General Information

Additional information:
Shusong Durgapur of Birishiri is located at Netrokona district about 200 km north from Dhaka. It’s not only blessed by charismatic natural beauty, is also reach in ethnic culture as there are many ethnic groups like – Hajong, Garo, Achik and Mandi etc lives here. Many people around the world come here to learn the ethnic culture and livings.

The main attraction of Birishiri is the ceramic hill of Durgapur and the picturesque landscape along the Shomeshwari River. Except the rainy season it’s hard to find any water in the river and that’s why the river changes its landscape color with the seasons. There is also an ethnic museum at Birishiri. It’s a must place to visit while you are in Birishiri.


How to go:
Birishiri is a remote place as it is situated at the Bangladesh India border. As a result all modes of transportation aren’t available here. So the best way to get in here is by road from Dhaka. You can find direct bus to Birishiri from Mohakhali bus stand at Dhaka. It will take 7 hours to get there and last half an hour may get bumpy as the last 30 km road is not well constructed. When you are there you can go around the town by rickshaws. In fact it is advised to visit the tourists spot in rickshaws as the pullers know all the places very well.For us,It took almost 7 hours to reach YMCA Guest house by microbus.

There is two way to get yourself accommodate. One is you can camp on the hills if you come here in a group. And the other way is to book rooms of YMCA rest house.

What to eat (food):

Tips/advise for traveler:
Rickshaws and boats are only means of transport.We have walked a lot because of broken and muddy roads.You may carry your food as there are no hotel or resturant out there.Use soft shoes.Don’t forget to hire a local guide and be careful while bargaining with guide and rickshaw pullers.Take fresh water and umbrellas with you.

    Some days ago, I went to Birishiri with some of my friends. The place is exceptional with it’s exquisite beauty and tradition.

    The Shushong river, China clay mountain, Bangladesh-India Border, Christian Church etc. are all worth visiting. One can hire a rickshaw or a motor bike for the whole day. The rickshaw pullers or bike drivers can guide you for visiting places but be aware from frauds. Living facility is limited. YMCA and YWCA guest house and Govt. Daak Banglow is good. Other living places are so so.”Nirala Restaurant” located in Durgapur Bazar is good with it’s food quality and price. And don’t forget to have “Balish Mishti” after the Lunch and a cup of “Malai Cha”.
