PLACES OF INTEREST

We have made a short list of the places of interest in this region.

TEA PLANTATION

Tea is the heart of life in the Sylhet division. It produces over 55 million kg of tea annually from more than 150 tea estates spread over 40,000 hectares. You can stroll in the tea estate and wander a short way into the bushes and talk to the tea-pluckers and learn something about the processes that culminate into our morning tea.

MADHABKUNDA

Waterfall: The picturesque Madhab-Kunda waterfalls are the largest waterfall in the country. The surrounding hill forests, supporting some wildlife, are well worth the two hours northeast drive from Srimongal or 3 hours southeast drive from Sylhet. Here you may also see elephants being used to haul huge logs. There is a Parjatan Tourist spot nearby, with a restaurant, picnic area and toilet facilities.

HAORS – SUNAMGANJ

Situated below the foothills of theHimalayas, the vast wetlands, locally known as ‘haors’, attract huge flocks of migratory birds in the winter months (October- March). The Sunamganj wetland area is unspoiled and remains largely unexplored by tourists. Cruising through the shallow and clear waters is a special treat for birdwatchers and nature lovers alike. Varieties of rails, raptors, ducks, sand-pipers and others congregate in these haors of Sunamganj.

TRIBAL VILLAGES

There are 11 Khasia villages called “Punji” and several Monipuri villages called “Para” scattered among the tea plantations spreading in Srimongal and Sylhet areas. Khasia villages are usually on hilltops surrounded by betel nut trees, which is their cash crop. In the Monipuri “Para” you can see the traditional weaving. You can also buy the traditional crafts as souvenirs.

HOLY SHRINE OF HAZRAT SHAH JALAL

It is situated in the North of Sylhet city, off the airport road. The tomb of Hazrat Shah Jalal, a Sufi saint during the 14th century, is located inside the shrine complex. It is one of the biggest pilgrimage sites in the country and a fascinating place to visit. Hazrat Shah Jalal’s sword and robes are preserved within the large new mosque, but are not on display. The tomb is covered with rich brocade, and at night the surrounding places are illuminated with candles.

HOLY SHRINE OF HAZRAT SHAH PARAN

About 8 km east of Sylhet, just off the highway to Jaintiapur, is the Shrine of Shah Paran in the tinyvillageofShah Paran. It is a single- domed mosque that attracts about 2000 pilgrims a day.

TROPICAL FOREST

Lawachhera National Park:

It has the country’s largest population of critically endangered Hoolock gibbons – the subcontinents only ape species – as well as a large variety of mammals, birds and orchids.

Some 246 species of birds have been identified, which includes the blue-bearded bee-eater and the red-breasted trogon.

Satchhari National Park:

This 243-hectare park is situated in Hobiganj, 60 km southwest of Srimongol. Though less popular than Lawachhera, it has a higher diversity of plants and animals and far less human disturbance. It has seven streams – origin of the name “satchhari”, a population of hoolock gibbons, fishing cats, phayre’s langur, jungle fowl, pygmy woodpeckers and oriental pied hornbills.
