There are more than 700 rivers criss-crossing Bangladesh and mark both the physiography of the nation and the life of the people.

Total length of all rivers and their tributaries is around 24,140 km. The larger rivers serve as the main source of water for cultivation and as the principal arteries of commercial transportation. Rivers also provide fish, an important source of protein. The profusion of rivers can be divided into major networks: Jamuna, Padma, Surma - Meghna and Karnaphuli.
Rivers are important part of everyday life for communities living by those rivers. In some of Golpata Eco Tours tours you can learn more about living with rivers through Community based Toursim, where we encourage participation of local communities for a better experience of rich Bangladeshi culture.

Sylhet, at the northeastern corner, has beautiful tea plantations where one can enjoy the sights and sounds of nature and experience the mystic flavor of Sufism in the shrine of Shahjalal.
Sundarbans at the southern coast of the country is the largest mangrove forest on the planet. It is the home of mighty Royal Bengal Tigers and beautiful spotted deer. One can join the honey collector through the marshy jungles to accept the adventure of encountering man-eating tigers and at the same time photographing the serenity of the gorgeous wilderness.
