Nilachal, Bandarban, Chittagong

Nilachal, Bandarban
Nilachal (নীলাচল) is situated at Tigerpara, the nearest tourist spot from Bandarban. Nilachal is also known as Tiger Hill. It's about 5 km away from Bandarban and about 2000 feet above the sea level. There is a rest house, a big cafe and some small tea stalls in the Nilachal. The rest house is round-shaped with round-balcony. From the Nilachal hill you can see the whole Bandarban city one side and the hills in other side. When the sky is clear people can see the Chittagong port and sea beach. The sight of sunrise and the sunset form Nilachal will astonish you. In the rainy season visitors might found clouds around him and in the winter season can watch an awesome foggy morning.  

Nilachal, Bandarban
I have visited Bandarban twice and  never missed Nilachal. 1st time I went there with my friends in 4th December, 2011 and 2nd time with BTCL officers in 18th September, 2013. The best part of my 2nd visit was "It was a moon light night". Normally general public can not enter at night. But because of Gov. officers we are able to enter there. The decoration of the Nilachal totally change in my 2nd visit. It was more decorated and well furnished. The district administrator did a good job to make this place live again. We saw lot's of decoration work was going on.  

To book Nilachal rest house you have to talked to the officials because it maintained by the district administrator. Bandarban town is near so you can stay in Bandarban and visit Nilachal in the early morning. Unless you don't want to pass a night here - there is not much to do all the day.

Nilachal is very near (5 km). You can use your own car, baby taxi, Chader gari (kind of jeep) etc to visit there.

We stay there more than one hour, look around the place and talked to the officials of rest house and cafe. The rest house and the cafe are maintained by the district administrator. The cafe called Nemesis was not open for the customers till my 2nd visit. Hopefully it's open now.
