TONLE SAP - CAMBODIA


Cambodia's Great Lake, the Tonle Sap Lake is the most prominent feature on the map of Cambodia - a huge dumbbell-shaped body of water stretching across the northwest section of the country. In the wet season, the Tonle Sap Lake is the largest freshwater lakes in Asia, swelling to an expansive 12,000 km. During the dry half of the year the Lake shrinks to as small as 2500 km, draining into the Tonle Sap River, which meanders southeast, eventually merging with the Mekong River at the confluence of rivers opposite Phnom Penh. But during the wet season a unique hydrologic phenomenon causes the river to reverse direction, filling the lake instead of draining it. In harmony with the specialized ecosystems, the human occupations at the edges of the lake is similarly distinctive - floating villages, towering stilted houses, huge fish traps,
and an economy and way of life deeply intertwined with the lake.
