Ratargul Swamp Forest, Sylhet City

4.5
#1 of 16 in Things to do in Sylhet City
Hire a motor boat to explore Ratargul Swamp Forest, the only freshwater swamp forest in Bangladesh. See around 70 kinds of plants and various animals, such as monkeys and water monitors. A range of birds reside in the forest, so keep an eye out for swans, doves, water fowls, eagles, parrots, and egrets. You need permission to tour the forest without a guide, so it's best to hire a local boat and let the guide inform you about everything on offer at this evergreen forest. During monsoon season, water from hills of India floods the forest and creates the swamp, the depth of which depends on the quantity of rainfall. You can also visit the swamp when there's no rainfall, but you have to walk in clay. Ask Inspirock to suggest an itinerary and make planning a trip to Sylhet City fast, fun, and easy.

  • Ratargul Swamp Forest is a nationally beautiful tourist attraction. A river flows by its northern and western borders. In dry seasons, tourists can walk through it. In the rainy season, when the area is flooded, trunks of the trees go under water and top branches remain above the water, which gives the forest its unique look. At that time, tourists move through it by boat.
  • A great place to visit. Though winter isn't an ideal place to visit. But still last time I visited during winter, it was pretty good place.
