The best way to get to Sunamganj from Dhaka is by bus. Most buses depart at night, so we will be leaving Dhaka at 11:00 PM.
The journey to Sunamganj takes about 8 hours, so we will arrive in Sunamganj at 7:00 AM the next morning.

The sun rose over Sunamganj, signaling the start of an exciting day. After a delicious breakfast, we hopped on a CNG to Tahirpur, a small town near Tanguar Haor. We stocked up on fresh produce, fish, meat, and mineral water for our boat trip, where a chef would be preparing our meals.

With our supplies in tow, we boarded our boat and set sail on the tranquil waters of Tanguar Haor. Our first stop was the watchtower, which offered panoramic views of the vast lake. The breathtaking landscape took our breath away, and we couldn't help but be amazed by its beauty. We took a small wooden boat ride to get a closer look at the lake, and we were even able to spot some wildlife, such as crocodiles and dolphins.

After enjoying the views from the watchtower, we went for a swim in the refreshing waters of the lake. The sun-dappled waves were a welcome respite from the heat, and we felt completely relaxed and rejuvenated. We then had lunch on board our boat, which was delicious and filling.

In the afternoon, we visited Takerghat, a fishing point in Tanguar Haor and the starting point of the India-Meghalaya border. The views from Takerghat were even more impressive than those from the watchtower, and we were able to see the Meghalayan mountains in the distance. We also visited the Limestone Lake, NILADRI Lake, and Lakmachora, which are all stunning bodies of water.

We capped off the day with a delicious dinner and a relaxing evening on our boat. We were all tired but happy after a long day of exploring, and we couldn't wait to do it all again tomorrow.

Rise and shine! The day greets us, ushering in new adventures. With our boat set to depart at 8 AM, kindly make your way aboard beforehand. Our morning commences with a hearty breakfast featuring Kichuri, Egg, and achar, ensuring we're fueled for the day ahead.

Our journey unfolds as we head towards Barikkar Tila and the enchanting Jadukata River. This river, winding through the northeastern part of India, meanders gracefully through the states of Assam and Meghalaya. Renowned for its picturesque allure, the river stands as a favored destination among tourists seeking natural beauty.

A pause for lunch rejuvenates us, preparing us for the afternoon's exploits. Our path then leads to the captivating Joynal Abedin Shimul Garden. This exquisite sanctuary boasts a mesmerizing array of flowers and plants, drawing visitors with its allure. Wander through the garden's captivating landscapes, relishing the tranquil atmosphere and soaking in the breathtaking vistas. The garden provides a haven of serenity, a refuge from the bustling urban life, where the connection with nature is profound.

As the sun begins its descent, we reluctantly bid adieu to our boat, making our way back to Tahirpur. From there, we journey onward to Sunamgonj aboard a CNG vehicle. As night sets in, a well-deserved dinner awaits, refueling us for the final leg of our adventure.

With the clock nearing 10 PM, we embark on our bus, destined for Dhaka. Our eventful sojourn draws to a close, leaving us with memories of picturesque rivers, vibrant gardens, and the joyous camaraderie of shared experiences. Until our paths cross again, these moments remain etched in our hearts.

We arrived in Dhaka at 6 AM, tired but happy after a long and exciting trip. We had explored the beautiful Tanguar Haor region, seen its stunning natural beauty, met its friendly people, and tasted its delicious food. We were already planning our next trip!

We shared our stories with our friends and family, who were all eager to hear about our adventures. We showed them photos of the places we had visited and the things we had seen. They were all amazed by the beauty of Tanguar Haor, and they couldn't wait to visit it themselves.

We had a wonderful time on our trip to Tanguar Haor, and we would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a unique and unforgettable travel experience. The region is a hidden gem, and we are glad that we had the opportunity to explore it.
