Travelling Ratargul Swamp Forest
Village boys paddle into the Ratargul Swamp Forest located along the Goain river, about 26 kilometres from Sylhet in bangladesh. It is one of the few freshwater swamp forests in the world. Some call it the “Amazon of Bangladesh”. During the rainy season, the wetland is submerged in up to 10 metres of water. In winter, it almost dries up completely. IT was declared a wildlife sanctuary in 1973.
