The boat was quite large and the boatman was extremely sincere.
The guide taken from Uluchhari was ‘Tiger’.
[B.D. The day we went to see the fountain, it had rained well for the previous 2/3 days, even in the middle of our trekking it had been raining for quite a long time. So the road was slippery and the fountain was fast enough. If you go in winter, you will be protected from the outbreak of rain.
We reached Kaptai bus stand at 6:40 on the way back to Dhaka, but the last bus was at 8:30. We didn’t get a bus because we were only 10 minutes late. Later I changed CNG 3 times and went to Chittagong bus stand- Dampara. From there I got on the bus to Dhaka.]
