Forest Nature / Park
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. Our Sylhet City tour planner makes visiting Ratargul Swamp Forest and other Sylhet City attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.
