On This trail you will find few Big Waterfalls.which are amazing.And you will see some Underground deep cave filled with water and fresh water natural pool..Yeah if you want to go to 1st step of the waterfall you will have to climb and the trail is little bit Dangerous.
How to go:
To go ”Khoiya Chara” waterfall you will have to get off from the bus at ”Bar Takiya” bazaar,Merasarai on Dhaka-Chittagong Highway. Then use the ”khoiya chara” Road. it is near from bar takiya bazaar , end of Baratakiya Bypass road. 5 minute away from bar takiya.You can also take a CNG from Bartakiya. it will take 50-60 taka from Baratakiya to that Road Rail gate.Then just follow the road. after a while you will see the ”Chara”/”Jiri Path” (water streem) now follow the chara. there is a local man made footpath which is following the ”Chara”/”Jiri path” . So use the footpath. after half an hour you will see some House near the jiri path/Chara. When you see the Last village houses by Jiri path/Chara(Village is surrounded with small mountains/hills) use ur Right hand path which is going through the mountain. don’t use the Jiri path/Chara trail, its too dangerous , there is some Cave underground which is filled with water and not easy to notice it. but you can try the jiri path if you are Good at Swimming.So the trail through the mountain will take you to the 1st Waterfall. which local call ”Khoiya Chara” .if you want to see the big waterfalls step by step use the left side path of the ”khoiyachara waterfall” its little hard to climb but it will take you to the 1st step of the waterfall.( Photos are given in this post to describe the waterfall. To go there you will have to start climbing from the khoiya chara waterfall.)
Where to stay:
There is no hotel in Bar takiya Bazaar. you will have to camp with tent or you will have to go to chittagong or sitakunda for hotels.
What to eat (food):
on the trail you will find only one Small tea stall. so it will be a good idea to take some Dry food with you. or you can use a Small stove for cooking.
Tips/advise for traveler:
- Ask local for Directions.They will be happy to help. But Not too many.
- Take your own food with you and minimum 2 liter water.
- Do not go very near to the underground cave. its too deep.
- if you are a good at swimming you can swim into the natural Water pool. otherwise just avoid them.
