Trekking to the deep Bandarban Hill Tracts: Day One

February 2020 · 3 min read · Chattogram Division

The best tour of my life so far is the tour we went to the the deep in the mountain where we had no transport. Each four days we walk whole day and sleep at night, our water source was Waterfalls and food was only eggs, costly chicken and rice. All the village called Para along some adjective as prefix and situated on the top of hills.

We had to cross the Chimbuk Hill, one if the highest hills of Bangladesh!

Women and girls are hard workers there, I still could remember a little girl age could be 12/13 years was bringing so many Mud made Pitchers on her back from the bottom of the hill we may call Valley. It is really difficult job and their life is so tough down there.

Food arrangement should be done on previous day to make sure you don't have to starve, this is because the availability of food! Someone had to arrange the raw materials and that could be 10 miles away on foot! Even if you need little bit more smashed potatoes it won't be available during your lunch or dinner. There is no electricity or any electrical arrangement and they don't preserve any food.

Nature water for the thirsty passerby, purified naturally!

Each tribe belongs to different hills or area and they are really good people. They don't know the time factor we count as minutes, even seconds! After started our walking getting off the boat we have asked the local guide about the distance of the closest Para and he replied about half an hour, after good couple of hours still he replied half an hour!

Day One:


After reaching the Bandarban City early in the morning we had to find some food and the vehicle to reach the second destination called Thanchi. We found open roof zeep called "Chander Gari".

Our trekking and main tour started there, after getting off the "Chander Gari" we had to walk few kilometers as we couldn't find any boat due to water level was poor as we went dry season so our first trekking started early. So we had to take permission from the local authority to go to the "Remakri" area.

I was ahead of the team, most of them don't know they gonna do most tough job of their life; so far!

After half an hour trekking we found bit deep water and just jum into it! It was may and it was hot already! Soon we found a empty boat coming back and we hired it to our next destination called "Padmamukh".

Deep and Clear water to jump but food won't be available so soon! Nobody realizes! Besides, mobile network stop working soon!!

We didn't went to "Remakri" as at first we wanted to visit "Amiyakhum" and "Nafakhum" so we had to get off the boat at "Padmamukh" from here our secon trekking was started to the destination "Thuisa Para" and it takes 6/7 hours to reach there.

After starting our trekking soon we found "Padmajhiri" a beautiful place where you'd find yourself lost in between big hills both side and water till your knees! The passage is really beautiful and adventurous.
