Welcome to Mongla

The environment in Mongla is bleak, to say the least. Ravaged by floods, hit by frequent cyclones and in constant dearth of fresh potable water, humanity here is caught in an eternal struggle for survival against the elements. Of course, you will face none of it on a boat trip or during your stay here, as tourists are always considered a priority.
