A moon story called Darjeeling.
I have been buying a hill for a long time. But I don't know who sells the hill. If I had seen him, I would not have stopped for the price. I have a river of my own, I would use it instead of the mountain. Like Sunil Babu, I also have a hobby of mountain watching. So I walked out to see Kanchenjunga in the blue sky of Sunil Babu.
Extensively tired everyone around North Sikkim. The plan was to go to Changu Lake the next day No one else is interested in this tyranny. So the next day I slept soundly at night with a plan to back Siliguri. I woke up in the morning and looked quite clean. Due to urgent work, 3 people left for Bangladesh in the morning to an end with a tired body and a fresh mind. 😎
Visit to Sikkim and Darjeeling and detailed expenses.
I visited Sikkim and Darjeeling on September 13. In a previous post many people wanted to know about the cost. Here I will talk about the cost. If you want to see the previous detailed posts-
We had a team of 6 people. Trains from Dhaka to Panchagarh cost Tk 550 per person. Bus stand from Panchagarh railway station 60 rupees. After having breakfast of 240 rupees, I reached Banglabandha by renting a bus for 60 rupees per person. From where the bus stops, take an auto to the immigration office for 60 rupees. Immigration, Speed Money, Indian Immigration and Customs together go to 2050. By the time we crossed the border, our total cost was ৬ 6910 or about ৯ 990 per person.
There, Majumdar did not buy rupee at Rs 83.7 for 100 rupees and Rs 80.5 for 1 dollar.
Then I went to Phulbari with two auto reserves. At that time there was a shared auto up to the Venus turn. We don't have to take a car directly to SNT for Rs 300 to save time. There are 6 forms for taking Sikkim Inner Line Permit at 35 rupees. All in all, I got ILP in 30 minutes. Then I had lunch in the canteen of SNT for 1010 rupees. By 3.30 pm, the bus ticket was over. I fixed the shared jeep, but as it would take a long time to take 3 more people, I reserved 10 seats and left for Sikkim. The total fare of the jeep was 2500 rupees. I drank tea on the way for 60 rupees. Parking at Rangpo checkpost was 20 rupees. Then I went to MG Marg in this jeep with extra 400 rupees. They charge 20 rupees per person from the taxi stand, but then at 9.30 pm, so I was not sure if I would get a taxi, so I was forced to agree to so much money.
After searching for a while, I got a hotel and got two rooms for 2100 rupees. Hotel Tourist Inn, it is in the middle of MG Marg. More cost in the on-season. One room had a beautiful mountain view. And Geezer, WiFi was everything. Then I had dinner with cows, 60 rupees in total.
Total cost of the first day (in rupees): Rs. 5205 or Rs. 644 per person.
I got up in the morning and had breakfast with puri vegetables, 300 rupees. I made a photocopy of the permit for 30 rupees and fixed the next day's North Sikkim package at Altitude Agency. A package of 6 people for 12,000 rupees, accommodation, 4 meals, transport were all in it. Later, with 2600 rupees, zero point is not added. Passport, visa, photo, ILP photocopy of everything had to be submitted in 3 copies for the package.
Then I walked to the ropeway. With 620 rupees for 6 people, I took a taxi to Roomtech Monastery in 10 minutes with great experience. I fix the big car with 6 seats for the rest of the day at 1600 rupees. The cost of food and parking at Roomtech Monastery is 230 + 30. And 60 rupees for a ticket. From there I went back to Aslam Hotel and ate chicken biryani for 160 rupees. Dinner at night was 750 rupees. I paid Rs. 4200 for two days rent of the hotel on the same day. The total cost of the second day was: 9000 rupees or 1264 rupees per person.
The next morning I went to the agency after having breakfast for 480 rupees. They took a taxi to the North Sikkim stand. I spend 120 rupees for cold drinks on the way. The bathroom and light snacks at Seven Sisters Falls cost a total of Rs 330. On the way there was a lunch package. I reached Lachung in the evening. There was package tea at the hotel. Not everyone with extra Maggie noodles, for 60 rupees. I also calculated the total package of Rs 14,600 within this day. Then the total cost of the third day: 15960 or 2262 rupees per person.
On the morning of the fourth day we left for Yamthang Valley and Zero Point with breakfast of the package. At Zero Point, Maggie goes for Rs 510 for breakfast including noodles and gram. Then come back. After lunch of the package at noon, we left for Gangtok. I have breakfast of 300 rupees on the way. Back in Gangtok, I stayed at the same hotel for 2100 rupees. After seeing that I have money in hand, I went to Domino's Pizza and ate a medium pizza + extra add-on per person and paid the bill of Rs. 2160. Our two pizzas are wasted here, this is because we have no idea how much to eat. However, the cost of the fourth day: 5060 or 625 rupees per person.
Our total cost in Sikkim was: 744 + 1284 + 2272 + 625 or 5035 rupees per person or 6010 rupees. If you just calculate Sikkim - 990 + 8010 + 300 + 990 = 7290 rupees to visit Sikkim. However, we have spent much more than we need in many places. It was possible to reduce the cost by at least 500-600 rupees.
