About 10 kilometers north of the Queen's Palace, KbalSpean is also translated as Gobasbin, also known as "Linga" sculpture. It is a typical reproductive worship relic, also known as "Linga" sculpture. The driver took us to the foot of Gobbsbane Hill. He had done his homework before. It was necessary to climb the hill when he visited Gobbsbane. His parents were all wearing climbing shoes. The driver briefly introduced the point of view here, and asked us - "Ready, here to climb the mountain, 1500 meters oh. Suddenly scared my parents, I have no bottom in my heart, did not see such a high mountain..... Even coax and deceive my parents to take the mountain, found that the road is still easy to walk, the taste of the primitive forest is very strong, very interesting. A little way later, we saw a road sign, which said 100 meters. We were happy to blossom. We thought that the vertical distance of the mountain was 1500 meters. It was only 1500 meters in total. Most of the roads were easy to walk. Slowly, there were occasional climbing places. Along the way, the trees are intertwined and there are many old vines. It's like a fairy tale world, but you will encounter all kinds of insects, giant ants. Anyway, enjoy nature. There are many butterflies near the water. They are very beautiful. For Khmer people, it may not be as prominent as Lichi Mountain, but it has no noise, the relief works here are better preserved, I like it here. The rainy season of July-December is the best time to go. There are 1000 Linga carvings at the source of the river, containing the meaning of "light" for the river. According to Brahmanism, the water flowing through Linga is "holy water". Holy water can wash away the gloom, evil, purify the soul, and get God's blessings at the same time. The "bathing pool" carved under the ruins is not a common bathing pool. It should be a place where Christians bathe in holy water and belong to a place of religious activities.
Gaubsbashibin is known as the Mountain of Thousand Yang. The forest flail (penis) is the symbol of Hindu gods. Gobuspian is located in the deep forest more than 40 kilometers northeast of Siem Reap. On the way, the trees are flourishing, the vines can fly as swings, and there is a flying boulder in the road with a strange shape. Arriving at the bridgehead, you will see beautiful sculptures of gods. Down the stream, there are hundreds of stone carvings of forest shackles carved on the riverbed. It is said that the holy water flowing through the forest shackles can wash away the dark and evil, purify the gods and be protected by God. The cultural landscape here is not comparable to that of Angkor Minor. However, arranging this scenic spot in the middle of the way will help to alleviate the visual fatigue that stone architecture and sculpture may bring. Chen likes the primitive feeling here very much. The unusual old trees in Tabulus are everywhere here. The roots and branches become more slender and graceful. The roots of the trees cover the whole hillside like octopods. This is actually the origin of Khmer culture. The sculptures are very primitive and crude. It takes two hours just to climb down the mountain, which requires little physical strength.
The second stop is to Gobusbin, also known as Qianyang River, which is the source of Siem Reap River. Because of the dry season, few tourists come here. The climbing path is very primitive. In the dense woods, the abrupt roots spread everywhere, and the huge rocks are fierce. Although the distance to the mountain is only 1500 meters, it takes a lot of physical energy. It is recommended that donkey friends accompany with each other, especially admire female friends. When climbing the mountain calmly and calmly, there are winding roads and forks, which need constant selection, mutual support and experience of all kinds of mountain scenery, eventually the top can be reached. The sculpture of Shiva on the top of the mountain is very representative. The size of Linga is all over the river bed. A group of elderly people from Japan are very interested in listening to the guide introducing the story of these sculptures. On the way down the mountain, they meet a bored black dog. Perhaps they want to find a companion to go down the mountain and find their way home with the rhythm of our downhill. The dog is also afraid of loneliness and loneliness.
It took us about 4,50 minutes to reach the Qianlinga River scenic spot, which means "Bridgehead" in the sense of Gobbsbane. The so-called Bridgehead is the natural stone bridge on the side of the stream here. Because it is dry season and dry season, we can not see waterfalls between streams, nor can we see the flow of streams. Compared with the water season of Gobbsbane, the scenery is much worse. But the stone carvings at the bottom of the stream, Linga and Youni, and on the riverbed, can be seen very clearly. Scenic area sculpture in the passage of time, serious theft damage, now around the riverbed around Shiqiao, has been limited protection through the circle (so-called circle, but only a circle of thin ropes), tourists can visit outside the circle. The stream continues to move forward arbitrarily, but the road is unable to go. Time does not allow us to continue exploring. It is time to return home. On the way back, our Explorer Xiao Zhang found another beautiful scenic spot. With his surprise and greeting, we turned back and took a few steps to find that we were on the edge of a cliff. What was dangerous was that it was also a beautiful scene. The Valley is full of green trees. Looking at the mountains, the air transpiration in the mountains is like a fairyland. It is different from the previous rainforest landscape. For a moment, it seems like a green city in China, Emei. On the way downhill in Gobbsbane, crutches are absolutely useful. Especially the crutches Xiao Zhang picked up for me, I'm afraid the effect is not inferior to the climbing sticks I bought before. With this climbing stick, the way down the mountain became smooth.
