Damp and jade Sylhet, a place of countless waterways and tender humplike hills coroneted in garish green tea plantations, is one of the more scenically gorgeous parts of the country. Aside from the regional capital, Sylhet, which is a township of sophisticated desires and spiritual satisfaction, this is a state knitted out with the environmentalist in mind. Such people will find never-ending opportunities for amusement in the forests and lakes that entwine a tapestry around the copious rivers and fruit plantations. It is tea, although, that is the real heart of life here. Sylhet produces over 55 million kilos of tea yearly, with more than 150 tea estates spread over 40, 000 hectares.
