Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Very good place to walk through the trails to observe bio diversity. If you are nature lover, you must like the forest. But take a skilled guide.

Lawachara National Park is a great spot to visit. Be prepared for a good walk in the forest. 1250 hectares, nice walking area with uneven narrow paths due to tree falls. Black monkey with long tail seen at the top of the tree. Visited Kasia village inside the park. They collect Palmnut tree leaves and prepare it for selling. Train trail is crossing the park. Entry is 30 for locals and 500 for foreigners. Don’t miss fresh coconut before leaving the park.

The forest is fine and the little local village is of interest. We hired a guide for a two hour tour which consisted of at least thirty minutes walking along a railway track and road, felt a bit cheated. Apart from a spider and lots of butterflies we saw / heard nothing,granted it was the middle of the day , the wildlife can best be seen/ heard in the morning, so bare that in mind:

Lawachhara National Park and nature reserve in Bangladesh is famous for its exceptional Scenic view. It is clean but crammed during holidays. We saw only monkey during our visit. There is a about 30.00 minutes jungle trail which can be completed even by a senior citizen. Help of a tour guide is available here. It was one of the filming sites of American Oscar winning movie “Around the World in 80 Days” and famous Bangla Movie “Amar Ache Jol”.

True natural beauty...thousands of ancient trees with chirping of birds.. Take mosquito repellent if you take your kids.

Lawachara National Park is the best studied and most visited protected area in Bangladesh. The park is located close to the town of Srimangal but within Kamalganj Upazila, Moulvibazar District in the northeast of the country. It comprises about half of the 2,740 ha West Bhanugach Reserved Forest. Lawachara National Park covers approximately 1,250 ha of semi-evergreen tropical forest. The land was declared a national park by the Bangladesh government on July 7, 1996 under the Wildlife Act of 1974.

Lawachara National Park is best known for the relative ease of seeing primates including four globally threatened species: Northern Pig-tailed Macaque, Phayre’s Leaf Monkey, Capped Langur, and the most important population in Bangladesh of Western Hoolock Gibbon, the only ape found in Bangladesh. The forest is a popular destination for nature lovers and scientists, a wide range of forest birds are present from Oriental Pied Hornbill and Kalij Pheasant down to six species of flowerpecker – Bangladesh’s smallest birds. Surveys continually find species new for the forest and several species are only known in Bangladesh from Lawachara. The micro-climate of tall forest trees, cool clean air, and lush green seems a world away from the rest of Bangladesh.

Two villages of Khashia ethnic community are located inside
the forest. The largest, “Magurchara Punji”, is inhabited by 40 households and the other, “Lawachara Punji”, has 23 households. Surrounding the NP are tea estates, and several villages including a Tipra community of 75 households. Ecotourism is rapidly developing in the area through local guest houses and guides.

The scenic view of the forest was so nice! It was clean and not over crowded, but we couldn't see any animals except one monkey. There is a small tiny jungle trail which can easily be completed by anyone (my parents did that with us too). if anyone wants can take the help of a tour guide but it didn't seem so worthy to me. If you are at Sreemangal, I would recommend this place for you to click nice pictures at least.

Nature & little vibes of tribal life are the best in here!
Due to pandemic it’s closed for many months so natural view of the place became more soothing. We went for 2 hour trekking with my 60+ years mother and surprisingly she did it very well!
You will find that famous rail line, simply beautiful! Near rail line there is also a tea stall for “Shatrong cha”. And the tribal village is after some walking towards the tributary. Besides different species of plants you’ll also find some animals, birds, insects too!
It’s overall peaceful and safe!
Please try to keep clean your around wherever you visit ❤️
On another note: weather is very gentle however you’ll experience frequent rain!

a Wonderful stroll through the forest. Some interesting facts provided by the guide. Famous Sreemangal pineapples available at the entrance. great pictures and even some entertainment from the ice cream guy who sang and performed some magic tricks for us (for a tip obviously). Well worth a visit.

This national park is not that big but still very nice to visit. Get here early to avoid loud local tourists. It seems that a guide is mandatory for foreign tourists. If possible, skip the guide, ours didn't bring any particular service to us and the park is very very safe. Furthermore the guide fee was much less at the park entrance as mentioned in our guesthouse.
Overall we saw a bunch of squirrel and two monkeys so don't expect too much from that visit.

On the way back we stopped by several tea gardens which are worth a visit as well.
