We leave Siem Reap at 8:30 am and travel south/east through small beautiful rural villages and rice fields towards the great lake. Depending on the time of year and the current water levels we go as far as we can by road where our boats will be waiting for you. We travel the rest of the way by boat down the Kompong Phluk river and into the main village.
The village is home to approx 3000 predominately Khmer fishing people, where, depending on the time of year, we will either sail on through the main street of the village (when the water is high the roads become a river) or walk along it in the low water level season. Whichever way its a great opportunity to see how the rural fishing villages work/live and go about there daily tasks. There are a few schools, large Buddha pagoda and many stilted homes towering some 9 meters high to adapt to the changing water levels. It is a lovely peaceful place to visit anytime of the year, as well as seeing how a vast majority of Cambodians live as fishermen or farmers and get an insight into their way of life.
From there we transfer into our small boats and row you through the flooded forest of Kompong Phluk (or if the water levels are low we walk through the treetop canopy walkway). The name of Kompong Phluk means “Harbor of the tusks”. We then proceed onto the great lake itself and see the small floating village which moves in and out depending on the water levels, as the community works around the seasonal variance of the great lake as the actual level of the lake can vary by up to 10 meters.
All our boats are licensed and captained by experienced drivers and all include life jackets. We also have back up boats as with all our tours the Kompong Phluk special half day includes everything with no more to pay. We only have limited numbers and specialize in taking smaller groups so booking is recommended at least the day before. Booking can be done via the travel agents in Siem Reap.
