View of the area from Umin Thounzeh

This is in March which is the dry season so everything is quite brown. I didn't notice that any burning was going on here like they do in the mountains. That style is called Slash and Burn.

As I've already mention the views are very beautiful. There are Payas everywhere. I don't think you can aim your camera and not see a paya in the viewfinder!
