Bogalake, an inscriptive endowment of beauty and pleasure at Bandarban, Bangladesh
Nature lovers always feel a thirst inside for beauty, thrill and enchantment. And the holy nature has bestowed Bangladesh with an overwhelming and unparallel creature which is publicly known as Boga Lake. Bogalake is considered as a source of wonder, unlimited beauty and adventure for the nature`s lovers and travelers. So Boga Lake is waiting with its unique beauty for those adventurous travelers who just not only want to satisfy their eyes with artificial and tedious natural beauties but also want to fill their heart with eternal joy and thrill to innovate their restless mind. And it has emerged like a holy duty of the travelers and tourists to visit the Boga Lake as soon as possible to highlight the beauty with thrill.
The origin of the name Boga lake is derived from some domestic mythological stories. The word Boga is derived from the local word Baga which means a dragon or fire. Actually some super natural stories flame the fire about the lake being the accommodation of an ancient dragon indeed and that concludes the story of the identification of Boga lake
Anthropologists define Boga lake as 2000 year old hill enclaved natural lake of Bandarban,Bangladesh. Boga lake is accompanied with deep bamboo bushes from its three sides wich are bounded by mountain peaks. Again, Boga lake is recognized as the highest natural lake of Bangladesh which is approximately 1500 ft above the sea level. Boga lake has a rectangular shap either funnel shape. But some experts argue that the Boga lake is about (3000-3700) fts above the sea levels indeed. The lake is supposed to be 38 meter deep. There remains a small spring beside the Boga lake which is called Bagachhara (153m deep). Boga lake is a closed lake and to drain out water there is no outlet. Basically Bagachhara is the fundamental source of water along with surface drainage, rain water and seepage of spring, soft and small rocks of different shapes have almost covered Boga lake surface.
The beauty and attraction of the Boga lake changes with the color change of the lake. Depending on various indicators like sun rays, clouds` humidity and the so called existence of a hot spring at the bottom of the Boga lake the water of the Boga lake takes different color at different seasons. But usually the lake water shows its extra –ordinary crystal clear mirror view of blue shade which reflects like pearls and more than enough to astonish a tourist guy.
It is easy to imagine for the common people that almost 1500 ft above sea level and unfavorable natural area of Boga lake has made it without any existence of human community or barren area indeed. But the tourists and travelers will feel relieved to know that they will find numbers of local tribes like Bawm or Bom, Khumi and others on their way and in the Boga lake area too.
Accomodation
The local tribal communities have interesting arrangements for the tourists and travelers accommodation of the Boga Lake. They have built small but attractive cottages with sufficient facilities within their range.
