Hi. I will be travelling with another couple nearing 70 years old. They are not very fit but not handicapped. Is the trek to waterfall a bit too demanding and or dangerous? How long does it take an average adult? Is the drive to and from 'scary? How long does drive from Siam Reap take? Thanks anyone... Dave
