Kbal Spean Tours and Activities

star-5
135 Reviews

While the decaying structures and overgrown temples of Angkor Wat remain among the most popular destinations in Siem Reap, the rare collection of stone carvings along the Stung Kbal Spean River, typically known as simply Kbal Spean, continues to bring art and archaeology lovers outside the city and beyond Angkor.

The impressive carvings that line the riverbed, also known as the "River of a Thousand Lingas", pay homage to the Hindu god Shiva. During the 11th and 12th centuries, artisans chipped away at delicate sandstone leaving intricate phallic symbols, mythological creatures and religious images along the shores. Visitors must trek two kilometers up rocky, uneven terrain to spy the hand-carved statues. Some argue the hike is more trouble than it’s worth, but most agree that travelers seeking to connect with nature and explore Cambodia’s rich and colorful history will appreciate a trip to Kbal Spean.

Save the hassle of visiting the ticket office by buying your 1-, 3-, or 7-day Angkor Archaeological Park pass in advance. Rather than waiting in line to purchase your pass on the day—particularly inconvenient if you’re heading to Angkor Wat for sunrise—your pass is delivered to your hotel the night before your visit, meaning you can go directly to temples such as Ta Prohm and Banteay Samre without wasting time.

By Jeep to Banteay Srey & Ta Nei

By Jeep to Banteay Srey & Ta Nei

Of all the temple complexes in the world, the Angkor Complex certainly hits the top spot for variety and size; from the awe-inspiring centrepiece of it all – Angkor Wat – to the numerous relics of the building, urging of one of the Jayavarman rulers of a bygone era. But once you follow lesser trodden paths with us, one sees more than just those within a stone’s throw away from your Siem Reap accommodation. We’re talking about two temples that deserve as much attention due to their construction and slightly off the beaten path location. To up the ante in terms of experience, we spice your journey up to Banteay Srey and the Ta Nei temple by driving around in a military jeep. • Admire the well-preserved stone carvings of Banteay Srei • Explore the lesser-known Ta Nei temple inside Angkor • Be driven around in an authentic military jeep • Watch how local life unfolds along country roads • Return transfers from and to your hotel are included.
