bandarban, shailapropat, waterfalls, bangladesh

Bangladesh has around 12 waterfalls, among those 4/5 are located at Bandarban district. Shailapropat is one of those waterfalls. But the good news is, this one is located just beside the Bandarban town. So you don't need to do any extra work to travel through mountain or something like that to view the falls.

This falls is just 4/6 kilometers apart from the Bandarban town. This is just beside the road, and its an attaractive tourist spot. Also there are several local shops at this spot, you can buy local crafts like shal, wooden crafts, and many more things from there. I have seen local girls are making cloths using "Taat"(a local sweing machine).

Shailapropat is an attraction for waterfall, which is surrounded by hills & forest. Be carefully while you go to Shailapropat - the rocky path way is very slippery. If you are not cautious there, is a good chance to sleep & make an accident. People may think that the risk may not exist at dry season, cause the rocks are dry that time. But beware about your wet foot. Cause the driping water from your feet can make the dry rock slippery once again. So be careful when you make your every single steps.

The water of the falls is really cold. No matter whatever the season is. This is possibly for the rocks. It used to make the water cold. You'll feel like heaven when you'll put your feet into the water of the falls. Local people used to have their bath at the water of the falls. Also I have seen some women who were washing their cloths at the water.

You'll find several iron made bridge at the vicinity of the falls. If you have more time you can go to the bridge and have a view of the falls from the far side. Also the authority have made a view point at the spot, you can enjoy the fall's beauty, specially when its rainy season.
