Development of Eco Tourism in Chittagong Hill Tracts Problems and Prospects (Part 2)


Eco-tourism means enjoying the nature without any harming it in any way. Ours Rivers, Sundarbans, Chittagong Hill-tracts, Bandarban, Khagrachari, Rangamati, Kaptai, tea gardens and other some places have been included in eco-tourism. Eco-tourism is in its infancy in our country. Few years ago, govt. agencies and private sector have shown their interest and attention about eco-tourism. Bangladesh is called most advantage playground and darling child of nature. It has a vast budding to develop and promote nature tourism in our country. However, in the context of present global trend, nature and wild life oriented travel represents a major trend in tourism today.


Bangladesh contains greater biodiversity than that of many countries taken together. Indeed few countries in the world can match its rich and varied flora and fauna – a biological phenomenon, which simply can be described as unique. This flat alluvial plain criss-crossed by the three mighty river systems in the world– the Padma, the Jamuna and the Meghna and their innumerable tributaries and distributaries – is surely fascinating. Bangladesh is blessed with two of the worlds splendid and enchanting eco-tourism spots of diverse nature – the Sunarbans and the Chittagong Hill Tracts (CHT).In the situation, the old fashioned life style in rural Bangladesh, the rivers, the forested hills, the largest mangrove forest and pollution free sea beaches are awaiting to be converted into highly attractive eco-tourism products. Bangladesh has a fairly large number of virgin eco-tourism spots to offer.  Some of these are:


Sundarabans is a goldmine of eco-tourism. The Sundarbans, a cluster of islands with an approximate area of 3,600 square kilometers, is the greatest mangrove forest in the world. It is located about 385 km (Mongla Port) South-west of Dhaka and also located at the southern extremity of the Ganges delta bordering the Bay of Bengal in the southwest of Bangladesh, in the district of greater Khulna. It is the home of the Royal Bengal Tiger and its dense mangrove forests are criss-crossed by a network of rivers and creeks. One finds here tides flowing in two directions in the same creek, often find tigers swimming across a river or huge crocodiles basking in the sun. The variety of the natural mangrove has much to offer to an inquisitive visitor. Land and water meet in many novel ways. The Sundarabans is the natural habitat of the world-famous Bengal tiger, spotted deer, crocodile, jungles fowl, wild boar, lizards, Rhesus monkeys and an innumerable variety of beautiful birds and migratory ducks. For the botanists the love of nature, the poet and the painter, this land provides a variety of wonders. The main attractions of this area for tourists include wildlife photography, viewing and studying the world’s largest mangrove forest, boating, and meeting local fishermen, wood-cutters and honey collectors. Also great importance is the peach and tranquility of the wilderness.

Bangladesh has a fairly large number of virgin eco-tourism spots to offer.  Some of these are:

  Exciting activities take place in Dublar Char; which is Small Island in the Sundarabans. In the forest fishermen from Chittagong gather for months (mid-October to February) to catch and dry fish. But the most daring and exciting activity is honey collection. The honey collectors work in groups for just two months (April-May). It is interesting to see how they locate a hive and collect the honey. Further some famous spots include Hiron point (Nilkamal) for observing tiger, deer, monkey, crocodile, birds and natural beauty. Kuakata is another spot for deer, tiger, crocodiles, variety of birds and monkeys, and a morning and evening sympathy of wild fowls. The vast grassy meadow running from Katka to Kachikhali (Tiger point) provides opportunities for wild tracking. Tinkona Island has tiger and deer.

In Bangladesh there are many problems that affect eco-tourism development in Chittagong hill tract.  The major problems of eco-tourism are summarized below:

 Lack of primary knowledge about eco-tourism

Most of the visitors do not have any sound knowledge about eco-tourism. Tourist actions frequently harm the environment in many different ways. One of them is sound pollution. Different visitors like to enjoy music loudly, which can be greatly upsetting to the guest and serene forest environment.

Inadequate psychological knowledge

 Inadequate knowledge about the psychological condition of the human beings involved in tourism industry due to insensibility of the tourism corporation. Its characteristics deserve due consideration.

 Lack of analysis existing miserable situations

 Govt. neither adequately analyze the existing miserable situation and nor take proper steps for its rectification.

Conflict between the tribal and other people

Mainly psychological conflict is another problem of the eco-tourism. Tribal and the aborigines specially living in the main tourist spot. But they are sufferings from psychological problem, due to underdevelopment eco-tourism.

