SYLHET


Sylhet is the widely hilly district in the north east of Bangladesh. A region in mainly a plain country Sylhet lies between Khasia and Jaintia Hills in the north tripura hills on the south. Forest around abounds with innumerable bird’s species. The orange grove of chhatak with humming bees adds to the fairy land aura of the region.
The Sylhet valley is formed by a beautiful, winding pair of rivers named the surma and the kushiara both of which are fed by innumerable hill streams from the north and the south. The valley has good numbers of haors which are big natural depressions during winter this haors are vast stretches of green land, but in the rainy season they turn into turbulent seas. These haors provide a sanctuary to millions of migratory birds who fly from Siberia across the Himalayas to avoid the severe cold there.
Sylhet is the foremost tea granary of the country. The tea gardens mile after mile like a green carpet spread over the slopes of the hills are a feast to the eyes of the travelers.
