Type: Waterfall
Contributed By: Nayeem


Bangladesh is a land of beauty, and it is blessed with boundless natural wonders. Pukur Para Jhorna or Waterfall is just one such wonder. This country has several waterfalls scattered all around. The waterfall is located in the Bilaichhori Thana of Rangamati district. To reach the waterfall, you need to use the trekking routes from Bandarban. FYI, it is just few hundred meter from the Bandarban district’s border.

This waterfall is currently the widest waterfall from Bangladesh. It has a width of approximately 80 meters and a height of 4-6 feet on an average. During the rainy season, you will not be able to see any stones from the waterfall. The only thing visible is the cascade of water, fresh and beautiful. Some people call this place the “Niagara of Bangladesh”. If you walk alongside the stream, it takes around 40-50 minutes to reach at the bottom of the waterfall stream. Except during the rainy season, the path is in good condition, but during rainy season, it is advised to not walk that road as the slippery path is a serious life risk.

This waterfall starts from the water of Raikhong Canal and the water finally ends up in the great Kaptai Lake. Some people used to call this Raikhong River and in line with the name of the Canal/River, some people used to call this waterfall the Raikhong Waterfall. For your information, it is called Pukur Para Waterfall, because there is a village near the waterfall named Pukurpara.

Trekkers used to create a make-shift shelter at Pukur Para village and only visits the waterfall for a few hours. But if you make your trip a bit wisely, you can set few tents around the waterfall during summer or winter for nighttime camp out. There are numerous dry and clean places around the waterfall for your camping.  Just imagine sleeping beside a waterfall at night; the sound of the rushing water,  a full moon & a sky full of stars away from all the hustle and bustle of the city, absolute bliss.
