Limestone Lake of Tekerghat is located near the Tanguar Haor, so close to Indian border. Once upon a time there was a limestone quarry, but now-a-days that one is not functioning. The Tekerghat Limestone Lake (টেকেরঘাট চুনাপাথরের লেক) is minimum 18 kilometers north from the Tahirpur town.
The water of the lake is clear. You might the water of the lake would be blue. But still the water isn’t bad. This lake was created by quarrying the limestone. Exactly other side of the lake is India. People from India usually take their bath at that side. Hill of that side has large boulders of limestone, but all belongs to India.
There are few small Tila (টিলা) available in Bangladesh side, possibly 20 ft. height and artificial. You can pass few minutes on those if you like.

Kaptai Lake is a beautiful blue man-made watery lake. The size of this Lake is approximately 11000 square kilometer, which was created as a reservoir when the Kaptai dam was built during the 1960. This amazing Lake was created by flooding valleys and plain lands between numerous hills all around the Lake. Kaptai has Bangladesh's only hydro-electric project. The Kaptai Dam on the Karnaphuli River created for this purpose resulted in the Kaptai Lake. This created a charming view as forested hills and plateaus rise from beneath the beautiful Lake water.
A stretch of road connects the tourist spots of Rangamati and Kaptai. The road goes deep into the hill tracts and displays the natural beauty and wildlife of the district Rangamati. The government of Bangladesh run Tourism Corporation and many private operators offer Kaptai Lake Cruise Tours, which is worth of it. Other scenic spots are also accessible through the waterways. Cruising on the Kaptai Lake is an enjoyable way of observing the landscape as many great picnic spots, natural landmarks and historic monuments are accessible only by boats.

Upendra Sorobor (উপেন্দ্র সরোবর) is a rectangular shaped large pond that is located at the Nagarpur of Tagnail District. In English, the word 'Sorobor' means a lake. It was dug by the famous Zamindar of Nagarpur during 1381 of Bengali calendar, which is around 80 years from now. During that time the villagers needed to go far away from the home to collect water (for drinking and household works). To ease their water crisis, the generous Zamindar took initiative to dig this large water tank.
This large pond has in total 12 ghats for taking baths. The Western side's one is the biggest one and it has a false gate on there. It also has a medium sized Banyan tree on there. Lot of local visitors use to gather here during the afternoon and they use to sit under that tree.
