Ratargul Swamp Forest, Sylhet City

4.5
#1 of 14 in Things to do in Sylhet City
Hire a motor boat to explore Ratargul Swamp Forest, the only freshwater swamp forest in Bangladesh. See around 70 kinds of plants and various animals, such as monkeys and water monitors. A range of birds reside in the forest, so keep an eye out for swans, doves, water fowls, eagles, parrots, and egrets. You need permission to tour the forest without a guide, so it's best to hire a local boat and let the guide inform you about everything on offer at this evergreen forest. During monsoon season, water from hills of India floods the forest and creates the swamp, the depth of which depends on the quantity of rainfall. You can also visit the swamp when there's no rainfall, but you have to walk in clay. Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Sylhet City fast, fun, and easy.

  • Like in a fairy tale, mandrovye huge trees growing out of the water. Local gandolery with a cheerful song trying to artistry to earn baksheesh. If suddenly you fills in Sylhet, spend the day and the machine (still in watch not on that), but always with a guide are familiar with the terrain and Bengali, as English is not in use.
