Off the grid in Thailand's most pristine wilderness area
With no electricity, running water or communications of any kind this floating camp is completely off the grid. This is a remote and dramatic landscape created by a dam and dominated by limestone up-thrusts and virgin forest. The only accommodation on this vast lake are a few floating camps, The Paiwan Raft House being my Prefered floating hut. 6 species of monkeys, wild elephants and tropical birds are plentiful in this roadless wilderness. In 20 years living in SE Asia I have yet to find a wild area of this quality It's hard work to get there but once in Camp life is that much closed to perfect
