Tonle Sap Lake

Tonle Sap Lake (from the Tonle Sap River): Are you planning your trip to Tonle Sap Lake? Let us be your brief travel guide on what to see in the very special reiver.

Tonle Sap Lake is also known as the Great Lake which is only 30 minutes drive by car from center of Siem Riep city. Tonle Sap Lake is a combination between lake and river system in Cambodia. It plays a very important role because it is the largest fresh water lake in Southeast Asia and also the richest fishing lake in the world. The Tonle Sap is a unique ecological hotspot and its dimension changes twice per year depend on monsoon and dry season. In changing seasons, the lake can expand and shrink by four times its size. The monsoon season is the best time for tourists to explore the Tonle Sap Lake because at that time the lake can expand from 2.700km2 to more than 10.000km2.

Moreover, this provides a perfect breeding ground for fishes and birds and this is one of the main reason why the Tonle Sap has been designated a UNESCO Biosphere. When you visit the Tonle Sap Lake, you may be surprised not only by the specialized ecosystems but also by the human living in the edge of the lake. They have created floating villages, towering stilted houses, huge fish traps and all of them made a beautiful picture of the harmony between nature and humans.
