Prek Toal Bird Sactuary (BW01) Full Day
Itineraries: Prek Toal

The bird sanctuary at Prek Toal core area of the Tonle Sap Biosphere Reserve is called "the single most important breeding ground in South-East Asia for globally threatened large water birds." The Biosphere covers 31,282 hectares at the north-west tip of the Tonle Sap Lake and plays host to species including Greater and Lesser Adjuncts, Black-headed Ibis, Painted Stork, Milky Stork, Spot-billed Pelican, Grey-Headed Fish Eagle and many more species. Of the three Biosphere core areas on the Tonle Sap Lake, Prek Toal is the most accessible from Siem Reap and the most popular with birdwatchers. The best time of year for viewing is the dry season when flocks of migratory birds congregate at Prek Toal. As the dry season progresses and the water recedes, the number of birds increases but the travel to some of the more important viewing areas becomes more difficult. A day trip is commended to visit the bird sanctuary with early departure.
