Hello guys how are you all hope you all are doing well many of you know me and those who don’t know me I am Rabiul Islam 3rd year computer science engineering student from BUET,
Guys I apologize in advance because due to busy schedule it was not possible to post your article for a long time. Anyway, without further ado let’s start
I have traveled to many places in Bangladesh, but everyone in the family says to go somewhere in Sylhet, I have already had a latent desire to visit Bholaganj Sadapathar in Sylhet for a long time, I presented my opinion to everyone and everyone agreed. The idea that the work started was to organize a trip to Bholaganj.
We decided to go to Sylhet from Mirpur by private car, since I had my own car, we all started preparing to go to Bholaganj, our tour will be for one day, we can complete Sadapathar tour in one day.
We decided that on Saturday 17th of December my Sylhet will leave Dhaka for Bholaganj, we were 5 of us, my parents, my younger brother Robin, and my younger sister Amy.
I didn’t take anything too big in my bag, just some clothes, camera, binoculars and a power bank to get a good battery backup for the phone, and some dry food like nuts, fried chips etc.
Then came our desired Saturday, we will leave Dhaka in the evening, we left for Bholaganj by private car by 10 pm, mom agreed to hire another private car, I mean mom was taking para that I can’t drive well. I was driving the way and Robin was driving the rest of the way. Finally we reached Bholaganj at 5 am.
It was decided beforehand that we will go to the house of one of my father’s friends, that’s what we all went to my father’s friend’s house and took a long sleep, woke up and saw that it was 12 o’clock. Currently there are 6 members, I am Robin, Amy, Mom, Dad and Dad’s friend’s uncle, Bashar.
Six of us hired a trawler to see the white stone, I don’t know the language to express what a beautiful scene our trawler is running on the river, that’s why Bholaganj is called the Kashmir of Bengal. It took us 15 minutes to sweep by trawler near the white rocks, these moments are one of the best moments of my life.
Like us, many more tourists have come to see the white stone, everyone is busy with joy, while the mother is busy taking pictures, across Bholaganj is the Meghalaya state of India, because of the rain in Meghalaya all year round, the name of the state is Meghalaya, the water of Bushi flows over the white stone. Goes and with the water comes occasional white rocks, BGB was visible on the other side
The stones were very slippery so I carefully walked over the stones, unfortunately some unscrupulous gangs stole the slippery stones,
Let’s talk a little about Bholaganj
Cherrapunji, the world’s rainiest region, is located in the Indian hill state of Meghalaya. The location of this state is upstream of Dhalai river. The scenery of this state surrounded by Khasia Jaintia hills is very beautiful. By staying at the Bholaganj Ropeway area, one can observe the beautiful scenery of the hills. Cherrapunji’s rainwater during the monsoons creates a mountain stream in the Dhalai River. Many people call the Dhalai river as a dead river during summer, but the river swells during monsoon.
The monolova form of the Dhalai river, the green hills enclosing countless white rocks, leaves a sky blue shadow in the crystalline water that accumulates in the rocks. Clouds spread over the distant mountains, along with a trickle of a waterfall or two. A carpet of sand under the river’s wobbly knee-deep water. It is like a stone kingdom with fine silver sand and numerous small and white stones. Bholaganj is the name of this beautiful picture-perfect place created by nature.

Stone quarry scene In Bholaganj Quarry, stone is extracted mainly by digging pits during the dry season. In this method, the workers first remove the sand above the quarry. The hole is gradually dug and goes down. After digging a hole 7/8 feet deep, the water rises in the quarry. When the water rises, the workers lift the stone by removing the quarry water with a shallow machine. Beyond this, stones are quarried by the ‘Shiva boat’ method.
In this method, the way of lifting stones is – an empty boat is fitted with a shallow machine engine. The engine fan rotates underwater. As the fan rotates continuously, the soil becomes soft and the stones come out. The associates lifted the stones into the boat with the help of a winch. In this method, thousands of workers extract stones. The scene of stone extraction in this method is also very enjoyable.
