Shailapropat Falls

Hiking in Bandarban

This easy walk follows the quiet road that leads uphill away from Hillside Resort. It takes about an hour to reach Shailapropat Falls, a small waterfall, which trickles from the roadside down into a ravine below. It’s popular with local tourists, so there are tea and snack stalls set up. The falls are virtually dry in the winter months.

Close to the falls is the Bawm village of Faruk Para, where you can buy handwoven baskets, fish traps and rugs.
