Puran Dhaka walks.
How does an interactive and lively tour of Old Dhaka, (Puran Dhaka), sound? Interested..? This walk is not run in the usual way, by a tour operator, but instead by a group of local architects, known collectively as The Urban Study Group. The old part of the city is a seething hive of cultural and economic activity. Hundreds of thousands of people live in its warren of twisting alleyways and narrow side streets, making a wander through the neighbourhood both a fascinating adventure and a colourful discovery.
Trekking in the Chittagong Hill Tracts.
Kewkradang is one of Bangladesh’s highest peaks at 860m above sea level so this trek is not for the faint hearted. It is a full two day trek to reach the peak & accommodation and facilities along the way are basic, but for the brave, extremely worth it to experience the best kept secret in one of the world’s most under-explored countries!
Bangladesh Ecotours is the Chittagong Hill Tracts leading adventure tour operator and given the fact there is still a fairly tight security policy in the CHT, relying on the experience of the company is highly recommended.
