Brief

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.
