Cheow Lan Lake, Khao Sok National Park, Thailand

The 1982 construction of the Ratchaprapha Dam by the Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand was a complete tragedy for the wildlife of Khao Sok National Park. The dam created a vast lake, the Cheow Lan Lake, which swallowed up the surrounding rainforest, the only remnants being the towering limestone karsts seen in the above photo.
