You can also experience some activities like; a nice city walk with important tourist sites, tea estates, Ratargul Swamp Forest or Bichanakandi natural tourist spot, Lalakhal and Jaflong area and authentic Sylheti local dishes.

Instead of a morning flight to Sylhet, one may take an overnight train from Dhaka on the night before and follow the rest of the travel plans accordingly. A trip to Sylhet offers quite a verities experiences.

Sylhet holds a spectacular variety of extraordinary landscapes, wildlife sanctuaries, marshy areas and vibrant lifestyles to explore. Sylhet lies in the northeastern part of Bangladesh, bordered by the Indian states of Meghalaya, Manipur and a tiny area of Tripura. It has got Khashia and Jayanta Hills in the north and the southeast of the Tora Hills. This area produces and exports a large quantity of high-quality tea, with low rolling hills carpeted by tea plantations, scattered patches of tropical forests, lemon & pineapple cultivation & orange groves and massive wetland marshes. The variety of countryside scenery inside Sylhet remains ripe for exploration.

The average rainfall in this part is higher than the rest of Bangladesh, a fact which 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.

The Holy Shrine of Hazrat Shah Jalal and Hazrat Shah Paran, the 14th-century Sufi saint, is an important pilgrimage site for the Muslims in the Sylhet town. The messianic Muslim saint is one of the earliest pioneers of Islamic culture in Bangladesh, responsible for mass conversions of Bengalis from Hinduism and Buddhism. This area has a population of Khashia, Pangou, Manipuri and Tripura ethnic communities, all of whom live in villages around the hills and practising Hinduism, Buddhism and Christianity. Tripura, Khasia & Pangou people tend to skip regular contact with the outside world, occasionally venturing from their settlements. Exceptional “Manipuri” peoples have integrated into Bangladeshi society as artisans, business people and jewellers.

Day 1: Morning flight to Sylhet and afternoon City sightseeing
According to your flight time, you will pick up from your place and transfer to the domestic airport for a flight to Sylhet. Welcome to Sylhet – the holly city. After the check-in formalities and a bit of rest, we would invite you on a city sightseeing. Today's excursion will include a visit to the holly Mausoleum of Hazrat Shah Zalal- who has brought Islam to this part of Bangladesh. Walking along with the Keane's Bridge neighbourhood and the old marketplace is interesting. In such a little place, so many things are happening simultaneously, which is fascinating to observe. Enjoy the sunset from the Keane's bridge over the Shurma River. It is nice to walk around the worker's residential colony, just on the other side of the Shurma River. Meeting friendly people is always lovely, learning their life stories can be a lesson for a lifetime. (These are just ideas of what we think you will be interested in! Please discuss with your guide what exactly you are interested to see. He has the right to make necessary adjustments on the itinerary to make the trip nicer). Overnight at the hotel (Shuktara/ Rose view/ Metro/ Nazimgarh resort) in Sylhet.   [if we shorten the city sightseeing, we may visit either Ratargul or Bichanakandi this afternoon]

Day 2: Jaflong, Tamabil and Lalakhal or Ratargul and bichanakandi
Pick an option for today:   After breakfast, start for a full day excursion around Jaflong and Tamabil. Located amidst a splendid panorama, Tamabil is a border outpost on the Sylhet – Shillong Road (55 km from Sylhet City centre). Sights of the waterfalls over the hilly zone across the border add to the charming views. Jaflong is a picturesque spot nearby amidst tea estates and the beauty of rolling stones from hills. The hardship of primitive stone collector's is a darkness behind the beauty. We should probably meet these people and listen to their daily life struggles before complaining about our lives. After lunch at a local restaurant in Jaflong, drive to Lalakhal to enjoy a scenic and refreshing country boat cruise. Drive back to Sylhet town to avail your flight/ train/ bus/ reserved vehicle to Dhaka.   Or Ratargul and bichanakandi Ratargul is the only swamp forest in the country; this virgin locale was recently discovered and is now being conserved under the forest department. Rowing through the marshy land of the forest, one can see lush green all around and exotic breeds of flora and fauna. A perfect place to seek inner peace to rejuvenate your soul with renewed vigour. It is always good to visit a forest early in the morning, leave the hotel at 7 AM for Ratargul forest. About two hours driving distance from Sylhet city centre by reserved vehicle. Enjoy beautiful boating and trekking through the swamp forest for some hours. After lunch, we will visit Bichanakandi. Drive back to Sylhet town to avail your flight/ train/ bus/ reserved vehicle to Dhaka.
