“nice easy jungle hike”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2014

1.5km jungle hike will lead you to a small waterfall and stone carvings along the river. Very nice hike along the natural path, tons of butterflies here also. The waterfall is small, but you can walk behind it and take a powerful shower to cool off after the hike. Not crowded at all, and it makes the difference. A tuk-tuk can take you there for about $25. Better to combine the visit to Lady Temple for the same money.

“Absoutley brilliant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 July 2014

A 1.8km walk through the forest to the carvings and waterfall. If you travel quietly and observe the surroundings on the way up there is a whole lot of nature to observe. The dip under the waterfall at the top is worth it.

“Felt like a tiny conqueror/explorer when I reached the waterfalls!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2014

Hiked up 1.5 km to Kbal Spean where you will find the secret behind the sacredness of all of the temples and the water that passes through the park!

Great for those who love the outdoors, and don't mind a little sweat before getting a real balanced treat of nature, Khmer culture and artwork.

we saw waterfall and enjoyed walking up the hill so it took 1 hour to reach there to see the carving. We loved to walk through the jungle.

“If you want to hike...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 July 2014

Don't go here for the carvings or waterfalls. Go here if you want to go for a peaceful hike. 30 minutes each way.

If I had a do over, I would not go.