 Lack of sense of responsibility of people

It is a major problem to promote eco-system in Bangladesh. Local people do not have sense of responsibility about the eco-tourism.

Lack of public awareness

 Eco-tourism can lead to the formation of tourism manners. But due to lack of public awareness about environment it has failed.

 Lack of basic facilities

Eco-tourism has not yet developed due to lack of basic facilities like accommodation, transportation and safety, which are key factors in maintaining the eco-tourism industry in Chittagong hill tract.

Lack of publications on eco-tourism

 There are no enough published materials and publications on eco-tourism in Chittagong hill tract like handbook, poster, leaflet etc.

 Harmful impacts

 Eco-tourism is enhancement friendly. But we do not consider the harmful impact of this enterprise. We only give importance of the gain and loss in the business but do not establish good relationship with them for better impact.

 Threatened biodiversity

Biodiversity is threatened in Chittagong hill tract due to a shift from subsistence to a cash economy and increasing population. The threat to Chittagong hill tract biodiversity is serious but not irreparable.


Deforestation is the most important problem of eco-tourism. Cash-crop development, urbanization and small- holder farming sometimes led to deforestation in our country adversely affective eco-tourism.

 Insufficient attention

For development of eco-tourism industry and its marketing has found to give insufficient attention to the possible significance of cultural and natural heritage in Bangladesh. Many rainforests, mangrove forests and other eco-systems are not utilized as tourist attraction in Bangladesh.

Policy problem

Bangladesh lacks a national policy on eco-tourism. Thus adversely affect the govt. and privet sector eco-tourism activities.

 Destruction by tourists

Unaware and careless tourists can be the cause of destruction. Tourists, who unmindfully or without caring anything throw away their left-over food scraps and drinks, leave behind synthetic articles or tin or plastic containers cause damage to the local environment in our country.

 Negative image about Biman

The role of our national airlines is very important to develop tourism sector. But Biman Bangladesh has failed due to the poor capacities in marketing, bookings, onboard, service, image, maintenance, entertainment on board, poor quality of its in flight magazine etc. Therefore, Biman Bangladesh is not only losing its foreign tour operators but also providing to its passengers negative impact about the country.

1. We have bright future and prospects of eco-tourism development in Chittagong hill tract. Although, unknown too many prospective tourists across the globe, Chittagong hill tract geographical diversity provides it fairly rich in flora and fauna. There are many of identified plants and species of which sizable number are flowering plants over thousand birds, thousands of insects, hundreds of amphibians and reptiles, many worms and several hundred mammals found in Chittagong hill tract. The co-existence of man and nature can best be studied in Chittagong hill tract, which provides a great emotional and educational experience to the visitor. Bangladesh can also offer a variety of nature such as open-air jeeps, elephants, boats, bicycles, cycle rickshaws, from atop a machan or watch tower and of course, walking.

2. The study has found that Eco-tourism in Chittagong hill tracts suffers from a poor image; eco-tourism potential on the contrary is rated high. Now it is in a very early but promising at stage of development. Experts are unanimous that Bangladesh has great potentials for the development of tourism in general and eco-tourism in particular.

3. The Government of Bangladesh announced a National Tourism Policy in 1992. The policy acts as a guideline for the overall development of the tourism industry in the country. Public and private sectors could play their respective roles for its promotion, earning of foreign exchange and creation of job opportunities.

4. A strategic Master Plan has also been formulated by World Tourism Organization with the assistance of UNDP for integrated development of tourism in the country. Steps have been taken to develop tourism infrastructure in phases as per the recommendations of the Master Plan, which include creation of tourism facilities at various places. It is expected that the whole country will come under a tourism network. Therefore, both public and private sectors concerted efforts are necessary to development and utilization of the potentials of the industry.

5. Chittagong hill tract is known to all of the country that, it has bright future and prospect of eco-tourism development in Bangladesh. So if we develop the eco-tourism management plan properly by private public initiator in Chittagong hill tract, we can create the potential job opportunities and will be earn a huge foreign exchange.


