Lasubon Canyon is an ancient canyon located about 25 km from the headquarters of Srimangal Upazila in the Moulvibazar district. It is a densely forested hilly area in the Sindurkhan Union bordering the Indian state of Tripura. In the Khasi language, the word lasuban means mountain flower or wildflower. Although Lasuban Gorge is the official name, the locals know it more as Srimangal Gorge. There are many rock rhymes, big and small, in this gorge. The three largest canyons in the area are already in the spotlight. In the local Khasi language, the three major canyons, Krem Clue, Krem Kerry, and Krem Ulka, maybe the main attractions for tourists. Which of the Lasuban canyons is one kilometer, which is less than that. There is a risk of going to these canyons. If water suddenly falls from above, there is no way to go up.
Some places have steep rocky hills. And it can cause accidents. The gorge area falls within the local Nahar Khasia capital. The whole area can be explored by a hill rhyme called Langulia rhyme. This Langulia rhyme came down from Tripura in India and entered Bangladesh. About 25 km of road is mixed with the luxury of Srimangal. Hundreds of other small and large rock rhymes are mixed with snake-like crooked rhymes. There are a few canyons in it. One hundred and fifty feet below the hill, these canyons are somewhere big and somewhere narrow. There is no rain, but big drops of water are constantly falling from the rocks. Sunlight lurks here.
There is absolutely no chance of sunlight reaching the lower or inner part. The locals call it a meteor. There is the sound of endless water in small streams. However, during the rainy season, the flow of water is more in these small streams that come down the mountain.
