What You'll Do
  • Enjoy Ratargul Swamp Forest, a freshwater swamp forest.
  • Explore Bisnakhandi known for its charming natural wonders.
  • See how many layers of the Khasi Mountains meet at a single point.
Ratargul Swamp Forest is a freshwater swamp forest located in Gowainghat, Sylhet, Bangladesh. Enjoy the Bisnakhandi charms of high mountains, sinuous rivers, graceful waterfalls and dancing clouds.
What to Expect
Start your day early in the morning as you meet your private tour guide in your hotel lobby. Departing from Sylhet, your journey begins with a leisurely drive by picturesque rice paddies fields. After arriving at Ratargul Swamp Forest, you will board a boat to explore one of the few freshwater swamp forests in the world. The forest is naturally conserved under the Department of Forestry (Govt. of Bangladesh). The evergreen forest is situated by the River Goain and linked with the Chengir Khal canal. Most of the trees that grow here are Koroch trees. The forest goes under 20-30 feet of water during the rainy season. For the rest of the year, the water level is about 10 feet deep variously.

Continue to Bisnakhandi where many layers of the Khasi Mountain meet at a single point from both sides. Flowing from above is a high waterfall. Adding to its charm are dark clouds hugging the mountains during the rainy season. Flowing underneath towards Bholaganj is a branch of the Piyain. Along the stream, flowing from high up in the mountains, come huge boulders that are deposited and mined in Bisnakhandi. The absence of such nuisances make the rainy season the perfect time to visit the beautiful Bisnakhandi that coalesces the charms of high mountains, sinuous rivers, graceful waterfalls and dancing clouds.

At approximately 5.00 pm, you'll arrive back at your hotel in Sylhet where the tour will end.
