Photographer's Note

My FIRST submission after 3 weeks travelling. I am really glad to see a lot of beautiful pictures here again and catch-up ...

My FIRST picture is from TONLE SAP LAKE - The largest fresh water lake of Southeast Asia (floating village of Kampong Phluk).

Lakes especially the large ones have the power to influence the life style of the people who live around it by giving them food, water and transportation. But few lakes have influenced the life of almost three million people to such a great magnitude like Lake Tonle Sap located right at the heart of Cambodia.

Surrounding the lake are numerous villages as the lake’s water level varies these villages live in stilted houses (houses that are built on large poles up to 10 meters in height). Kampong Phluk is a cluster of three villages surrounded by mangrove forests; it has a population of around 3000 people and can be accessed from Siem Reap.

Village of Kampong Phluk is still not frequently visited by tourists but if you are around ... I would strongly suggest to do so. Beautiful.
