Bandarban: Chimbuk Hill

Friday, 6th November 2009

I have heard about Chimbuk hills before. When people used to make a single day tour at Bandarban, they used to keep this place on their visiting list. I think once upon a time it was a nice place for the tourist. There is a rest house at the top of the hill, if you have proper permission, you can stay their and pass your night. The night from Chimbuk hill is really nice. The pity is, I found a tour from one of our mobile company there. That tower just cut down the beauty of the hill.

The Chimbuk hill is around 3000 ft above the sea level. Also at morning time, you can see the clouds are playing around you, they are touching your body. At afternoon you might see some clouds either. But I was there at noon, under the sun when it was at the middle of the sky. So it was hard to find any clouds there. Also it was when I was returning back form the "Nilgiri". I'll strictly forbid you to visit Chimbuk after Nilgiri. Cause you won't love Chimbuk after Nilgiri, So better visit the Chimbuk hill, and then move towards the Nilgiri.

Finally you can go to the nearly situated tribal villages at Chimbuk hill. You can learn the lifestyle of the tribal people. It will be a nice experience of your life if you can do so. Believe me, the people of Bandarban are really frank and friendly. You'll simply love them.

You can reach the Chimbuk hill using the Micro Bus, or any privately rental cars. You have to take permission from the Army or Police camp, but those are just for formalities. It will take around 1 to 1.5 hours to reach the Chimbuk hill from the town depending upon the weather.
