Kbal Chhay Waterfall, Sihanoukville

3.4
#2 of 7 in Parks in Sihanoukville
Waterfall Nature / Park
A former hideout of the notorious Khmer Rouge, Kbal Chhay Waterfall today serves as a popular tourist destination and a clear water reservoir for the nearby town. The water gathers from several sources and cascades 14 m (46 ft) over multiple tiers. Take a dip in the refreshingly cool pool and the bottom of the waterfall, or buy some snacks from the local food stalls and find the perfect place for a picnic. The lush green area around the falls serves as a popular picnicking spot, but can also get quite messy with rubbish left behind by visitors.

  • Quite the bumpy adventure to get there in a tuk tuk! We went during torrential Rains. We were drenched the entire time, walked through the flooded little village, came to the incredible roaring waterf...  more »
  • Who is in the rainy season there should be out on a weekday there. There's no one there, no tourists there are no locals, only the arbiter who operate small stalls. The waterfall is also much more beautiful at this time and you can swim still in the clear water above the waterfall. Visitors quiet days by far my favourite in Sihanoukville.

  • Can't give a good description about it. Ran 20km from Sihanoukville as part of my marathon training and got there at 7a.m. in the morning for a relaxing break before the tourist pack arrived.  more »

  • Good day trip. Take a car tuk tuk or taxi. The roads are rough. At the waterfall area, there are shops where you can buy food, swimming suits and drinks. Bought swimming shorts for $2.5! Grab a seat and enjoy food, drinks, and the soothing sound of water. Or, put on swimming trunks and hop in. It's also a pretty decent place for photos who do long exposure landscapes.
  • The forest around here should be protected to serve visitor for long term tourism site.
  • Dirty water.. dirty area.. need regulation for the tourist that come to this area.. actually great place but become worst because no one take care
  • Good place but not many things available up there.
  • Great waterfall with fresh water. Good time to visit here is around May. If you come here at dry season there're will be not enough water to play. This place is really popular for local people and tourism.
