Located in the lower Mekong Basin, Tonle Sap is a part of the Tonle Sap river formed from the Mekong river. Known popularly as the 'Great Lake,' its varying size is a beautiful phenomenon. The lake swells to become one of the largest in Asia, spreading for over 10,000 square kilometers in the wet season and submerging forests around. And during the dry season, it shrinks drastically, reducing to just 3000 square kilometers, which brings the dense forests above the water, making the land fertile. This vast lake serves as a home to more than 1.2 million people along with being the source of food and livelihood.
