Lovely shady bushwalk - but wear proper shoes and bring swimmers: you could stand underneath the very small waterfall when we were there and the water was clean and refreshing. Having not checked the guidebooks, if we hadn't looked closely we would have maybe missed the old parts of the temple visible in and along the stream, but once you... More

The significance of the carvings is more impressive than the actual carvings, though it is amazing they still exist, being under water so long you'd expect them to have been worn away. It's a 3 km round trip walk from the car park on a path which is rocky in places

Found this hike to more strenuous than we would have imagined for a pretty small waterfall. I would say if you have lots of time in Siem Reap may be worth it, but not if you only have a few days.

Although the place is located nearly 50 km away Siem Reap is worth to go! Nice forest walk and minimal crowd of tourist make this place a real Cambodian experience. Many villages and beautiful landscape-views along the way to.

The guidebooks aren't kidding when they advise to wear stout shoes and take plenty of water and insect repellent. (My walking shoes were stout, but the soles were worn.) That said, it was well worth the climb: Forty minutes up and another forty down. If anything, the footing is even more dangerous on the way down. I can see why... More

This was the best place to visit in Siem Reap after Angkor Wat. The whole trek up to the waterfall and the engravings of thousand lingas and Gods on the waterfall was absolutely surreal. Must go !

Took a tuk tuk, albeit its a bit of a way the scenery along the way is true Cambodia. You go through small villages then hit the farms with mango trees etc. when we arrived at the base we unhooked the tuk tuk and drove up the mountain. Was a great way to see it, in a car it would... More

There had been heavy rains in the area in the 24 hours before my visit. So not a lot to see just shadows. I did walk up to a natural spring which had such fresh water you could cup your hands and take a drink. The children here are very pushy and loud, I was glad to have a guide... More