As far away from the city centre is actually a hilltop, it takes 1500 meters to walk up. Maybe it takes more than two hours to go back and forth. It's quite good on the whole. The main thing is to look at some of the reproductive worship above. When I went there, there was more water, so I could see more water streams. If there was less water in the streams, I could basically see a lot of sculptures. It would be nice to have a couple of lounges in the middle led by a police dog.
Gobbsbane is 18 kilometers away from the Queen's Palace. You can also take a Tu-tu bus to go there. Put the Banteay Srei and Gobbsbane in one day and negotiate the price in advance. Finally, there is a fine sandstone road 400 meters to Gobbsbane, which is not very bumpy. I feel like I'm hiking in the subtropical forest. It's much easier to walk with shoes on. Walking to the end of the forest is the sculpture of "Linga" at the source of the river. It's a little vague and not very clear. Walking along the lower reaches of the valley, you can see large relief rocks and small waterfalls below. We also see that many foreigners go to those two places by tu-tu.
On the way, the trees are flourishing, the vines can fly as swings, and there is a flying boulder in the road with a strange shape. Arriving at the bridgehead, you will see beautiful sculptures of gods. Down the stream, there are hundreds of stone carvings of forest shackles carved on the riverbed. It is said that the holy water flowing through the forest shackles can wash away the dark and evil, purify the gods and be protected by God. The cultural landscape here is not comparable to that of Angkor Minor. However, arranging this scenic spot in the middle of the way will help to alleviate the visual fatigue that stone architecture and sculpture may bring. The unusual old trees in Tabulus are everywhere here. The roots and branches become more slender and graceful. The roots of the trees cover the whole hillside like octopods. This is actually the origin of Khmer culture. The sculptures are very primitive and crude.
It's interesting to go to KbalSpean. The TuTuTu can only pull you to the foot of the mountain. The rest of the way is up to you. KbalSpean is a scenic spot hidden in the deep mountains. Its characteristic is that ancient Khmer people carved totems on the bottom of the river bed. Hundreds of Linga are distributed under the stream. It is very spectacular. In order to see such scenery, I walk up the mountain from the foot of the mountain, and the mountain road is not easy to walk. Only a few roads are paved with wooden trestles. The rest of the roads are all big stones, and the road signs are not clear. Often in the deep forest, you suddenly can not find the way. It is very adventurous. On the way up the mountain, I really lost my way in the depths of the dense forest, unable to determine the direction, a person dared not walk around, afraid to enter the minefield, Cambodia has unfinished mine hazards everywhere, is a very worrying thing in the travel. Finally, relying on my magical sense of direction, I found a way out, and went to the stream, saw the expected river bottom Linga, immediately felt that it was a worthwhile trip, 40 minutes of rugged mountain road is nothing at all.
The most tiring part of the outer circle trip should be this section. Children's shoes who don't like mountain climbing are bound to omit Gobusby. Starting from the foot of the mountain, the mountain road passed by the predecessors is still dim and discernible. After half an hour of chatting with the Kaolaf woman, it has reached the middle of the mountain. Encountering butterflies along the way, not afraid of people, or falling on dead wood, or flying around people, or kissing your shoulder, as if shaking into a fragrant concubine, butterfly dancing. Gobbsbane, the birthplace of Siem Reap River, has not seen its sanctity. The river bed full of gods is a symbol of great achievements in history.
Gobbsburg hides deep in the mountains and climbs for half a day. For those of me who don't like climbing, it takes a long time to see Gobbsburg and fight with myself. When I first went to Angkor, I finally abandoned it. But when I come back and see other people's photos, I regret it. So when I went to Angkor again, I pulled my friends together. Three of them were walking in the woods, talking and laughing, but they didn't think how long the mountain road was. When we arrived at the Qianyang River and saw the sculptures on the riverbed and the 1000 Linga standing on the riverbed, we felt no fatigue but surprise. Hinduism's worship of Linga really reached its acme. In fact, the river is not very long to visit, and there is no development here. The road along the river is very primitive and slippery, and the people behind it keep going forward, so they can't stay at Linga, so they have to leave if they take a picture. If you want to play slowly, or you want to sit by the river and think, you'd better come in the morning or evening, because these two periods, people are basically in the Queen's Palace.
