Tanguar haor in Sunamganj, the place where beauty and mystery blend together. Tanguar haor, located in the district of Sunamganj in the north eastern part of Bangladesh is a unique wetland consists of 120 Beels of various sizes. It provides subsistence and livelihoods to more then 40,000 people l…iving in 46 villages situated in its periphery. This area is in the border of Bangladesh-India where mountains and haor lives together. This haor is an ideal place for the migratory birds also. Every winter about 200 types of migratory birds come to this haor and make their temporary habitat here. That’s why this place is unique for all types of photography like Landscape, Lifestyle and Birding. Besides the natural beauty, Tanguar Haor is one of the most remote areas of Bangladesh and not very easy to reach. In rainy season the only transport is boat but during dry season the main transport is motorcycle as it is not possible to go everywhere by boat during winter. That’s why many people of that area take motorcycle driving as profession during dry season. And the road for motorcycle ride is not in so good condition. For all these reasons the journey to Tanguar Haor is really very challenging.

From Wiki: Tanguar haor (Bengali: টাঙ্গুয়ার হাওর), (also called Tangua haor), located in the Dharmapasha and Tahirpur upazilas of Sunamganj District in Bangladesh, is a unique wetland ecosystem of national importance and has come into international focus. The area of Tanguar haor including 46 villages within the haor is about 100km2 of which 2,802.36 ha2 is wetland. It is the source of livelihood for more than 40,000 people. The Government of Bangladesh declared Tanguar haor as an Ecologically Critical Area in 1999 considering its critical condition as a result of overexploitation of its natural resources. In 2000, the hoar basin was declared a Ramsar site – wetland of international importance. With this declaration, the Government is committed to preserve its natural resources and has taken several steps for protection of this wetland. Tanguar haor plays an important role in fish production as it functions as a ‘mother fishery’ for the country.See More
