Velakhum A Natural Beautiful Place At Bandarban
In the water-stone kingdom of Velakhum, an unearthly feeling is born in Vela Bay! This lagoon of calm-clear green water descends from Amiakhum with high stone walls on both sides and in the middle. As you cross this water-mountain path upstream of Amiakhum, you will be forced to believe that the sky-scraping rock mountains on both sides are blessing you with solemnity like a god. Even if all the beauties of the world are united, nothing will be felt by this water-stone school then.
One of the most adventurous places in the country for trekkers. Here nature is decorated in its own color. This is one of the attractions of Amiyakhum trekking. It is possible to visit this place only with a raft. 5 minutes walk from Amiyakhum. Here you have to get on the bamboo raft. However, the difference between Satvaikhum and Velakhum is that after going a little farther on the Velakhum raft, we have to go down through a gap in the rock and go to another new spring which is known as Naiksharmukh.