The next morning 3 people left for Bangladesh due to emergency work. And 4 of us had breakfast for 220 rupees and went to the taxi stand of Darjeeling with a taxi fare of 100 rupees. I took 4 seats for Rs. 250 and left for Darjeeling for Rs. I have a light breakfast of 80 rupees on the way. Arriving in Darjeeling, I booked a room at Hotel Seven C for Rs. 1500 including tax. With a very nice room and great views, this room costs about 3 times the season. As Darjeeling is in West Bengal, almost all the hotels here have extra tax. Then for dinner at a Muslim hotel for 330 rupees, I don't eat rice with cows. I got up in the morning, had breakfast of Rs. 200 and took a taxi at night. I decide to pay 1500 rupees to show all the spots (10, except the rock garden) throughout the day. So at the beginning I went to the tea garden. There I rented a dress for 50 rupees per person and took pictures. Then we went to see Tenzing Rock, St. Joseph's College and went to Tiger Hill. There was an entry fee of Rs 200 for 4 people. Then I came back to Batasia Loop with an entry fee of 60 rupees. After visiting the Ghum Monastery, lunch with 300 rupees is not good. Then I went to Siliguri by shared taxi for 150 rupees per person. There I rented an auto for 100 rupees and went to Venus Junction and got up at the hotel. The room for 4 people was 1000 rupees. I don't eat at a Muslim hotel for 360 rupees a night. There was also tea and chat with 20 rupees.
Cost of 5th and 6th day: Rs. 790 or Rs. 1950 per person.
On the seventh day, it was time to return home after shopping in the morning. The cost of going to the big market, light snacks, panipuri was 220 rupees. After that I had lunch at Rs. 280 and rented an auto for Rs. 200 and left for the border. Spending Rs 120 on light cold drinks at the border does not convert money into rupees from the rest

This post is not for Bangladesh but for Burmese. I will try to explain why they are so irritated according to their ideas.
Those who have visited St. Martin's Island know how beautiful and important this island is. The Burmese look at the island is nothing new.Burma has demanded that the island be handed over to them while the maritime dispute is being debated in the International Court of Justice. But they could not reason. Eventually they demanded that the island be dismantled and half be given to Bangladesh under Burma and the other half. That demand did not come in their favor.Why do they have so many headaches with this small island The main reason for this is that a huge part of the sea is lost only because of this island. The question may be why Keep an eye on the sea map. You will see that St. Martin's Island is a deep part of the sea separated from the mainland of Bangladesh. Exclude the island. Now you see that the coast of Burma is on the other side of the estuary where the mainland ends in Teknaf, Bangladesh. But the island is less than 1 nautical mile from the coast of Burma, despite no connection to the territory of Bangladesh from the estuary to St. Martin due to the island being under Bangladesh. This means that even though the Burmese Sea begins on this long route from Teknaf to St. Martin, Burma has been deprived of 12 nautical miles of exclusive sea area as a rule. Even after crossing St. Martin's Island, the way the sea border has been drawn has deprived a certain part of Burma's exclusive border of 12 nautical miles.Since the sea court deals with the determination of sea boundaries in two ways. One is on the basis of equality and the other on the basis of fairness. Looking at the position of Bangladesh, our sea is facing south from the land of the country. But looking from the position of Burma, their sea is facing west from their territory. As a result, the claims of these two countries have crossed each other. If Bangladesh is given to the south-facing Purta, then in the case of Burma, the sea level falls from the coast to less than 12 nautical miles. The calculation of 200 nautical miles is a long way off. Again, if Burma is given a westward purata, the border of Bangladesh will be less than 100 nautical miles. That is why Bangladesh appeals for a solution on the basis of fairness. Burma appeals for it to be equidistant. Our situation would have been worse if it had been according to the equidistance.Meanwhile, the court considered St. Martin's Island as the last part of Bangladesh's territory. As a result, the maritime boundaries of Bangladesh have been calculated starting from St. Martin. Although the island is small, Burma has lost much of its coastline. If you look at the picture below, you will understand that despite the red arrow in the marked area, the sea boundary is not more than 1-2 nautical miles. Only this island has changed everything. This is why Burma has lost a huge chunk as the island is far from Bangladesh and in the belly of Burma.However, the discussion may not be understood by many. I tried as hard as I could to explain. But I will write more details when I have time. Now it is for this island that Bangladesh has to make the navy the strongest. If we can't hold the upper hand in the Navy, we will suffer huge losses. The reason is that if there is ever a conflict between Burma and Bangladesh, only the Navy will be needed to protect the island. There is no need to move the army here. The role of the Air Force and here is limited.With all these things in mind, two to four navy ships of Bangladesh are always deployed on this island.Bangladesh knows how important this island is. At the same time, Burma is well aware that because of a small island, a large part of their sea is blocked by 1-2 nautical miles.Bangladesh should make the Navy stronger. According to our needs, the Navy needs more than any other force at sea. The Navy will be able to stabilize our economic progress and counter the maritime threat. And because of the location, our main threat is this sea.

