  • How to arrive in Kbal Spean

Kbal Spean is located 50 kms northeast of Siem Reap and a direct trip by car takes about an hour. A visit to Kban Spean can be combined with a visit to the temple of Banteay Srei -15 kms directly south of the road,and 25 km from the main Angkorian temples. The best time to visit is from May to December when the river and the waterfall have a good flow.

Kbal Spean is a tributary of Siem Reap River. There are amazing sculptures of Hindu gods and creatures on the river bed. The sculptures dating from the eleventh to the thirteenth century and are mainly lingas, thus the name “river of a thousand lingas”.The 45 minute hike through the forest leading up to the river is fascinating. The route is mostly flat, with a lot of tree roots sticking out, but some areas need climbing over large rocks, sturdy hiking sandal or boot is needed.
