On a very narrow single track I meet this guy busy cutting the bamboo down to take back to the village, he mentioned khao lam so I guess that’s what its for.
Here was the only wide part of the track with room to turn around

One of these tracks makes a surprise loop back to the road.
This pretty much ties up mapping the tracks that I have been concentrating on for the past week, so now a new area needs to be chosen
