Sippi Arsuang Hill A Beautifull Hill At Bandorban

Sippi Arsuang

Sippi Arsuang is one of the highest peaks in Bangladesh with a height of approximately 3034 feet which is the 10th highest peak in Bangladesh. The location of Sippy Arsuang Hills is in the depths of Roangchhari Upazila of Bandarban District in the Chittagong Hill Tracts of Bangladesh. Located in Roangchhari, this hill can be an ideal trek for beginners. It also takes less time. This trek can be completed in just three days. The Sippy Trail from Roninpara is slowly skyrocketing. There are three hilltops in the Sippy Range. Although the main summit peak is recognizable from a distance, the closer you get to it, the more you will start playing hide-and-seek behind the other peaks to give dust to your eyes. A total of four steps, meaning you have to cross four hills to reach Sippy Peak.

Sippi Arsuang

Its name is different in different indigenous languages. The Bam tribes say- Sippy, Tangchanga say- Rametang, Marma say- Ramatang, Pangkhoa say- Arsuang which means cock comb. Also called by many names including Ramjum. The three peaks that can be seen from Sippy Para, the south peak of which is tied to the left of Sippy. The middle one is Arsuang. The one on the right is called Tongkong Tung. Some also call the survival of the South Sippy Arsuang. However, whatever the name, the mountain is known to travelers as Sippy Arsuang.

Several neighborhoods can be seen from Sippy including Shankhamuni Para. There was a British camp at the top of Sippy or earlier. On the way to Roninpara, you have to go down a steep hill, from which you can see Sippy. It is heard that there are tigers in the forest at the top of Sippy. Besides, deer and pigs are easily available in that forest. In December 2015, deer were caught in a trap set in Sippy’s forest. Later, the hunters went to fetch the deer and found the remains. However, no one has seen a tiger in the near future.
