KHOM PONG KHLEANG
Duration: 1 DAY
Visiting time: from 08:00 am
In many parts of the world, particularly the Asia-Pacific, people face an uncertain future because of rising sea levels. Islands such as Kiribati are sinking into the ocean and Bangladesh suffers from devastating floods. Yet some regions are able to adapt and take advantage of seasonal floods. One such village is Kompong Khleang in Cambodia.
Kompong Khleang is located in the flood plain of the Tonlé Sap, the biggest lake in South-East Asia. The water level of the lake fluctuates greatly throughout the year so the villagers live either in houses built on stilts or on floating platforms. During the wet season, from October to January, the Mekong River floods into the Tonlé Sap and the surrounding area. By February and March the water begins to recede so that by April the outer areas of the lake are dry. Now the villages are no longer 'floating', but perch on stilts 10 metres above the ground.
Because of the regularity of the flooding and the gradual rise of the flood plain, the villagers of Kompong Khleang have been able to build a permanent community within the flood plain of the lake. Its population is estimated between 10 000 and 20 000 people who live in harmony with the changing ecosystem that the lake provides, mostly fishing in the lake and farming in the rich flood plains around it.
In Kompong Khleang you can see a range of activities. The centre of the village, which is actually an island, is busy with its markets, shops, pagoda and schools, whereas a short distance away, century-old traditions continue as residents of every age prepare the smoked and dried fish that will be sold in stores across Cambodia and South-East Asia
