The Tonle Sap Lake, commonly known as the Great Lake, is located at the heart of Cambodia, and is the soul of the nation. Not only does the lake sustain Cambodians with more than 75% of the country's fresh water fish catch, it also provides fresh water to more than 3 million people. Tonle Sap Lake is a source of immense national pride in Cambodia.
