Kompong Khleang Floating Village
Kompong Khleang Village in the National Park
East of Kompong Phluk is Kompong Khleang. Kompong Khleang is a huge place next to the Tonle Sap town; the largest permanent settlement on the lake actually. As all communities around the lake, the fishing community of Kompong Khleang undergoes dramatic and continual changes due to the seasonal flood levels caused by the reverse flow of the Tonle Sap river.
Kompong Khleang is accessible by water and by land at certain times of the year. The view coming in from the lake, especially when the lake is down in the dry season and the hundreds of houses and other buildings are soaring several meters above the water is nothing short of spectacular! There is also a small floating village that moves around the vicinity of Kompong Khleang.
