Sreemangal, about 75 km south of Sylhet and 150 km northeast of Dhaka, is about 4/5 hours of a pleasant train ride. A green carpet of tea leaves covers massive hilly areas 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 and relaxation.

Day 2: Lawacharra Rain Forest, bird watching in Baikka Beel and evening train to Dhaka
Your local guide will offer you a rewarding wildlife trek through the nearby Lawacharra National Park. Early morning is a good time to explore the abundant and diverse wildlife. The Lawacharra forest is one of the last remaining tropical rainforests of the country and home to many endangered and rare species; Hollock Gibbons are one of the most prominent. A few hours tract through the dense forests is heaven for birdwatchers, naturalists and adventure seekers alike. After lunch, drive to Baikka Beel – a permanent wetland and bird sanctuary. Depending on the seasons, we offer either a boat trip (Summertime: April to September) on this marshland or birdwatching (winter time: October to March) and a nature enjoying trip. It is a beautiful marshland where thousands of lilies and lotus bloom. Birdwatchers and nature lovers have begun frequenting it. An observation tower promises the visitors a good view of the beel, its residents and winter visitors. During the winter season, many migratory birds find their nesting ground at this place. Among many migratory birds, some species have found their home here for living & nesting permanently.   Please note that around 3km road just before the wetland is in lousy condition, difficult to access by sedan cars but no problem for 4X4 driven vehicle (Jeep) or even minivans. Either we have to walk three kilometres or drive by a 4 X 4 vehicle (rainy season).   Drive back to Sreemangal town to avail evening (ETD 6 PM) train to Dhaka. Upon arrival at Dhaka airport Train station, you will be picked up and transferred to your hotel.
