Lawachara National Park (LNP): Approx. 20 km north-east from the bungalow, situated in Srimanagal, Maulvibazaar. It is a Semi- evergreen hilly forest of West Bhanugach Reserve Forest. LNP is the home of Hoolock Gibbon—Bangladesh’s lone ape species that was once abundant in Lawachara. It is one of the last standings of the tropical rain forests that ruled the Sylhet region once upon a time.

Approx. 37 km east from the bungalow is this much larger, wilder, remoter, and far more adventurous place than LNP, situated in Chunarughat, Habiganj. This wildlife sanctuary is the home of Malayan Giant Squirrel. If lucky, one may get across the rare barking deer, fishing cat, or wild boar while walking through the jungle trail or from the watch tower! The Rema-Kalenga Wildlife Sanctuary is a part of the Tarap Hill Reserved Forest- the largest remnant of upland true natural forest in the country.

10. Shamshernagar Airfield: Situated approx. 45 km north-east from the bungalow, is the historic Shamshernagar airfield which was used as an active airbase during the second Burma Campaign of World War II by the Allied forces. Several squadrons of combat cargo as well as troop carrier groups ran their operation during the turbulent times, mainly during 1943-45. Even though BAF is holding the current airbase at the area, you can actually watch the ruins of the WWII air strip from the road side! A short journey into the history

It is one of the few protected areas being developed by the Forest Department as part of a co-managed eco- tourism project under its ‘Nishorgo’ initiative. SNP is considered to be one of the best bird watching destinations in Bangladesh where one can have the sight of resident Red Jungle Fowl, Red-headed Trogon, Oriental Pied Hornbill, Pygmy Woodpecker and many more. Among many other local animals, the chief attractions of the place are the Hoolock Gibbon (in local term, ‘Ulluk’) and

good anthropological experience to the interested tourists. 12. Humhum Waterfall and Rajkandi Forest : The place

12. Humhum Waterfall and Rajkandi Forest: The place for ultimate adventure in Sylhet through untamed jungle experience to visit a waterfall which is even more magnificent than Madhavkunda! Situated in Rajkandi forest under Kurma bit range in Moulvibazaaar, the place is around two hours drive and three hours trek away from the bungalow. Rajkandi and Humhum were hidden from public exposure even until early 2011. However, visiting this place requires a strong will power and high endurance capacity to explore the natural world. The prize of successfully completing the trek, however, is much more rewarding than the toil with a memory to remember for the rest of your life.

13. Other attractions: Among other distant attractions, there are Jaflong, the shrines of Hazrat Shahjalal (Ra) and Hazrat Shahparan (ra), Uthla (the flaming hill, and gas emitting pond near Haripur gas field) of Sylhet.
