As one of only two sites in the world with this amount of carving on the river bed this place is not to be missed. There are over a thousand carved lingams on the river bed and Hindu mythological scenes too including a reclining Vishnu. Make sure you go downriver from the point at which the path ends to see many more carvings and get a real feel of the scale of the work. It is better to go when the river is low (outside the rainy season) to be able to fully appreciate the carvings. The path is pretty but very uneven so make sure you are wearing suitable footwear. You can combine the trip here with a visit to Banteay Srei which I strongly recommended. See my review of it

A little out of Siam Reap but reachable in an hour. Lovely site with Hindu religious carvings on the sandstone river bed. Well worth the hike through the forest. When we visited it was very dry, no complains as we were able to see many of the wonderful and intricate carvings. A lovely visit. The river of a thousand lingas.

As a family we decided to leave the town of Siem Reap and head to Kbal Spean. It was not crowed when we arrived mid morning, but the trails were filling up as we departed. The hike was not too hard, but very diverse and enjoyable. There are several lookout points for amazing photos. In the dry season there is less water, but you are able to see more of the stone carvings. Enjoy and have fun.

This lesser advertised site is a gem to behold. A shaivites bucket list dream for sure. (The other known SahasraLinga site in the world is in India, located around 14 km from the Sirsi Taluk in the district of Uttar Kannada of Karnataka.) The Cambodian SahasraLinga is amazing to behold with the more than thousand Lingas in the rockbed of the river. One can do the 1.8km jungle trek or get a driver to take you to the stream directly. With less able tourists and young children opt for the latter. The carved rock formations date back to 11th century and span 150 meters of the Stung Kbal Spean River. It must have taken some effort to hammer out these carvings in the presence of flowing water. They are arranged in formations grouped into 8x8 matrices. These groups of 64 signify the 64 forms of Lord Shiva described in the Puranas. There is also a submerged carving of the reclining form of Lord Vishnu slightly further upstream. Couple this site with a visit to nearby Buddha and Shiva Temple followed by a dip in the waterfalls which is totally refreshing. If your itinerary allows, do not miss this hidden gem - an archaeologists’ pilgrimage.

We went in the dry season when the water was very low but could see all the carvings easier. The waterfall was still enough for a shower and the kids to have a play in the little hole at the bottom. Our youngest is 5 and she managed but be mindful that the hike up is about 3.5km round trip. We included this visit after our trip to Banteay Srei temple. This is a whole day from siem reap via tuk tuk. The road is also now sealed so it is fine in the tuk tuk.
