Fortunately Bangladesh has not yet been discovered by mass tourism and the omnipresent hospitality will touch the heart of the visitor.
Travel with us to the world's longest beach or search for the Bengal tiger in the most glorious mangrove forests.
GOLPATA ECO TOURS
To provide visitors to Bangladesh with a unique (travel)experience and to earn money for our hostel in Savar, we decided to establish a travel agency called Golpata Eco Tours.
Cooperating with a local partner we have been able to compose interesting packages, creating maximum flexibility in choosing the areas to visit as well as the duration of the trip.
Of course we focus on sustainabilty, preservation of natural resources and we always try to involve the locals in our activities.
Pay a visit to the southwest, for instance: hills, excellent for nature trails combined with a visit to authentic villages and their inhabitants. Or perhaps you'd like to try a trip by eco-boat through the Sunderbans in the southeast, known for its birds, deers and the one and only Bengal tiger. In the northwest are the famous tea plantations as well as the possibilty to hike in one of the national parks.
Another option is to stay with a local family (Community Based Tourism). You will be able to participate in the daily family routine and they will take you to the most attractive spots of their area.
We would love to show you some of our projects so you'll be able to see what we've been able to achieve with the support of our donors and why it is so important to continue. Perhaps at the end of your stay there'll be time to relax a couple of days at the world's longest beach at Cox' Bazar.