Humans are part of the eco systems that eco-tourism seeks to protect. Eco-tourism is not only a means for visitors, governments and scientists to conserve protector areas, but also recognizes that local communities are stakeholder in the eco-tourism process and its success and failure. Different group of people involved in Eco-tourism in Bangladesh to protect eco-system. They are:

Local inhabitants

 Local inhabitants are the most important group to enhance the eco-tourism. Eco-tourism focuses on local cultures and wilderness adventures. Local cultural heritage is the primary attraction of the eco-tourism. Eco-tourism includes programs that minimize the adverse effects of traditional tourism on the natural environment and enhance the cultural integrity of local people. As a result, eco-tourism is an integral part for the local inhabitants to the creation of economic opportunities.

 Hotels, Motels & their employee

Another group involved in eco-tourism activities is the owners of hotels, motels, resorts and privet guest house and their officers & workers. This group of people involved in the tourism industry need to make good relation with tourist for better impact. With a view to making the tourism industry more popular and viable co-operation and supports from all sides are necessary.

Tour operators

Various Govt. and private tour operators are actively involved to established eco-tourism in different spots in Bangladesh. BPC is one of them tour operator. Other privet tour operators are the Guide Tour Ltd. Unique Tour and Travel, Overseas Tour Operators, Airlines, Travel Agencies, Hotels and Motels etc. Bangladesh Tourist Corporation developed eco-tourism in the Sundarban, which is one of the top priorities of Forest Department and the SBCP (Sundarban Biodiversity Conservation Project).

Drivers and helpers of local buses and cars

Responsible travel to natural areas that conserves the environment and improves the well being of local people. It means that those who implement and participate in Eco-tourism activities. Therefore, drivers of local buses, cars are closely related with tourism and its development.

Artists: cultural and Drama etc

Many artists of cultural and drama organization have been involved in developing eco-tourism policies. Cultural conservatism and preservation are related to Eco-tourism, in which, people concerned and related with cultural and drama are activity perform their work so as to enhance attraction of tourists.

 Local leaders, NGOs workers and Youth

They are supporting partners to eco-tourism and highly involve providing services to the local and foreign tourists.

 Reporters of the newspapers and Electronic media

Reporters of the newspapers and Electronic media are working for environmental awareness and education of all stakeholders for the enjoyment of nature for international and domestic visitors.


Eco-tourism recognizes the idea of the local community’s involvement preservation of nature. Eco tourism has the potential not only provide quality employment, income generation and business opportunities for local people, but also to acts a catalyst for the preservation of natural environment and indigenous or tribal cultures. Though there are many problems remaining in eco-tourism in Chittagong hill tract, there are also remaining some possibilities of this sector.


Eco-Tourism means making as little environmental impact as possible and helping to sustain the indigenous populace, thereby encouraging the preservation of wild life and habitats when visiting a place. This is responsible form of tourism and tourism development, which encourages going back to natural products in every aspect of life. It is also the key to sustainable ecological development. In fact some national and international researcher and research organizations make examined Eco-Tourism from their point of views. The findings after this research are-

Problems loaded with managerial confinements lead to the distraction of tourist spots,

 Lack of communicable system, extensive effort from the governmental bodies as well as lack of secured investment by corporate tourist organizations results in the fragile tourist system,Presence of alienation between the tourist system and the local inhabitants puts the possibilities of vibrant tourist at stake.

 Specific emphasizes on few familiar tourist spots with aggravated sense of artificial naturalness destroys the authenticity of nature and thus makes the ecosystem vulnerable,

 Media related pieces of information often leads to the discouragement of the tourist.


Eco-tourism is becoming an increasingly popular expression of the awareness about environment. It is now one of the post popular concepts in the tourism industry, throughout the world in the environmental sectors. In fact, tourism is now the largest industry of the world. It can be noted here that eco-tourism is a fastest growing segment. We need to take proper steps that may help to overcome or minimize the problems leading to growth and development of eco-tourism for betterment of the country. The recommendations are as follows:

 Generate greater awareness

It is necessary that we generate greater awareness among public authorities and the private sector regarding eco- tourisms capacity to contribute to the conservation of the natural and cultural heritage, which will affect tourists and help the improvement of standard of living of the people of those areas.

Disseminate eco- tourisms method

To protect eco-systems we should disseminate methods and techniques for the planning, management, regulation and monitoring of eco-tourism to guarantee its long-term sustainability.

 Increase marketing opportunity

Our authority should increase opportunities for the efficient marketing and promotion of eco-tourism destinations and products on international markets.

