Batali Hill

Type: Hill / Mountain
Contributed By: Nayeem


The Batali Hill is the highest hill within the Chittagong Metropolitan area. From the peak of the Batali Hill, one can have a bird’s eye view of the city. A large number of people ascends to the top of the hill to fill their lungs with fresh air and to enjoy the breathtaking scenery of the sunset in the Bay of Bengal.

Batali Hill is the highest hill in the city of Chittagong, Bangladesh. It is located near the Tiger Pass crossing, about 1 kilometer from the center of the city, and falls under the Pahartoli Thana.

The hill is about 280 feet high. However, the hill faces threats of erosion and landslides due to illegal hill-cutting activities. In June, 2007, a massive landslide in the area surrounding Batali Hill killed at least 128 people.

Foy’s Lake, the largest man-made lake in Chittagong, is situated next to the hill. There is also an Eternal Flame (“Shikha Onirban”) commemorating the Bangladesh Liberation War martyrs.
