How to go:
There is no common trail for this peak. You can use so many trail, but It will be easy for you if start from Ruma to Prangsha para. It is a 5 hours trekking path from Ruma to Prangsha para. You have to walk 16 km. Your next destination will be Engrai Para but before this you have to hike several hills. One more tribal village will come your way after Engrai para. Nuton para or Thammokh para. This will be the last tribal village before summit. Then move towards the Peak “Naag Pahar”. It will take another two hours from Nuton para to the summit point.
Where to stay:
If you reach Bandarban early in the morning and start trekking from Ruma to Prangsha para you can stay night at Prangsha Para. The people of Prangsha Para go to bed early so you have to reach there before 8 pm or you have to carry tent. For the day one Prangsha para will be the best choice to pass the night. For the second day after the summit you can pass the night at Nuton para or Engrai Para. But it’ll be better if you can come back to Prangsha Para. Here you can get better facility about food and accommodation.
What to eat (food):
In this trail Bogalake is not included so take your meal at Ruma then start trekking with dry foods like Khejur, Biscuits, Chocolate, Nodules, soup and also carry plenty of water. If are lucky and fast enough to reach Prangsha Para before the sunset you can get food from local people. Remember Prangsha para has the better facility than Nuton Para or Engrai Para. You can get food from those two tribal village but Prangsha Para will be better for you. Ruma to Prangsha Para is a big distance but you will hardly find jhiri path (near at Prangsha Para only) so be very careful about drinking water.
