Boga Lake in Bandarban – April 2009


Story of Beautiful Boga Lake

After a hardcore journey, we reached near of Boga Lake. Our car stopped and our driver and guide told us that now we need to climb a hill to reach Boga Lake. It was really tough for us, because none of us had any good experience of tracking. There was no other option, so we started! It was really hard time for us, we was taking rest after each 5minutes of tracking and total average 30/45mins of tracking we reached in pick and saw the beautiful Boga Lake.

After the first sight of Boga Lake, forget the hard time of tracking. Was so pleased to see the landscape. A beautiful lake surrounded by high hills and a small village just beside the lake. When I know that we will stay in the village we just saw, felt I am in haven for one day.

When entered in the village, after saw the house we going to sleep I felt so pleasure that I can’t express.It was a dream house and dream village to live my entire life.

After a while I come out of the church and saw some people were bathing on the lake and I also joined. After bath many of us was busy in long exposures, as like before, I wasn’t interested rather I joined in chat with other. Then had dinner and finally went to bed to sleep.

After coming back from there, we went to Marma village with rest of us. After a while, when we saw we need to go down of a small hill, some of us backed in village and some of us was still going.

But we feel so sad that the Marma villagers didn’t allow us to take photographs of them. Finally we just took some photos of their home and other landscape and came back to our village.
