An Eco – friendly Retreat in the Hills

It is located about 40 km from the Bangladesh – Indian border of Tamabil – Dawki into Meghalaya, the foothills of the Himalayas.
Shuktara Nature Retreat is an environmentally responsible organization and all efforts are made to achieve this end. All our structures have been crafted by hand using natural and local materials. Solar energy is being used to heat water. All the construction work at Shuktara Nature Retreat has been done by the local people thus providing employment and contributing towards community development and socially responsible tourism.
The Nature Retreat is accessible by air and it is surprisingly easier and quicker to get from Dhaka to Shuktara Nature Retreat than it does to get from one end of Dhaka to the other.
