No, but it would be quite hot and tiring. PLUS from the base of the hill you have to climb anyway. And that is for at least 45 minutes. So it's preferable to hire a car.
Hey! I'm planning on driving to Kabul Spean tomorrow on a motor bike. Is there a pass or a ticket I need to buy in advance etc? Or can I just go

You can buy the ticket when arrive there... be careful, the site closes at 15.00...
We plan to visit Kbal Spean and heard that you can wade in the water or actually sit under the waterfall. If that is right is there any place to change out of our wet clothes ?
