Come to a place where high rises are made of natural soil rock, makes you wonder and time will still stand. Shari-ghat and there fresh greenish blue water does not come on a bottle, no one ever need to ask are we there yet. Lalakhal, Jaintapur, Sylhet this is the place where is unlike in Bangladesh. Shari-ghat boat will take you up close to nature, face to face with cliffs and caves. Clean water, trees and Small Mountain define nature. Discover this nature will make your boat journey memorable, still today people use boat for their daily transportation. People wait for boat at the side of the river. Explore this master pieces of nature, get the flavor of natural tea will gives you power to go there close to super green. This is border area so Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) inspected that place all time. Water and wind created an image on the cliff of river. It can be taken with an easy camera shot, still and video cameras are encourage then you can take pictures and share glorious memories with your friends and family.
Lalakhal should be considered one of the best ten places in Bangladesh. First of all it’s beautiful, sound is mesmerizing. The color of water is different from others! The water is crystal clear! Small hills, greenery, gardens of coconut tree looks beautiful! I was there 6 years ago on my first job posting there. I was fall in love with scenario, awesome beautify of the nature. We wanted to bring our all friends and family members who visited my house that time and even when officials are come visit our office also there to get natural flavors. I was loved to show the wonderful beauty of nature. There is no noise road or train lines, sound of nature are incredible. The end of journey is a small village market. There are two tea gardens in this area, Lalakhal tea state and Afifa tea state. Hundreds kilometers of small mouthing with tea garden gives you amazing feeling. You may see a lot of wild life. This nature is still untouched my man. I have been to different countries but this was one of greatest I have seen. There is a observation tower from where you can experience the beauty of Lalakhal. It’s really awesome! There are some water activity like Canoe, Kayak are available. But above all the best part of the trip is lalakhal-its unique beauty, clear water, calmness, green hills and valleys! This is why I think the Lalakhal is considered to be one of the prominent places in the country.
How you will be there:
From Sylhet to Shari-ghat is almost 45 kilometers but world class road. Bus from Syshet city to Jaintapur Upazila is almost every 10 minutes. Time and money depends on what vehicle/boat you are choosing to go Sharighat Bridge. Shari-ghat is just after Darbast and before Jaintapur. There are some small boat with diesel engine are available there, best practice negotiate price with boatman at Ghat. Please be cautious that the boat terminal is not friendly for wheel chair bound or senior people. There is a nice restaurant, named ‘Nazimgor Restaurant’ which is very close to Indian border. If you have a reservation for the resort then you will get there reserve boat to travel there.
