Himchori eco park - Cox's Bazar

Himchori (or Himchhori) is an eco park near the Cox's Bazar. During the visit of Cox's Bazar lot of tourists use to pay a visit there during the afternoon as it is very near. I have visited the Cox's Bazar lots of times before but I never felt any interest to visit the Himchori. I don't know why the place never attracted me. That place has a so called waterfall with a very narrow stream. Probably people want to go there to see that.

Himchori is just around 5 kilometers apart from the main town. You can reach at that place by any kind of vehicles. To enter the premise you'd have to buy tickets which was around 20 Taka (now may be 30/40 Taka). Instead of the tiny waterfall I love the scenic beauty from the top of the eco park. Once you climb to the top you'd be able to see the ocean from there. It would be a good idea to watch the sunset from there (if possible). I think the opening and closing time of the Himchori park is 10am to 5pm. We've visited that place on our way to Inani beach. So we didn't stay there for longer.

Being near form the main town it is very easy to go to Himchori eco park. You can go there using a rickshaw, battery driven vehicle, or a rented car. It is only five kilometer from the town. The marine drive road is very attractive as one side is the hills and other side is the open ocean. On your way to Himchori you'd enjoy the road journey.
