Dhoronti (also spelled as Dharanti (ধরন্তি) or Dharonti) is a beautiful watery place that is a 3 hour drive from the busy Dhaka city. Around the rainy season this place is the perfect time to visit. It is located around the road between Sarail to Nasirnagar of Brahmanbaria District. Both sides of the road are flooded with water. You can wash your city junk and tiredness from there by having a quick day trip.

This place is basically a picnic spot for the party lovers. So during the afternoon it gets too much crowded at the weekends. You’ll find few boats beside the road for hourly based renting. Also you can ride on those with other people as a group to lower your cost but to taste the flavor.

This road is several miles long and both side of that area is packed with water. It doesn’t have any houses beside the road (no space left). Neither there are trees beside the roads as well. This place is infamous for hijacking when the sun gets down. The local people will forbid you to stay there after the sunset. It doesn’t matter the size of your group. They use to come with 10/15 people together to snatch things from you. So better not to wait there for the sunset. We have left this place even around at 4:30pm to avoid any odd situation.

How to go

This place is easy to access. From Dhaka you have to get down at the Sarail Bissho Road (সরাইল বিশ্ব রোড). From there you can get the CNG driven auto rickshaw that goes to Nasirnogor (নাসিরনগর) frequently. You can just get any of those. It will be around 40 Taka (may be, cause till Nasirnogor (নাসিরনগর) its 60 Taka per person). Also you can hire the CNG as your own.

From the view of water you’ll know that you have reached on your target. During the exploration you can have a seat on the bridges for a while. GPS coordinate of one of such bridges is (24° 7’24.21″N, 91° 7’59.10″E). Most common bird from this area is Common Drongo (ফিঙে). Apart from this you should see the kites are flying high over the water for its prey.

For your safety do not stay there after the sunset. Both the road and the river are risky that time.
