Phu Hin Bun NPA

The Phu Hin Bun NPA is a huge (1.580 sq km) wilderness area of turquoise streams, monsoon forest and striking karts topography across central Khammuan.
It was made a protected area in 1993 and it's no overstatement to say this is some of the most breathtaking country in the region.
Passing through on foot or by boat it's hard not to feel awestruck by the very scale of the limestone cliffs that rise almost vertically for hundreds of metres into the sky.
Flora clings to the cracks in the cliff face, at once wonderfully isolated and desperately exposed.
Although much of the NPA is inaccessible by road, local people have reduced the numbers of key forest-dependent species through hunting and logging, but there is still enough to see.
