Boga Lake, a wonderful wonder of the nature situated about 3000 feet above from the sea level. This amazing Lake also known as Bagaikan Lake. It is almost 22 kilometer far away from Ruma (an Upazila of Bandarban hill district, Bangladesh). The whole area of this calm lake is about 15 acres or 653400 square feet. The water of this beautiful Boga Lake is very clean and looks like a blue sky in the ground. The lake is rectangular in shape and composed of the soft rocks. This calm Lake is bounded on three sides by mountain peaks which are covered by thick bamboo bushes. It is the deepest natural lake of Bangladesh situated on the highest position from the ground.

You can be heard many mythological stories about the creation of this lake from the local people. Some of them believe that, this beautiful Lake created after the inhabitants of a Khumi village killed and ate a deity who later reappeared to them in the form of a dragon.

That is why; they also called it “The Lake of Dragon”. But the real thing is, this silent Lake was created by collection of rain water in the crater of a dead volcano and it is almost 2000 years ago. Today the main source of this Lake is the spring.

Most of the time its water looks blue but the Lakes beauty varies with the change of light.
Seasons also give it different taste to the tourists. No doubt that, the Lake attracts tourists because of its scenic beauty. But it is also popular to the travelers for its excellent trekking path. For the lover of nature, no other place can be so appealing than Boga Lake.
