Highlights

  • Bandarban Hill Tract: Within the rugged hill tracts of Chittagong are several villages of tribal refugees and indigenous peoples. Meet these communities and learn about their remote lifestyles and ancient folk tales, as well as controversial struggle for independence.
  • Lake Kaptai: The placid Lake Kaptai is a slice of peace for visitors, belying its creation as a tool to displace the indigenous tribes. Cruise the lake and learn about the submerged kingdom beneath the surface.
  • Tribal Textiles: The Chakma tribes in Rangamati create tribal textiles called 'Bain' that are famed throughout the country. While at a village, observe this craft firsthand and take the opportunity to take a unique souvenir home.
