You quickly leave Ban Hang rice paddies behind to wade cross a small river. Once over the river, the valley narrows into a tight jungle clad ravine, before once again opening out into the terraced paddy fields of the neighboring community. You start a steep and steady climb up through the paddies, houses and gardens on these heavily-cultivated slopes.
