River Turag (তুরাগ নদী) is an upper tributary river of the Buriganga River, and flows beside the Dhaka. The condition of the river is not good during the dry season. It uses to be polluted severely, and the water seems black in most of the places with a pungent smell.
The river Turag uses to inundate it’s both bank during the rainy season. Though the river is a narrow one, but for this inundation it looks like a massive river during this time. Lot of fishermen use to catch fish from this river. But due to the pollution (from industry around) the count of fish decreasing day by day. That’s why those fishermen are struggling these days for fishing and migrating into other occupations for living.
You can go for a boat trip in that river, and also take photos.
