This photo was taking at the end of a two day trek in Nam Ha NPA. It is incredible how much forest is still being burnt for agriculture purposes. Villages, like this one, are right inside the national park and people often use slash and burn farming techniques. But it is not like you can simply kick them out either – where would they go? It’s a balls up.
