Reviewed By Anik_Rahman - Dhaka City, Bangladesh

There are quite a few Buddhist temple in Bandarban. Buddha Dhatu Jodi (Locally called as 'Shornomondir' which means temple of gold). It is located right in the outskirt of Bandarban town.

Tkaae prior permission before taking picture in the inside. Nice place and recommended confidently.

Nilgiri Mountains

Reviewed By Shafaet A - Dhaka, null, Bangladesh

It's an excellent location to view both sunrise and the sunset. If the sky is clear, you can get a spectacular view of the night sky. But the resort made by the army is ugly, the style of the cottages doesn't match with the location and ruins the natural beauty. Go there just to enjoy the view, don't stay in the cottages.

Nafa-khum

Reviewed By ASharmin - Dhaka City, Bangladesh

When Nafa-Khum first found, it called the Niagara Falls of Bangladesh. If anyone wish to see the natural and untouched beauty of hills, please visit the inner part of Bandarban. Nafa-Khum is true beauty of small falls. The common route is Bandarban > Thanchi > Remakri > Nafa-Khum. After remakri, you need to walk around 3/4 hours walking through jhiris and picks to reach Nafa-Khum. The best time to visit this place is October. Now April - September the authority don't give permission for visit this place considering the risk of the route. From November to February it's easy to visit this place but the beauty is not comparable with the beauty after just the rainy season.
I always prefer to visit this falls and hills just after the rainy season as I can find appropriate green and water every where at hills that time.

Keokradong

Reviewed By mahbubmorshed7bd - Dhaka City, Bangladesh

If you love to trek, you can surely try climbing Keokradong, one of the tallest hills in Bangladesh. I scaled it along with my friends from Boga Lake (which means Dragon Lake). It was fun. Take water and some snacks with you in case you feel thirsty and hungry.

It's on the way to Nilgiri, so you can stop by while going or returning from Nilgiri. If you have time, you should take a shower here which will be one of your best experience.

Rijuk Jhorna

Reviewed By Hassan T - Chittagong City, Bangladesh

I hired a guide from Ruma bazar - he took me there. Such a big falls. You need to go by boat or even you can track. You have to cross a jungle and some areas of marma and murong (locals). Its the beginning of raw bandarban.

Chimbuk Hill

Reviewed By ziaur2k - Kolkata (Calcutta), India

Chimbuk Hill / Chimbuk Pahar is the third highest hills in Bangladesh.
Chimbuk Hill is one of the highest hills in Bangladesh is one of the more familiar spots in Bandarban. It is just 26 kilometers away from Bandarban Sadar. Chimbuk hill is approximately 2500 feet high above the sea level. The road is zigzag here. It will be charming to ride in a jeep. While your jeep is moving through the various native villages, their simplicity in human expression will compel you to think about our ancestors struggle to maintain existence. They are as simple as nature.
While looking down from Chimbuk, you will have the feelings of floating over the clouds. In a sunny day, you can see the cloud shades over the hills. The huge horizon of zigzag hills seem like waves of a sea. However, you can go to the nearly situated tribal villages at Chimbuk hill. You can learn the lifestyle of the tribal people. It will be a nice experience of your life if you can do so.

Amiakhum

Reviewed By Anik_Rahman - Dhaka City, Bangladesh

Amiakhum is my second most favorite waterfall in the whole of the country. It is located deep within the hills. Roughtly a day and half walk away from Remakri town. The waterfall is basically a huge cascade that falls into a different level of the river. It is really worth it staying there overnight if you have a moon up ahead of you. It was a magical experience we had. The trail is neither the toughest nor beginner in difficulty wise. Recommended if one has passion for Waterfalls and trekking.
