Lake of Tônlé-Sab, Cambodia

  • Lake of Tônlé-Sab, Cambodia

Lake of Tônlé-Sab, Cambodia in Dec. 2001. The lake is a natural floodplain reservoir on the Sab rive, a tributary of the Mekong. During the June-to-November monsoonal regime, the swollen Mekong creates a backwater effect which reverses the flow direction in the lake.
