Unfortunately, it’s likely that all of your preconceived notions of what a Bangladeshi tribe looks like is not appropriate. Here you won’t see any long necked woman or tribal dances in an authentic hill tribe village. No. Instead, you can expect to see a real, working family who speaks their own tribe language, uses unique cooking techniques and warmly invites you into their home to share a meal. Please be assured, no fake long-neck display could top the cultural experience you’re about to have with an authentic triabal tour!
