Harinbaria Forest Spot & Laldiar Char

Harinbaria Bon Kendro (Forest Spot) is one of the attractive places of Patharghata upazila. Here lie vast green paddy fields, clearly visible palmyra trees and groves of coconuts & betel nuts. It is 12 (7.5 miles) kilometres away from upazila sadar. There lies also a forest adjacent to the sea shore. The total area of this forest is about 1,762 acres. A huge number of deer are inhabited here. The whole area including the Laldiar Char is under the jurisdiction of Forest Department. There are canals that flow down the forest. During the high-tide the canals are filled with water and at the time of ebb-tide those become waterless and muddy. The fishermen travel these canals on small boats for fishing. Fishing is the main source of income of the people of this region.

Laldiar Char (Bar) is located to the south 16 kilometres (10 miles) from Patharghata Upazila. Mangrove forest like the Sundarbans spreads from Harinbaria to Laldia. The Department of Forest has created forest on the land that emerged from the Bay of Bengal close to this Laldiar Char. The Biskhali River is to the east and the Baleswar River is to the west of this forest. The two rivers and the estuary of the sea have surrounded the forest. No other fierce wild animals are seen on Laldiar Char than monkeys, deer, boars, and jackals. In the beginning of the winter, the island becomes resounded with the arrivals of various migratory birds. The sea beach lies on the east and adjacent to the forest. The sunrise and the sunset are seen from this place. This spot surrounded by the rivers and the sea attract the tourists.
