Srimongal, about 75 km south of Sylhet and 150 km northeast of Dhaka, is the tea capital of Bangladesh. This slightly hilly massive area covered by a green carpet of tea leaves is one of the most picturesque sights. Occasionally, the presence of lemon orchards, pineapple plantations, and rubber plantations makes this a perfect place for a visit. Also, the tropical forests, wildlife, bird sanctuaries, waterfall and lakes are the attractions to keep you busy every day. This is a perfect holiday destination to enjoy nature and tranquillity.
The average rainfall in this part is higher than the rest of Bangladesh, a fact that the British tea planters realized in the 18th century and started to cultivate tea in this part.
The area is temperate and cool with clean, crisp, fresh air in winter and is moderately warm in summer but has an annual rainfall of 5000mm, the highest in the country.

Amazing trip in Dhaka and Bangladesh countryside
Feb 2019 • Couples
We stayed two days in Dhaka, visiting several interesting places. We saw the old market place with all the spices, vegetables, fruits, seafood and all kind of goods. We visit the harbor, peoples homes and having food in local restaurants.
We also took a ride in a ricksha, exciting in this hectic and busy town. One of the days was also Mother language day and we where interviewed by the local TV.
It was the first time in my life I visit a town like this, for me it was a new world I didn’t exist.
We took the train to northeast part of Bangladesh, people sitting on the roofs and in the front of the train. I have just seen this on TV before. Amazing to see!!!!!!!
We were visiting a tea plantation and a nationalpark. Everywhere we had very skilled guides taking care of us. The whole journey was carried out by Royal Bengal Tours and I can really recommend this company, it was an amazing trip, Thank you Mr Jewel and Robin taking good care of us.
