Camping in the Rainforest & Waking up in a Swamp


Khadimnagar National Park greets tourists with its absorbing lush green warmth just about five kilometers from the Sylhet-Jaflong Highway through the tea gardens. This evergreen rainforest is quite popular with trekkers. Ratargul is a freshwater swamp forest located in Gowainghat, Sylhet, formed by the spilling over of the Gowain river into a 200-hectare jungle basin shaded by innumerable evergreens. It is the only swamp forest located in Bangladesh.
