Bilasi Waterfall-Low Budget Tour-Sitakunda

Bilasi Waterfall

A secluded and little-known spring in Banshbaria of Sitakunda Upazila is called “Bilasi Waterfall (Jharna in Bengali)”. It is also called “Bashbaria Waterfall”. This waterfall belongs to the Bilasi trail which is easier and shorter than the rest of the trails in Sitakunda so anyone can trek this trail very easily. It will take 20-30 minutes to reach the first spring in this trail. Even a few years ago, this fountain was unknown to everyone. Nowadays many tourists come here. If you go along the opposite side road of Bashbaria Sea Beach, you will see a road. This road leads you to the trail. When you go a little further along the Local market, you can see the railway line. You have to cross this railway line for almost all the springs in Sitakunda. All trains from Dhaka to Chittagong travel through this way. You can leave your heavy things or backpack in the tea stall or local house. After a while, I could hear the train whistle. A few small tin shed houses, domestic animals were barricaded with rope in different places, and small children were playing around. We noticed a small village after crossing the railway line. We entered the Jhiri Path. The water of Jhiri was so Icy. I was feeling frizzy when I touched the water. As there was no rain that day, the trail had less water. But this trail is very wild. Green plants and small hills want to surround you. If you mute yourself for some moment you can hear the twittering of unknown birds and insects.

Before reaching the spring, we heard the sound of falling water from a distance. we realized that this beautiful is not far away. This trail ends here. Green plants surround this fountain wildly. Although it was not raining, the amount of water was medium. There is a huge khum(Deep lake) in front of the waterfall. This khum is created by falling water from the spring. Although the depth of Khum is not so deep. if you don’t know how to swim, there is no need to go into the water. We all bathe to Khum to refresh our tired bodies. There is another cascade above this fountain. If you go up along the right side road, you will see mini double falls. There is another khum in front of the fountain.
