and in between tree roots etc.  It takes about 45 minutes to get to the top and took us 30 minutes to come down.

 Once you are at the top it is very beautiful, this is where you will find the River of 1000 Linga’s plus carvings in the rocks of Buddha and other various images. The majority of them are under water, so this is a very different place to visit.

There are also a couple of small waterfalls. We really enjoyed Kbal Spean and the trip there and back, definitely worth a visit. Entrance here is with the normal Angkor Pass.