The picture here is a rocky city. It's nice to see this city, and it's a very nice place in Aceh Pasho, and here's a beautiful rock next to the town of Car. Locket Castle from the huge rock Karlovy Vary in the Locket town of Karlovarsky Kraj in the Czech Republic. About 12 km away is a 12th century Gothic style castle.
It is surrounded on three sides by the river Ohi. Once known as the "impregnable fortress of Bohemia", it is one of the oldest and most valuable historical stone forts in the Czech lands due to its thick walls. It has been run by the Locket Castle Foundation since 1993 and is preserved today as a museum and national monument.
Due to the rocky location, the locate, first known as Stein-Elbogen, was founded in Vuenburg in 850, belonging to the Bavarian dual religion with which the entire Elbogen district lasted until the twelfth centThe first written mention of the locket as a city comes from a 1234 deed when the first known royal locket theft was recorded. According to archeological investigations, the foundation of the stone fort was built in the third quarter of the twelfth century, during the reign of Pemessel Otacar I, by Czech Prince Vladistav I, then by the Czech King Vladislas II of Bohemia, or by a minister named Emperor Friedrich I. Barbarossa.

Peaceful coexistence of mosques and temples in the same courtyard in Lalmonirhat for more than 100 years, not just for a day or two, but in the neighboring countries where religious riots are currently rampant.
Mosques and temples are in the same courtyard, prayers are being offered on time and worship is being organized as per the rules. No one is interfering in anyone's religious practice.
This rare example of communal harmony is set in the old market of Lalmonirhat city. Durga Puja has been performed in this temple since 1838. The mosque was established in the same courtyard in 1900. Since then, peaceful coexistence of Hindu-Muslim communities has been going on there.
This example of religious harmony is located in Kalibari in the border town of Lalmonirhat district. The Kalibari Puran Bazar Jame Mosque and the Kalibari Central Temple are in the same courtyard. There are two communities, Hindus and Muslims, who are freely performing their religious rites.
The sound instruments of the temple are kept off during the prayers in the mosque. As soon as the prayers are over, the ritual of worship begins. At the end of the prayers, the worshipers quickly leave the mosque and give opportunities to the worshipers. That is the rule here. There has never been any unrest. At the same time, many visitors from far and wide gather there to see this wonderful view of the temple-mosque coexistence. Why only Bangladesh, this is a very rare example in the context of religious extremism in this subcontinent. Eid-puja has been observed there for more than 100 years, not just for a day or two.

Debotakhum is located in Roangchhari upazila of Bandarban district. Natural Bandarban is said to be the paradise of Khum and the crown of excellence of this kingdom will undoubtedly go to Devatakhum. According to the locals, this khum is about 50-60 feet deep and 600 feet long which is much bigger than Velakhum and much more wild. If you want to go to Devtakhum, first you have to go from Roangchhari to Kachhapatli Army Camp and trek to Shilbandha Para (Liragaon) with permission. Of course, a strong bamboo valve should be made from the sealed area. Going to Shilbandha, you have to cross Pong Su Aung Khum first. Devatakhum begins after Pong Su Aung Khum is crossed. To the locals it is Sonakhum. Many also call it Thanchikhum in Marma language.
Devatakhum's trail is as beautiful as it is terrifying. In the rainy season, as the trail jhiri / mountain will catch your eye, there is a risk of slipping on the slippery rocky path and falling into great danger step by step. No noise, out of network. Silent silence all around, like a haunted environment. The environment will feel more haunted by the sound of boiling water. The path has gone through the middle of two huge mountains which you have to give by raft. You can enjoy nature up close here. As if to merge with nature. The way to go will tell you - how beautiful the way to heaven can be. Impossible kind of adventure, perfect deity to frighten the mind. Trekking, Adventure, Risk, Vela Kayaking is a combo package of everything. Absolutely outside the network, a different environment. All around is quiet. There will be the sound of water gushing from above, the sound of their own raft and the echo of your words! The surroundings are so spooky and quiet that it will really give you a feeling of real adventure. This khum (hole / where water accumulates) in the middle of two big hills is very dark on the inside. Sunlight is very narrow. The way to Devtakhum Bandarban is the first place to go from anywhere in Bangladesh. Things to keep in mind Go to Kachpatali and report to the army camp with a guide. Two photocopies of National Identity Card / Passport must be kept It is better to tell the guide in advance about the raft to go around Devtakhum.
There will be problems in the network Only Robi / Airtel network will be available in Kachpatali !! But on the wayfrom there to Khum you will be completely out of the network. If you don't have trekking with you, buy it. It will cost 120-140 rupees. You will find it in Bandarban. On the way to Devtakhum you will find a fountain called Shilbandha Jharna. Be sure to check out the fountain on the way.
The real beauty of Khum can be seen in the rainy season. However, trekking after the Shilbandha waterfall is very challenging because the waterway is very slippery. So it is better to be mentally prepared in advance. It is better for new trekkers to avoid the rainy season because its trail look can be terrible for you in the rainy season.
