Local Guide Reviews

" Tanguar Haor is one of the most beautiful places in this country to visit this place, people need to hire engine boats or motor bikes. But, travellers who travel with the boat get the best possible view and experience. Generally, travellers need to stay one night at the boat. That night for me, would be one of the most fantastic nights of any travellers' life. Best of the place  for visit with friends and family. It's just like a dream come true everyone should visit that place, beautiful views and fresh air. " Mrityunjoy Mandal
