Sylhet City :
Nestled in the picturesque Surma Valley amidst scenic tea plantations and lush green tropical forests, greater Sylhet is a prime attraction for all tourists visiting Bangladesh . Laying between the Khasia and the Jaintia hills on the north, and the Tripura hills on the south, Sylhet breaks the monotony of the flatness of this land by a multitude of terraced tea gardens, rolling countryside and the exotic flora and fauna. Here the thick tropical forests abound with many species of wildlife, spread their aroma around the typical hearth and homes of the Mainpuri Tribal maidens famous for their dance.
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 number of haors, which are big natural depressions. During winter these haors are vast stretches of green land, but in the rainy season they turn into turbulent seas.

The forestation program in Jaflong Green Park has been started under supervision of the joint forces, ‘Jaflong Foundation’ and ‘Forest Department’. They have jointly taken up the forestation program with about 100 hectares of grabbed land. Under the forestation program, various types of trees, including hybrid Akash-moni, are being planted in the park to maintain ecological balance.Bichanakandi, the new tourist destination at the boundary of Sylhet division, is all about waterfalls and collection of stones, pebbles in the crystal-clear river water. At the lap of sky-hugging mountains lies this bouquet of nature’s incredible picturesque beauty. All the ranges of the Khasi mountain meet at a point here.
There you can get the excellent view of a high fall. Alongside this scenic spot drifts, the see through cool water flow of mountain river Piyain. This river, gushing down the mountain, brings tons of boulders with it. It is in this water you get to see the collection of rocks of various size and color. These stones are collected to be mined. During the monsoon, the area becomes greener than ever. The mountain, forest, and the waterfalls all become alive to declare nature’s generous endowment. Bichanakandi Sylhet is the cradle in a true nature lover’s paradise.
