Tour Itinerary

In the morning visit The Great Tonle Sap Lake (8:00AM – 12:00PM)

The great Tonle Sap Lake is the richest fresh water fishing ground in the world, a national treasure producing an ever-changing landscape. The communities that live around the margins of the lake cope with huge seasonal variations in water levels by building their homes on floating bamboo rafts or 30ft stilts. It is well worth the extra effort to get away from the touristy village of Kampong Pluk to the more genuine stilted villages – or Chong Kneas (dependent on water levels) – for an understanding of contemporary lake life.

Take the opportunity to pause at the stilted houses to see learn how a subsistence fishing family lives, before continuing by boat along the margins of the lake. While you explore the life on the water we will have prepared a picnic lunch for you to enjoy on-board while absorbing the atmosphere of this unique locality.
