Images of evergreen Bangladesh from one of our travels in Lawachara National Park, Sreemangal, Sylhet division. Ashique and I were there for fieldwork few years ago, we were lucky to sync our separate work projects – mine on ecotourism and his on mental health – and do a two weeks fieldwork north of Bangladesh. We took the children with us as this was a great opportunity for them to experience wildlife in a special nature reserve. The grandparents went as well to help out while we were out in the field.
These are just a few of the images from our time in this lush forest and its surrounding villages which I posting as part of One Word Photo Challenge: Pine Nature, forests, wildlife, you have it all in Bangladesh 🙂
Lawachara National Park is a very special place. It is home to the endangered Hoolock Gibbon and is one of our favourite places to visit in Bangladesh. Easy to get to from Dhaka, with lots of options for accommodations near the forest. The Eco Cottages in particular are good. The reserve has well marked trails for hiking and exploring the forest with great opportunities to see plenty of wildlife!
