Route 2 :

Thanchi> Poddo muk > Bollong para > sat Bahi kum > Nakiong muk > Amiakum waterfall

 

How to go:

To visit Amiakum you have to reach at Bandarban first.

 

There are direct bus services from Dhaka. S. Alam, Unique, Shamoly and Dolphin are the non ac bus services which leave Dhaka for Bandarban at late night. The fare for non ac bus is 550 taka (2012).

 

from Chattogong to Bandorban 100 tk (2012).

 

From Bandorban, u can go to Thanchi by Bus ( 110 per person (2012)).

 

Route plan 1:

 

It’s long trail. You have to walk most of the path up-down. The trek started from Thanchi, then Boarding para > Simplampi para. From Simplampi Para you can summit Tajindong. After reaching Simplampi Para you have to climb down to Thandui Para. You have to pass one more hill to reach Bollong para. To see Amiakum u have to start journey early in morning from bollong para. In the way you can also see Sat bhai kum > Nakion Muk. It’s a Jiripoth ( water trail ) and one of the most beautiful trail at bandorban. From Nakiong Muk you have to make a Bamboo Raft to reach Amiakum.

 

Route Plan 2:

 

Thanchi to poddo muk, you can go by boat. From Poddo muk, you have to start tracking for Bollong para. It’s jiri path, known as poddo jiri. To see Amiakum u have to start journey early in morning from bollong para. In the way you can also see Sat bhai kum > Nakion Muk. It’s Jiripoth ( water trail ) and one of the most beautiful trail at bandorban. From Nakiong Muk you have to make a Bamboo Raft to reach Amiakum. On the way to amiakum you might see many deers,monkey, birds and other wild life.

 

Where to stay:

There are many hotels at bandorban. At thanchi, you can stay in the rest house. For assistance visit “Modina hotel” restaurant, they will help you to stay at thanchi.

After thanchi you can stay at any tribal para, they are very friendly and hospitable. Try to avoid Simplampi para as they are not that much friendly. Bollong para is a nice place to stay. It’s a Morong para. The Son of karbari (leader of that village) will help you to go Amiakum (Bollong para), guide cost depends on negotiation.

 

What to eat (food):

At the trail you have to manage food from locality. We always suggest taking some dry and light food for trail.

Tips/advise for traveler:

• Don’t try to Visit in rainy season. At that time there is no way to go because of flooding in the waterway.

• You may take medicine for malaria as this region is considered as malaria affected zone.

• Wear comfortable foot wear. It is very important issue for trekking. Make sure it can give you a better grip. You can wear local plastic sandal if you don’t have any other suitable footwear. Always use socks.

• Take a tribal guide rather than a Bengali guide if required. They are more efficient and helpful.

• Pack all of your good in extra water proof bag or poly bags.

• Fix how much the guide will cost you before starting a trail.

• Don’t take too much load, use backpack/rucksack instead of other sorts of bag. Couple of pairs of dress will be enough. You don’t need any tent (unless you want to do camping) because you will get accommodation easily.

• It is a really easy trek so do not afraid.

• don’t rush, that may occur any accident or trouble.

• Keep head cool in danger. That is the best act. Try to enjoy even in tough situation.

• Be a team. Do not go anywhere alone in the hills, always move with accompany.

• You must take torch light or headlight.

 

The main tip is if you want to go to Amiakum you will need a lot of mental strength than physical strength.

    There are enormous hidden natural beauties spread all over in depth of Bandarban .No word can express this bounteous of beauty & it is not possible to see all this beauty in a single tour. You have to make at list two tours to discover the beauty of Bandarban.

    2. Thanchi >Tajindong > Chombok oi Falls > Naphew Falls > Sakahafong > Sathbhai Pathor > Sathbhaikhum > Naxiang > Amiakhum >Nafakhum > Ramackri > Boropathor > Thanchi.

    29.01.12 Starting at 8.10 am we reached Sajai Para at 10.45 am. From here I have taken 6 hours to go Amiakhum by following Sathbhai Pathor > Sathbhaikhum > Naxiang & fallback.

    31.01.12 Starting at 8.00 am & we reached Thanchi Bazer at 10.30 am by engine boat via Boropathor & here ended the adventure.Here after I started for home & with the blessing of Allah finished a safe journey.
    Tribal people are very poor & they live in very remote areas. They are out of reach of medical facilities. So bring some diarrhoeal, fever & malarial medicine while visit.
    Join the campaign of resourcing alternative income source of tribal people to stop Jum cultivation to protect natural beauties.
