In April 2018, we made a wildlife tour in Lawachara. Our guide wanted to do trekking in the jungle. After discussion, we finalize to start in the early morning.
It was Saturday, 14th April 20018. According to our talks, today we waited in Srimangal. Tour guide arrived then we introduced each other. We started our journey to Lawachara. Reaching there, we heard explanation about Lawachara forest.
Our driver was interested in going with us to the deep forest in Lawachara. We very quietly stepped towards to spot out Gibbon Ulluk. It is rare species in the world. Few minutes later, leaches became active to smell blood of human. They came as if they were thirsty and hungry for a year. It was monsoon that it was to rain. In rainy season, they get life either on grass or wet place. Seeing leaches, driver ran back. We continued our hiking in Lawachara to see Gibbon Ulluck. There was drizzling. So we went under the shade for a while.
It stopped raining after a couple of minutes. We spotted out Fayre’s Leaf monkey moving in branches to feed themselves. Thus we walked for another few minutes. We did not see anything yet except Giant wood spider which is famous in Lawachara. After one hour trail, we planed to start another trail to search Gibbon.
While walking, on a sudden, we heard the call of Gibbon Hullock. Pleasure appeared in our mind. We ran back to the very spot through trails and sometimes off trails. As they stayed on the top branch in deep forest, we gent to off trails. We found them easily. We became very happy seeing Gibbon in wild. Wildlife tour was successful.
Wildlife tour with a guide
After all, we entered in the main gate to Khasia tribal village because of enough time in our schedule. We saw local tourists making noise in Lawachara. To do wildlife tour, you can make a tour as Srimangal tour and Lawachara trekking tour with a private guide.
