“Amazing Experience: Far better than Loch Ness Experience..!!!”
Review of Kaptai Lake

Kaptai Lake
Reviewed September 23, 2015

You might have heard a lot about The Loch Ness of Scotland, and might also visited that... And, I did the both too..! However, whenever I compare both of them.. I find Kaptai Lake far better and beautiful than Loch Ness or many other..!!!

Yes, it has wonderfully clear water having that is also 'home ground' of different kinds of fresh water fish..! Surrounded all over by green hills.. of different sizes, complimented with blue sky and clouds white or dark clouds. Some of the places there households of indigenous people living on the bank both sides of the lake, sometimes you find them busy in their day to day lives..!

If you are lucky you will have some wild life experience while you will be having boat journey.. you may find lizards, monitors, birds (even wild roosters), wild monkeys, etc.

To experience the lake it is best if you take a boat either from Reserve Bazar Ghat (port) or Parjatan ghat..! There are different types of boats, you could hire them for whole day or till afternoon, it would take 2,000 to 3,000 Taka.. and preferably you take the ride up to Shuvolong Bazar..! And, DO NOT forget to visit the Shuvolong Water Falls when you do so..!

Experiencing the indigenous foods cooked in bamboo pots is another great addition to your life..! Please note that you have to preorder the for the food..! And, there are two such restaurants located on two separate small islands on the way to Shuvolong.. So, you order your food in the morning and you have them on the way back..! Peda Ting Ting is the older and better one.. the other one that I established recently, somehow is not as good as Peda Ting Ting..!

If you are not a Bangladeshi, you have to have pre permission to visit this area, however its not that difficult to get the permission..! Even if it was, still it would be worth.. because, this would be one of your life time experiences..!!!

I had been thee many times & it's a place to be visited. Suitable for local visitors or any foreigner with local guide. It's not a tourist place like commons areas. Safe visit during day time return before evening. There is no hotel to be stayed or restaurant to eat! For two reasons this lake is popular- picnic spot & power supply project. Enjoy boat through water over the lake is really enjoyable but be careful as there are record of many accidents. Nothing special as there is arrangement from administration side to make this lake comfortable for the visitors. Also there hilly areas which visitors may observe.
