Shail Prapat has located 8 km from Bandarban Ruma Road. It is a marvelous creation of natural beauty. The icy water of the fountain is flowing here all the time. The water in this fountain is very clear. Although the view of this waterfall can be seen during the rainy season, it is very difficult to get down to the waterfall. Most of the year is full of domestic and foreign tourists. Due to the location of the cliff on the side of the road, a large number of tourists can be seen here. Here one can witness the struggling life of the indigenous Bom community adjacent to the remote hills.
