Take lake and river cruises by sampan and country boats. Play football with tribal youths. Shop for tribal handicrafts, jewellry, handwoven cloth and more. See historical Buddhist 'Kyangs' and if lucky meet an amiable Tribal King. Situated in the far southeastern corner of Bangladesh, bordering Myanmar (Burma) the Chittagong Hilltracts are home to over a half a million indigenous peoples of 14 unique tribes. Much of the traditional lifestyle is still preserved - tribal kings, village headmen and a self-sustaining, natural lifestyle. All in a rich, still pristine foothill ecological environment. This region has only recently become accessible - with the signing of an internationally acclaimed accord between the indigenous people and the government. Truly an area with adventures and experiences to treasure. It's the best Bangladesh has on offer.

You'll stay as house guests in traditional tribal villages or quaint eco-cottages, enjoy river and lake cruises, forest walks, easy treks, handicraft shopping (or learning), bird watching, sightseeing & photography and of course just relaxing, sunbathing and most of all - absorbing the pristine atmosphere and observing the local indigenous cultures. Include indigenous cultures, village-based conservation & education projects, tribal crafts, music and dance, festivals, Buddhist and Hindu temples, pristine islands, beaches and more. These tours are available year-round, The oft-preferred season for many is the cooler and dry 'winter', from late September to early April.

Late April and May are fairly warm and humid, relief arrives when the rains begin in June, lasting up to October. The monsoon (rainy) season is a great time for touring by country boat, the hills become a green and lush paradise and the lowlands resemble 'oceans' of flooded rice plains. Each season has its own flavor and advantages. Our idea of an ideal group is five or six, large enough for fun and companionship, yet small enough to leave a small footprint. Still we're more than happy to host individuals, couples or even platoons of up to a dozen. Note that we'll only be able to accommodate smaller groups overnight in the interior villages. Larger groups will spend their nights comfortably in nearby small market towns.
