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.
