We took a day trip outside of Siem Reap to include Beng Mealea, Kbal Spean and Banteay Srei. There is a 3km round trip in the forest which is uphill one way and down hill back. There are some steep parts and also lots of...More

Its a refreshing hike about 2km uphill to reach the river bed. The scenery filled with climbing trees and large stones will keep you entertained along the way. Do bring some light refreshments and have a picnic at the benches by the river bed. It...More

A demanding trek to see the 1000 Lingas embedded in a small rivulet is worth every minute. The sight is awesome once you reach the top. Not to miss adventure, yes remember to put on your jogging or sports shoes as the track is definitely...More

The stream with a care river bed is just amazing. It's a 1.5 km rough track with some steep climbs through magical woods. Get there early - as the magic diminishes with more people and the paths are quite narrow. Best to go by car...More

We really enjoyed the journey to this place. The road up is long and bumpy (previously controlled by the Khmer Rouge), then there's a 1.5km "jungle" trek to find the carvings. Jungle is a bit strong a word, though there are vines and tree roots....More

Kbal Spean is best described as a nice walk after a scenic drive in the countryside. Decided to go by TukTuk (the slow way) so to enjoy the scenery and a very comfortable 1 and a half hour drive. Kbal Spean river bed carvings (to...More

No, but it would be quite hot and tiring. PLUS from the base of the hill you have to climb anyway. And that is for at least 45 minutes. So it's preferable to hire a car.
