Explore Bangladesh
Bangladesh: the land of sublime grace and mellow beauties with Buddhist Monasteries, monuments, memorials, mosques, museums, parks, animals, tribals as well as longest Sea beach and mighty meandering rivers, warbling of birds in green trees and abundance of sunshine, which creates an unforgettable impression of a land of peace and fascinating beauties. In the ancient age, an Austro-Asian race first inhabited this area. Then came the Dravidians from West India and later the Aryans from central Asia to establish a small settlement. There was also an influx of Mongolians, Arabs, Persians, Turks and Afghans. Thus touristic attractions include archaeological sites, monuments, historic and modern cities with rich cultural tradition and heritage.

Climate: There are three main seasons, the dry season (November to March), which is relatively cool, sunny and dry, the pre-monsoon season (April and May), which is very hot and sunny with occasional shower and the rainy season (June to October), which is warm cloudy and wet. The overall temperature ranges from 13.5 degree Celsius in winter to 40 degree Celsius in summer months.

Tribal Life- the inhabitants of the Hill tracts (Chittagong, Rangmati and Bandarban area) are mostly tribal. Life of tribal people is extremely fascinating. Majority of them are Buddhists and the rest are Hindus, Christians, Muslims and Animists. Despite the Bondage of religion, elements of primitiveness are strongly displayed in their rites, rituals and everyday life. The tribal families are Matriarchal. The women folk are more hard working than the males and they are the main productive force. The tribal people are extremely self reliant, they grow their own food, weave their own clothes and live a simple life. Each tribe has its own dialect, distinctive dress and rites and rituals. The common feature is their way of life, which still speaks of their primitive past. "Jhoom Cultivation" on the hilltops is their main occupation. They are generally peace loving, honest and hospitable and greet tourist with a smile.

Sundarbans Forest is a single largest chunk of productive mangrove forest in the world, located in the estury of the river Ganges, spanning an area of about one million hectares, in south-west Bangladesh, and the south-eastern part of the state of West Bengal in India. The forest covers an area of 5,770 sq. kms of which 4,016 sq. kms is land and the remaining 1,756 sq.km are under water in the form of rivers, canals and creeks of widths varying from a few meters to several kilometers. Some of these are purely tidal in nature and are not connected with any source of freshwater. As most canals and creeks flow into larger rivers, which are interconnected, the network of waterways thus created makes almost every corner of the forest accessible by boat. Of the 4,016 sq.km. of land areaonl6 61 sq km is covered by bare ground, scrub, grassland or clearings.

The forest is very rich in biotic diversity and supports 330 species of plans, possibly as many as 400 species of fishes, at least 35 species of reptiles, over 270 species of birds and 42 species of mammals. This is the single largest remaining habitat of the famous Bengal tiger and Estuarine Crocodile.
