The word ‘Andharmanik’ is mysterious. You can feel the enormity of this natural beauty when you see it with your own eyes. Andharamanik is located after Bara Madak in Thanchi upazila of Bandarban district. After the Bara Madak, there are no army or BGB camps and they are not allowed to go here for security reasons. The main attraction of Andharamanik is Narisha Jhiri. The stone walls of about 60/70 feet on both sides of Jhiri have gone far in parallel. It seems that someone has made it by casting. One strange creation is this underworld. The place is always dark due to low reach of sunlight. So by Andharamanik we basically mean this place.
Why is Andarmanik banned?
Andarmanik is located in the southern corner of Bangladesh, so there are many separatist organizations in the region, including deep forests, wildlife fears and Myanmar’s Arkan forces. So there is a risk of a big danger at any time in any situation.
