A waterfall is considered one of the most natural wonders of the world and there are some of the most beautiful waterfalls in Bangladesh, but Bandarban, a district located in the South West of Bangladesh and part of the Chittagong division, boasts the best waterfalls in the country. This is because Bandarban is part of the Chittagong hill tracts and is the most remote district of Bangladesh. There are lots of adventurous sites in Bandarban and the outstanding natural and exotic beauty are awesome but these waterfalls will take your breath away.
Tinap Saitar is the largest waterfall in Bangladesh. It is not for the fainthearted though. It is so remote you will have to walk around 40 kilometres to reach it and you will need to hire a guide to take you there as well. It’s not that well known amongst tourists because of the trek, but it’s a fascinating walk and once you reach the waterfall you will also see a rainbow that is always in the sunlight during daylight hours.
Amiakhum is another amazing waterfall to visit. Not just because of the rock face and mountains it flows and drops between, but also because milky coloured foam spreads all over and comes out of the stone. The Amiakhum waterfall is considered to be the most beautiful of all waterfalls in Bangladesh but be prepared to walk for five or six hours to reach it. Part of the fun is also the journey to Amiakhum itself as you will need to take a boat to get there.
Jadipai waterfall is well known for the crystal-clear waters that flow down the rockface. The location is also very quiet and calming, although it is not that difficult to reach the Jadipai waterfall. However, some parts of the forty-minute walk can be dangerous because it’s so steep so make sure you wear good sturdy footwear and use bamboo walking sticks to help you keep your balance, especially when you are close to the waterfall and the rock can get very slippery.
Naphakhum Falls is another one of the biggest waterfalls in Bangladesh and it is often referred to as the Niagra falls of Bengal. To reach Naphakhum Falls you will need to walk for around three hours, but not only will you get to see one of the most beautiful waterfalls in the world, but you will also meet some of the Marma people who live there and experience the lifestyle of these indigenous folk.
If visiting these waterfalls appeals to you then why not take a look at booking a cheap flight to Bangladesh and make your dream a reality.
