Satchari National Park
Satchari National Park is a national park in Habiganj District, Bangladesh. After the 1974 Wild Life Preservation Act, in 2005 Satchari National Park was built on 243 hectares (600 acres) of land. Literally 'Satchari' in Bengali means 'Seven Streams'. There are seven streams flowing in this jungle, and the name 'Satchari' came from there.
The name satchhari means “Seven streams” being a reference to the streams flowing through the forest, providing plenty of water for the lushly evergreen forest and flora and fauna. It is a superb slab of tropical forest with a higher diversity of plants and animals. There are a number of marked walking trails, several streams, some hoolock gibbons, otters, jungle fowls, pygmy woodpeckers, and orient pied hornbills in this forest.
