Ratargul - A hidden Marvel

Best part is rowing through the eclampsic swamp forest and experiencing the mighty view of the area from the watch tower while listening to the local folklores and folk songs from the boatman .

Beautiful Must See Location

A beautiful journey into a the swamp forest by canoe. We were led by an experienced local tour guide who was kind (and wise) enough to pack umbrellas. a truly magnificent and breathtaking place to visit.

It is a reserved wetland for the tourists. In the dry season it looks different on beauty. Highly recommended to visit.

Wonderful experience

My family with my sisters kids we visited the Ratargul Swamp Forest or Known as 'Amazon of Bangladesh'. It's a great journey by boat inside the forest as you will discover 73 species of plants. 80 percent of the forest area is covered with umbrella of the trees. But in the end, i will definitely road recommend this boat tour inside the breathtaking forest.

Ratargul Swamp Forest and Bisnakhandi Day Tour
Feb 2020
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.
tart 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 Grain 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.

An exceptional place to visit. One of the very few swamp forest in Bangladesh. It's a must place to visit for tourists. The best time for visit is rainy season from June to September. We went there at late January but still it's been amazing experience for all of us.

Calm and Tranquillity - Ratargul Swamp Forest
Jun 2019
A must-see attraction in the Region. I've enjoyed it better than the experience in the swamps in New Orleans. Some parts are so awesome that you might just stop the boat and wonder to absorb the beauty around.
