About Mohamaya Lake:
Mahamaya Lake is as beautiful as a picture with the combination of isolated hills, green vegetation, and lakes. Some enthusiasts even compare the beauty of this lake with that of Pokhara in Nepal and Hopping Island in Langkawi, Malaysia. If this lake is introduced to tourists it can be a big attraction for tourism. Mahamaya Lake is a bird paradise, a bird sanctuary. Here you can watch the fishing tricks of the fishermen, quietly listen to the birds singing in the early morning, or the chirping of insects in the evening.
Camping is fun and when kayaking is added to camping it becomes more fun. There are very few tourist spots in Bangladesh where you get both of these together. And the best thing is that you will also find camping and kayaking accessories here. Yes, this is the place where you can have an unprecedented experience of night camping and kayaking. Camping and Kayaking at Mahamaya Lake are possible thanks to Bangladesh Scout. And Bangladesh Scout deserves praise for offering such a nice camping package at such a low cost. Let’s see how to come to Mahamaya Lake, the package cost, how to book, and what is included in this package.
How to go Mohamaya Lake:
Mahamaya Lake is located in Mirersarai Upazila on Dhaka Chittagong Highway. From Mirsarai, you can take a CNG or auto rickshaw to Mahamaya Lake after having a light tea breakfast. And if you have a private vehicle, you can reach Mahamaya Lake by following the Google map from Mirsarai. No need to take an entry ticket from the lake gate for camping. Cars can also be kept inside and around your tent.
Non-AC good quality bus will cost 680 takas from Dhaka to Mirsrai, ie 1360 taka for a round trip. CNG from Mirsarai to Mahamaya Lake will cost Rs 40-50 per person.
We confirmed our camping on our phone on Wednesday. And our plan is to reach Mahamay Lake on Thursday afternoon, enjoy the beauty of the afternoon, camp at night, bar b q, and watch the sunrise in the morning. And on Friday, see a fountain in the vicinity and go back to Dhaka to see Gulikhal sea beach in the afternoon. If you want to stay camping here, you have to make a camping plan for at least 5 people, because the authority here does not take orders for less than 5 people. And the maximum camping capacity is 30 people.

The chirping of insects at night and the chirping of birds in the sunlight are endless here. While kayaking, you will notice the small dunes, the wild nature in the dunes, and the monkeys hanging on the branches of the trees overhead. The rent of these small kayaking boats suitable for 2 people is 300 taka per hour.
Girls are not allowed to camp here at night. If there are girls in the group, it is better to come for a general visit instead of a camping package.

You can go to visit nearby waterfalls such as Khoiyachora Waterfall, Jhorjhori Waterfall, Shonaichori Waterfall, and Natpittachora waterfall.
