TANGUAR HAOR – LIFESTYLE EXPERIENCE ON A BOAT
If you are fond of large water bodies, and have a thirst for unique experiences, then Tanguar Haor should be on your bucket list.
Tanguar haor located in the Dharmapasha and Tahirpur upazilas of Sunamganj District in Bangladesh, is a unique wetland of National and international importance. It is the source of livelihood for more than 40,000 people. The Government of Bangladesh declared Tanguar haor as an Ecologically Critical Area in 1999 considering its critical condition as a result of over exploitation of its natural resources. In 2000, the hoar basin was declared a Ramsar site – wetland of international importance. With this declaration, the Government is committed to preserve its natural resources and has taken several steps for protection of this wetland.
Why should you spend a night in Tanguar haor? Besides the fact that it is breathtakingly beautiful, this tour gives you the chance of spending a night on a boat in the middle of nowhere. You will see miles and miles of nothing but water- and even if it doesn’t sound like much, it will be the experience of a lifetime. Try to pick a day with a full moon, because the glistening water in the silvery glow of the moonlight will be a surreal experience, and you will keep coming back for more.
