Topographically, the Chittagong Hill Tracts (CHT) commonly known as ‘Parbotto Chattagram’ is the only hill intensive area of Bangladesh. It is  completely different in physical features,  landscapes, agricultural practices and soil conditions from the rest of Bangladesh. The tracts are situated about 60km (37 mi) east of Chittagong. CHT includes three separate districts : Rangamati, Khagrachari, and Bandarban. This region comprises a mass of hills, ravines and cliffs covered with dense jungle, bamboo creepers and shrubs, and have four main valleys formed by the Karnafuli, Feni, Shangu and Matamuhuri rivers. The valleys are covered with green, deep forest which has made CHT an enigmatic beauty.
