This is the area lying on the north eastern part of our country bordering Indian states of Tripura, Assam and Meghalaya. In the north it has got Khashia & Jayanta Hills and in the south east he Tora Hills. The whole of north east part of Bangladesh is covered with terraced tea estates, patches of tropical forest, lemon & pineapple cultivation and orange groves. Most of the tea produced in Bangladesh comes from this area. The climate of this area is one of the best in the country being temperate and cool with clean, crisp air in winter. It is moderately warm in summer, but has an annual rainfall of 5000mm, the highest in the country.

Besides the tea plantation there are many more to experience in this part. In Sylhet town, Shrine of Hazrat Shah Jalal, the 14th century sufi saint is a very important pilgrimage site for the Muslims. In the north the foot of Khasi-Jaintia hills predominantly lives all the tribal people Khasi, Tripura, Pangou & Monipuri. Of them Khasi, Tripura & Pangou people tend to shun regular contact with the outside world, venturing only occasionally from their settlements. The Monipuri are the exception. They have become artisans, jewelers, businesspeople and have entered into the general Bangladeshi community.

This area is also very important because we get much of our natural gas from here. There are the `haors’ (depressed land) where plenty of bird life including, migratory birds are visible between December and March. Srimongal, about 150 km north east of Dhaka and 75 km south of Sylhet is the tea capital of Bangladesh. This slightly hilly vast area covered by green carpet of tea leaves are one of the most picturesque sight. Occasional presence of lemon orchards and pineapple plantation and the rubber plantation makes this a perfect place for a visit. Also the tropical forests, water fall, lake all these are the attractions of this area.
