In this week’s travel guide I would like to suggest our fellow backpackers to visit Birishiri, Shushong Durgapur. It is a beautiful landscape with the flow of the Shomeshwari River (but the last time I went there I crossed the river by a rickshaw, but I guess you guys will find a fine flow now since it has been raining for quite some time now), the ceramic mountains, the Christian missionary, the small hills near the India Bangladesh borders etc.


How to get there?

The best possible way to travel locally is to go to Mymensingh bus stand or commonly known as Mohakhali bus stand and catch a direct bus to Birishiri. Ticket is not more than Taka 350.


Where to stay?

If you are a big group you can risk camping near the ceramic mountains. You can also stay at the YMCA institute at a very low cost; you can also camp inside their compound if you can manage the permission.

The best ways to explore is by foot, or rent a rickshaw and ask him to take you to all the tourist spots. Believe me, they know it all.
