introduction to Satchari National Park in Nishorgo’s Annotated Trail Brochure=

Satchari National Park has been established to preserve the remaining natural hill forest patch of Raghunandan Hill Reserve Forest. ‘Satchari’ means seven streams, which flow through the forest and form important catchments. The Park is located at Chunarughat Thana under Hobiganj District in Sylhet Division. It is nearly 130 km northeast of Dhaka on the former Dhaka-Sylhet highway and 60km southwest of Srimongal town. This is a tropical mixed-evergreen forest where majority of the smaller under-story trees are evergreen and the large dominant trees are deciduous. The National Park was established in 2005 under the Wildlife (Preservation Amendment) Act, 1974 with an area of 243 ha. Past surveys show the presence of 197 species, of which 149 species are bird, 24 species are mammals, 18 species are reptiles and 6 species are amphibians. Occurrence of this large amount of bird species makes it a bird watchers paradise. The colorful Tipra ethnic community resides within the Park.”
