Simply awesome

Our coffee break stop overlooking the forest and listening to the wild gibbons
The evergreen forest cover in the Southern Cardamoms is simply awesome. I wouldn't have believed it until I saw it for myself. 1.7 million acres, patrolled by Wildlife Alliance's forest rangers, are protected and is thriving. It's home to at least 400 wild elephants and countless other endangered animals, but remains under threat. To fly over it was a rare privilege. I was mesmerized. We even landed the chopper on a cliff edge to take in the view, listen to the calls of the gibbons and have some croissants and coffee! Click to enlarge the photos.
Another Cardamoms snap with a river running through the dense forest

This forested hill was one of the last we flew over before the Cardamoms came to an end
