Kampong Phluk is a cluster of three villages of stilted houses built within the floodplain of the Tonle Sap lake, about 16 km southeast of Siem Reap, Cambodia. Flooded mangrove forest surrounds the area and is home to a variety of wildlife including crab-eating macaques, and 3000 human inhabitants.
The houses of Kompong Phluk are built on top of wooden poles and stilts between six and eight meters high and tower over the boats moored along the river, which snakes through the village before heading out into the Tonle Sap lake. During the dry season when the lake is low, the buildings in the villages seem to soar atop their 6-meter stilts exposed by the lack of water. At this time of year many of the villagers move out onto the lake and build temporary houses. In the wet season when water level rises, the villagers move back to their permanent houses on the floodplain, the stilts now hidden under the water.

What an amazing adventure!! Dara was a wonderful guide. He was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the village, lake communities, Cambodian history and culture. This was the first trip we took in Cambodia, straight from the airport (Dara picked us up) we headed to the floating village and absolutely and almost instantly fell in love with the country. Dara, we hope to be back soon to take another trip with you!
