Baktlai Jhorna which is currently the highest waterfall in Bangladesh. Baktalai Jharna is about 390 feet high and is located at Baklai village in Bandarban. Due to security reasons, the administration has closed this route since 2015. When a strong current flows through the crevices of a mountain about 390 (+/- 10) feet and hits the rocks below, its rapid velocity, disappearing sound and the surrounding wild environment give rise to a different kind of inferiority.
