After the establishment of the wildlife sanctuary on 4 September 1972,
it covered an area of 1,019,375 rai (163,100 hectares). The wildlife
sanctuary was then expanded twice, first on 21 May 1986 to 1,609,150
rai (257,500 hectares), an increase of 589,775 rai (94,400 hectares)
and on 30 December 1992 to 1,737,587 rai (278,000 hectares) an
increase of 718,212 rai (114,900 hectares). Until 1976 there were
Karen villages within the wildlife sanctuary. Today the wildlife
sanctuary no longer has any known human population living in the area.
Some Karen villages were moved in 1976 from the southernmost area to
Ban Rai District
