Kbal Spean Resort, Cambodia


Kbal Spean has a distance of 50 kilometers northeast of Siem Reap provincial town or around 18 kilometers from Banteay Srei along with dirty road. It may spend from one to two hours to reach there from the provincial town.

Kbal Spean, Original River of Thousand Lingams, is an intricately carved riverbed deep in the foothills in Cambodian jungle. Lingams are well known as phallic representation sacred to Brahmanism for symbols of fertility. Accordingly, hundreds of them are carved into rock here, and several carvings of gods and animals are above the small waterfall. The area was found in 1969 by French researcher Jean Boubet who identified the carvings in local hermit.

With reference to the natural rock bridge, Kbal Spean is one of the easiest ways to get a short jungle trek in the Angkor area. It may be spent 30 minutes walking to the carvings via steamy forest and some curious rock formations. This best travel should be between July and December because at other times of year the river is rapidly dried up.
