Where the mountain meets the sky || Jaflong- A divine place in the Earth.

November 2019 · 4 min read · Sylhet Division


When mountain, sky, and river come together, it creates a mesmerizing beauty. Jaflong- a tourist place in Bangladesh that holds this beauty. It's a place where we get to see the colorful rolling stones, beautiful green mountain, and crystal clear water of the river.

This is one of the tourist destinations because of the divine beauty. During the rainy season, a good amount of fountain origins from the mountain, which creates a beautiful scenario. But unfortunately, I never had the chance to visit this place during the rainy season.




This mountain called 'Meghalaya'. Actually this mountain is the border of Bangladesh. The mountains are part of India. We can only enjoy the beauty but hiking in the mountains is never possible.

The place is full of diversity. You can get to see how people are collecting rocks from the river. This is a huge business. Also, there are some rock crusher machines which create really annoying noises. But the best attraction is the crystal clear water of the river.


You can take a boat ride to explore the place. The river is huge. Also, you can go to nearby villages to see the lifestyle of the native people. There is 'Khasia Rajbari' which is a king's palace of the natives. You can get to see the architecture of them, their lifestyle and how they build their house. It's actually amazing to get close to different cultures.

Also, there's a hanging bridge in the Piyain River. It is a trans-boundary river of India and Bangladesh.




As I have said earlier, the place is so diverse you can get to explore many things at a time. You can see, a small local shop over the water. You can stop your ride there and have some snacks.




And, this view is a bonus. The river is so calm, you can see a clear reflection of the sky in the water. I will suggest you visit this place in mid-summer from March to June to get the beautiful clear sky. And, if you want to see the fountain in the mountains, you have to visit there during the rainy season, from June to August. Also, during winter it appears in different types of beauty.




Now, it's time to leave the beauty behind!

A few details about this place.

This is a popular tourist place located in the North-East part of Jaflong- Sylhet; Bangladesh. It's nearly 60km away from Sylhet city. So, you can take your private vehicle or any local transport to get there. It takes nearly two hours to reach there. So it's best if you can start your journey early in the morning.

There are different restaurants in Jaflong, where you can take your lunch. Also, there are some resorts where you can stay and enjoy the divine beauty. But if you want to reach there from Sylhet city, it's better to have a one day tour.

Also, there's a place called 'Gowainghat' which called a divine place in the earth. The mountain and river is more beautiful in that place.

Reach there, rent a boat, explore and enjoy!

*I have captured these images five years back with my iphone4. The place is actually more vibrant than my images. Also, I have missed so many things to share with you. As these are some old photos, so I even lost different photos, so what I'm sharing is just a part of the beautiful place. You will get to see a lot more things if you visit there in person. And I hope you will enjoy a lot there.


Much Love
