Khagrachhari: Resung Waterfall

Saturday, 31st July 2010

Resang/resung/rechong/reassang whatever you say, its another beautiful waterfall from Bangladesh, and this time its from Khagrachhari district. Not too many people visit this district for refreshment. I don't know why. This waterfall(jhorna) is just around 10-12 kilometer apart from the main town.

You have several options for reaching the waterfall from the Khagrachhari town. There are lots of public bus used to leave from the bus terminal for Chittagong and Feni. You can take any one of those. It will be only 15 taka bus fair for each person. Also you can take your own vehicle, or hire CNG auto rickshaw. Hiring any private vehicle will be costly from my perspective.

Beside the highway, you can find a signboard which says where is the waterfall. From the highway, its 2.1 kilometer walking distance. But if you have your own vehicle, you can use it. But I'll suggest you to use your feet. There are numerous number of hills around the path and being rainy season, the environment is enchantingly green. Also when you'll reach at the fall after walking, you'll feel more adventurous like I found.

There are several valleys around the waterfall, you can enjoy those beauties too. To get near to the Resung waterfall, local authority made a stair for the visitors. It was rainy season, and the amount of water flowing from the waterfall was uncountable. I'll suggest you to visit the waterfall during rainy season.

After falling the water from the top, its just sliding over the rocks. It can lured you to slid your posterior over the greasy rocks. Also you can be tempted to get near at the bottom of the fall. But my friend, its just calling the death yourself. Don't even think about this at rainy season. Even not at any season. I was got slipped twice over the rock. So don't get yourself in danger. Have a nice trip.