Capture global tourism market

The aim of the eco-tourism development in our country should be capture a portion of the huge global tourism market by attracting visitors to natural beauty spots and using the revenues, to fund local conservation and fuel economic development.

 Publish necessary handbooks

The authority should publish necessary hand books and related materials and distribute the same to the concerned following levels of people for their awareness and conscientization building without delay: i) local people and tribal and primitive or native inhabitant’s society. ii) National and international tourists. iii) Group of people involved in tourism industry.

 Publicity about eco-tourism through media

Different information about eco-tourism should be arranged for publicizing in the daily news papers and broad casting the same through media like radio, T.V. etc for enhancing public awareness.

Education and training

Education and training are most important factors that enhancing the links between biodiversity conservation planning and tourism. Hotels, motels, restaurants and tour operators should be provided with various training programs among their staff at every level.

 Development infrastructure facilities

The government of Bangladesh and the BPC need to understand that eco-tourism is an industry. It is the fastest growing industry in the world and would provide the country with big amount of foreign currencies. So, it needs a ground to create and develop eco-tourism, which is based on understanding the need of eco-tourism and create a safe and sanc environment. The tourist should be given easy and cheaper visa facilities, safe water, food and security, infrastructure comforts, emergency managements, availability of basic amenities and communication. Therefore, infrastructure development is most required element for expansion of eco-tourism facilities to the tourists. For a good infrastructure the role of airlines, good accommodation, recreation etc cannot be over emphasized.


These may be arranged to project eco-tourism potentials of our country: to established linkage for the growth of inbound, to bring together travel related agencies, BPC, airlines, hotels, motels, tour operators, credit card companies, cargo and air express companies etc to facilitate exchange of information and ideas among the partners in travel trade.

Need investment by private entrepreneurs

To develop eco-tourism we need more investment by the private entrepreneurs. We expect that private entrepreneurs might come forward to invest in the tourism sector. However, private entrepreneurs have to be provided with necessary facilities and infrastructures and for that there is need of implementation of some develop projects.

Improve moral obligation

We should improve our moral obligations for loving the nature and be friendly environment. The interaction of tourism and biodiversity conservation should be known at different schools level along with technical, university, where tourism is taught.

Incentives offer by the Government

 The Government should offer incentives and allot necessary land to encourage private entrepreneurs in establishing enough accommodation along with restaurant facilities in the tourist areas. The private sector will definitely need initial financial assistance from the govt. or some outside source.

 Form Eco-Tourism Council

The Government of Bangladesh should form Eco-Tourism Council. It is essential to coordinate different ministerial function to promote eco-tourism in our country.

 Expand National Hotel and Tourism Training Institute (NHTTI) activities

The activities of the National Hotel and Tourism Training Institute (NHTTI) should be expanded all over the country. The NHTTI will provide skill to concerned personnel through local and foreign training. Moreover, the training institution can also provide formal and informal training for youth workers, tourism industry workers, tourism guides, and transport workers in the tourism business.

Building positive image of Bangladesh Biman

Bangladesh Biman difficulties need to be overcome. We should ensure good quality of services, on board; ensure maintenance& entertainment on board etc. As a promotional measure airlines could offer cheaper tickets and packages for tourist. Obviously something can be done to promote the tourism of Bangladesh in collaboration with the hotel, airlines, and tour operators at international level. It is opined that Bangladesh whose image aboard is at lowest ebb as the poorest country in the world and prone to natural calamities like flood and cyclone. Bangladesh government need to take effort to dispel the image and depict that Bangladesh really is the country with unspoiled natural beauty and a charm that comes from friendly and hospitable people.

 Organizing workshops and seminars

We need holding workshops, seminars and discussion with the people of different levels, irrespective of caste, creeds religion race and political affiliation to protect our nature.


Bangladesh has potentials for growth of eco-tourism. Its geographical location down the highest mountain peak- Everest has made our country a subject of interest of people in the world. With the ecological and environmental interests today, ecological themes and aspects are growing more and more popular in tourism. We have land mass is crossed by major rivers and natural lakes. The Mangrove forest- Sundarbans is a major object of interest for local and foreign tourists. Three hill districts are very interesting for local and foreign tourist. Eco-Tourism can change the unequal relationships of conventional tourism. So if we develop the eco-tourism management plan properly by private public initiator in Chittagong hill tract, we can create the potential job opportunities and will be earn a huge foreign exchange.
