How to go

There are several ways to reach at Bandarban. The best available bus service is Saudia, S. Alam, Shyamoly, Unique, Dolphin etc. The cost is around 650 taka per person. It will take around 9-10 hours to reach at the town from Dhaka.

The other options to go to Bandarban includes taking a train to Chittagong or fly to Chittagong or take an air conditioned bus to Chittagong and from there transfer to Bandarban. It is around 2-3 hours’ drive from Chittagong to Bandarban. But I’ll suggest you the direct Dhaka-Bandarban Bus. This will be much easier.

From Bandarban Sadar to Alikodom upazilla it is 70 kilometers distance. So you can go Alikodom Cave tourist spot by jeep/chandergari or private vehicle. Or you can use Dhaka – cox’s bazar route as well.

First you have to reach Chokoria. You can go Chokoria by Bus from Chittagong. From Chokoria one can reserve a Chandergari up to Alikodom or use the local service. From Alikodom Bazar/ Panbibi Bazar you need to start the trek. It would be 1 to 2 hour trek. Most of the trek is easy nature with scenic beauty of river and hills with green field. Last few minutes the trail will pass through difficult terrains and you need to climb few places through tiny crack on the hills.
