It is located in the main town of Madaripur District. Most of the major districts are established around a river. Madaripur is not alike from those. This simple but beautiful district is found around the river “Arial Khan”. Both of the banks are slapped by the almost overflowing water from the river. This river meandered the district all around and where ever you visit the district, you’ll find the river or a branch of the river.
“Arial Khan” is originated from the River Padma, and flowed through several southern districts from Bangladesh. After crossing Ferry from “Mawa” you have to cross the “Arial Khan” Bridge to connect with southern portion of the country. Also, just near from the district Madaripur, there is a Ferry over “Arial Khan” to connect with another district Sariatpur.

In Bangladesh, the Brahmaputra (ব্রহ্মপুত্র) river is joined by the Teesta (তিস্তা) river (or Tista), one of its largest tributaries. Below the Tista, the Brahmaputra splits into two distributary branches. The western branch, which contains the majority of the river's flow, continues due south as the Jamuna to merge with the lower Ganges called as Padma river. The eastern branch formerly the larger, but now much smaller is called the lower or old Brahmaputra.
Mymensingh (ময়মনসিংহ) district stands just beside the old Brahmaputra river. It curves southeast to join the Meghna River near Dhaka. The Padma and Meghna converge near Chandpur and flow out into the Bay of Bengal. This final part of the river is called Meghna.
The Brahmaputra enters the plains of Bangladesh after turning south around the Garo Hills below Dhuburi, India. After flowing past Chilmari, Bangladesh, it is joined on its right bank by the Tista river and then follows a 150 miles (240km) course due south as the Jamuna river. South of Gaibandha, the Old Brahmaputra leaves the left bank of the main stream and flows past Jamalpur and Mymensingh to join the Meghna river at Bhairab Bazar.
There are lot of bridges over this river at several districts. Near the Mymensingh town, you'll find two bridges. One is for the road transports, and other one is only for railway service. From one bridge other one can be seen and a traveler can enjoy the whole view of river while walking through a passage just beside the river.)  => Array ( [name] => Karotoya River [post_id] => 1149 [post_link] => http://offroadbangladesh.com/places/karotoya-nodi/ [thumb_link] => http://offroadbangladesh.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/BD_Korotoa_River-300x225.jpg [post_content] => Karatoya River (also spelt Korotoa) (Bengali: করতোয়া নদী), a small stream in Rajshahi Division of Bangladesh, was once a large and sacred river. A channel of it presently flows by the ancient ruins of Mahasthangarh (or Pundranagara, ancient capital of Pundravardhana) in Bogra District. The Karatoya mahatmya bears testimony to its past greatness. In the Mahabharata it is mentioned that a visit to the Karatoya after three days’ fast produces the same merit as an aswamedha (horse killing) sacrifice. Another ancient city, Sravasti, may have been located on the banks of the Karatoya, north of Mahasthangarh. However, there is a controversy about the possible location of Sravasti. The Karatoya, known as Phuljhur rises in the Baikunthapur jungles in the extreme north-west of Jalpaiguri district (West Bengal, India) and forms for some distance the boundary between Dinajpur and Rangpur districts. It, then, meanders through Rangpur and Bogra. In the south of Bogra district, it receives the Halhalia and the united stream is then known as Phuljhur. It leaves Bogra at Chanda kona and flowing in a southerly direction past Raiganj and Shujapur is, as already mentioned, joined by lchhamati at Nalka. The Phuljhur then flows south past the important village of Ullapara, a few miles below which it joins the Hurasagar at Narnia after a course of about 64 kilometres (40 mi) in this district. After this junction, it takes the name of Hurasagar and passing close by Shazadpur and Hera joins the Jamuna near Bera. The Karatoya is mentioned in the Puranas and had a high repute for sanctity. It was the eastern boundary of the old kingdom of Paundravardhana, the country of the Paundras which it separated from Kamrupa. It is shown in Van Den Brouk's map of Bengal (C, 1660) as flowing into the Ganges and in fact. before the destructive floods of 1787 it brought down to the Atrai and to the Ganges a great volume of Teesta water. Since the main stream of the Teesta was dirverted to the east in 1787, the Karatoya and the Phuljhur have gradually silted up. and they are at the present day rivers of minor importance. One channel, which joins the Baral, 48 kilometres (30 mi) east of Pabna. is still called indifferently the Buri Teesta or old Teesta and the Karto or Karatoya. Traces of an old channel, for which the name of the Karatoya is claimed, are also pointed out in the Chatmohar thana, where it appears to have been obliterated by the Baral. )  => Array ( [name] => River Dhepa [post_id] => 7575 [post_link] => http://offroadbangladesh.com/places/river-dhepa/ [thumb_link] => http://offroadbangladesh.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/River-Dhepa1-300x240.jpg [post_content] =>
River Dhepa is in north Bengal; more precisely it is near to the famous "Kantaji Temple" of Dinajpur. River Dhepa is originated from the river Atrai, and then it falls at the river Punarbhaba. This is a shallow river, and the average depth of the river was around 2-4 feet. The length of the river is around 40 kilometer.
The river is itself beautiful. The two banks of the river make it more beautiful due to the various kinds of crops fields. Main crop field is corn, but there are others like paddy, and some vegetable fields.
The water of the river is not muddy, it’s clear. Due to the shallowness of the river, you can easily see the bottom of the river easily. Also there are some very small mound of soil is visible throughout the whole river. Some mound contains green plants.
Another beauty of the river is, the nest of the bird "Kingfisher" at the bank of the river. There are some places where the banks are too high. At the soil, the kingfisher birds made their nest. It’s a lovely scene. They are not only gorgeous to see, but also exciting when they are about to catch a fish from the water.)  => Array ( [name] => River Bongshi [post_id] => 7563 [post_link] => http://offroadbangladesh.com/places/river-bongshi/ [thumb_link] => http://offroadbangladesh.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/River-Bongshi1-300x240.jpg [post_content] =>
A few kilometers west from the Dhamrai Bazar, there is a river beside the road which is called "Bongshi". It is almost covered by the deadly hyacinths. There is no flow at the river, and at your first look, you'll feel like it as a canal.
The color of the water is kind of blackish. It can be due to the hyacinth, or due to the waste dumping from the factories nearby. Whatever the case is, you should not show any audacity to touch the water. The authority haven’t take any steps to keep the rivers (like Bongshi) alive.
