Trekking to the deep Bandarban Hill Tracts: Day Two

Trekking to the deep Bandarban Hill Tracts: Day Two

February 2020 · 5 min read · Chattogram Division

The very next day we wake up really early in the morning like 5 a.m. We had to get up and ready for the walking to the next place called "Thuisa Para" where we couldn't reach last night due to darkness.

Last night we couldn't able to to watch around and now I found the village is quite interesting and all the the home was 5 to 7 feet above the ground and we had to use a bamboo made stairs, it may be due to rainwater and the wild animals.

Beautiful House

I was sleeping whole night while my Brothers were playing cards and gossiping. I was feeling Fever actually and hill area bit colder than usual what we didn't know so it was really bad night for us. We had no pillows as there were 16 of us and each of us was unexpected guest to the little village. We thanked to our guide as he arranged food for all of us that night, otherwise we could be starving whole night after 4 hours non stop tough walking in the hill area.

I found so many Mango hanging on the Trees and they grew well on the top of the hill.

Soon we had to cross another river or I would say same river at different locations. Our path was started to be rough and tough from here. This was the first time we actually had to cross a little hill and we were feeling tired already!

Soon I found actually we were on the top of a big hill and we was just started coming down. This path was different and dangerous, one side there was a huge wall of hill and another side is deep down water flow.

Sometimes there were rocks, small and large and sometimes there were level land between hills. Soon we discovered ourselves between two hills like we found in the Padma Jhiri!

I thought we would able to fine fruits like banana or some other types but ended with a huge Fig tree and these fruits were not tasty at all, but yhe size was huge! After couple of hours trekking we were in front of a huge hill and our guide announced that we had to cross this! I still could remember it was nearly 90 degree angle! One of our mates were almost died there ( as we thought)!

Very Tough Climbing

I would never forget the beautiful moment I've seen down there! A school on the top of the hill and kids were singing our National Anthem! This is my country this is love for our motherland!

Salute

This hill was high enough to see around and we found there were some hill around would be double height!

It was time to go down a bit and that was easy and we thought we are close to our destination! But no! It was just started and soon we found a man made Mango forest with many fruits some of us tried to picked but kept their wish themselves.

Here we found a beautiful source of natural water what was most required! We took out water bottles and make it fulll beside our bellies.

Soon we found ourselves in a empty place where there were few people were working and all the trees might be cut down in the name of Zoom cultivation or if it is really Zoom Cultivation then each year they cut down trees and each year they grow back.

Soon we had to climb on another hill and walk down to another side where we found Jhiripath moreover the source of water! It was 10 am by then so we started walking at 6am and found this Jhiripath at 10am and we had to walk another hour in this Jhiripath to reach another hill to cross to a beautiful lake or river or waterfall whatever you like to say!

It was easy to climb this hill but really tough to climb down. Finally we were in that water at 11 and all of us jumped into it! We were bit relaxed by then as Thuisa Para was accross that water, of course it was on the top on the hill!

Tough Job

After an hour swimming we reached the village at 12 and my fever was 102 degree by then! After having our lunch and short break we started our journey to most amazing "Amiyakhum" one of the beautiful Waterfalls of Bangladesh!

It was hot day but I couldn't feel it due to fever! It was like obsession ! I was in a real obsession, fever 102 and I was walking miles after miles to watch the unknown, to watch the beauty of Bangladesh.

To watch the Waterfalls we had to cross a huge hill called "Debota Pahar" means God's Hill! It was the toughest job we had done in the whole tour.

It would be one of our group failures as we went to very close to "Amiyakhum" and we could listen to the sound of pouring water but we couldn't climb down as there were no support to climb down, only few grass or bamboo somewhere.

As there were no proper guide with us that time; we had to return home with empty hand.

We were sweating and Sad! We couldn’t make it!
