      Hi Shihab,
      You are lucky that you fall in love with the hills in that age. I wish if I could get back all those time of youth again.

      Please note: This is not any of our own page/site, consider it everyone’s site. I never been to Saka, I hope someday who went there will share their info here. You are welcome to share info regarding hills/island etc here, but must be authentic firsthand info. We discourage people to copy from other sites as most of the Bangladeshi site with hill info are exaggerated.

      Thanx,
      WebAdmin

      Dear Rowdro,
      Any handheld GPS will be benificial during your adventure trip. As a start you can check Garmin Etrek series GPS which are mostly below 100$ range, for advance use including working with map you might think of a mapping GPS, like Garmin GPSMAP60 series.

      I heard that some shop in IDB bhaban sells GPS (but very high price tag) in BD. Best is if you can ask any friend/relative to bring one from abroad. If you need to learn GPS then join the Banglatrek facebook group or Travelers of Bangladesh facebook group http://tb.banglatrek.org where we do voluntary GPS orientation/field trip.

      Thanks
      Rabby
