Tours on Tonle Sap Lake and floating villages in Cambodia

Tonle Sap Lake, a fascinating world-record holder. Tonle Sap Lake is located near the town of Siem Reap, gateway to the world-famous temples of Angkor, and feeds the population of five provinces thanks to its bountiful supply of fish and shells. During the rainy season, its total area grows from 2,700 square kilometers to 12,000 square kilometers. With the monsoon, the Mekong River discharges its excess amount of water into Tonle Sap Lake by inverting the water flow along Tonle Sap river, the connecting tributary. This unique phenomenon makes it the largest freshwater lake in Cambodia and in South-East Asia, as well as the most important freshwater fish reserve in Cambodia.

The Lake Tonle Sap shelters over 200 different fish species, as well as a sanctuary for birds of all sizes, including endangered ones. The Tonle Sap floating villages attest to the importance of Cambodia's Tonle Sap's crucial role in the daily life of Cambodians for whom fish is staple food and for the numerous fishermen who live in the local floating or stilted villages.
