Nature at its best..

Lalakhal is blessed by natural beauty. Both the side of the river are eye catching. The hills, sky and water these 3 combination make you feel haven.

The river is not much deep. The water has a variety of colors blue, green and clear water at different points. Lalakhal is a place to visit... More

The specialty of this lake is the color of its water. Lalakhal is a must visit place in Sylhet, if you love natural views and boat riding. Go directly to Nazimgarh restaurant near to border and hire a boat to experience this wonderful boat journey. No need to rent from restaurant. Gwainghat is cheaper. Food at restaurant is good. But...

It was just amazing. That experience can not be expressed within words. One can enjoy boat-ride,tea garden & amazing view of the mountain. That place is easily accessible . So anyone can visit the place with friends & family.

Please refer to the photo. I didn't know this was coming. We took a boat ride from the Shari river and took us 40 minutes to reach Lalakhal. It was completely an OMG moment. Water was turquoise and not so deep. Was frsh water. The inhabitants nearby were working waving us friendly byes. Definitely a must visit!

Lalakhal is kind of situated on the opposite side of where most of the other tourist attractions are. Thus for this reason it gets less visitors then it really should. You can hire local boats for BDT 400-500 and roam around in this lake. The specialty of this lake is the color of its water. Especially in the winter, the... More
