"Kbal Spean" Angkor Wat Things to Do Tip by redeyeblues

Angkor Wat Things to Do: 820 reviews and 1,809 photos

I'm not particularly fit - it took me an hour and a half to hike through the whole thing and back. For the most part you're hiking slightly uphill through some trails and some tree roots and rocks. The stream is not big and you probably won't be walking along the stream until you get there. I think most people get up there, take pictures of the carvings in the river, then go back down to see the waterfall. It is not a particularly difficult, just hot as it is a tropical country. If you wear the right shoes and have water with you, you should be fine. To get to the waterfall, you go down some steep wooden stairs but it's probably manageable for most. I saw an older gentleman and some kids do it. I don't think a tour is necessary unless you're interested in detailed explanation of the place. There are many tourists when i was there in late December, 2009 so I'm assuming it's pretty safe. Here are some pictures I took of the hike to Kbal Spean
