Bangladesh is a country in South Asia situated on the Bay of Bengal in eastern India. The country is popular for its lush greenery and numerous waterways. Asia’s three main rivers, the Ganges (locally known as the Padma), the Brahmaputra (locally known as the Jamuna) and the Meghna, pass through Bangladesh, creating the world’s largest fertile Bengal delta.
The Sundarbans, situated on Bangladesh’s southern coast which is a massive mangrove forest and the birthplace of the Royal Bengal Tiger, are shared between Bangladesh and India. Bangladesh’s geography is divided up into three parts. The fertile Ganges-Brahmaputra delta occupies much of the region. The plateaux of Madhupur and Barind form the northwest and central parts of the country. The northeast and southeast are home to ranges of evergreen hills.
In this country the air temperature was never recorded below 0 ° C. Bangladesh has a warm and humid monsoon season which lasts from June to October and supplies most of the rainfall in the country.
