When you have to blow out the clouds in the morning and find the door, you have to thank yourself again and again for being born in this country.

Tindu can be reached in two hours and 20 minutes by engine driven boat from Thanchi in Bandarban. Even if you write a huge book about Tindu, it is not possible to get a glimpse of its beauty. Suffice it to say, the biggest feature of Tindu, the land of clouds and fog, is that in the rainy season, you can go over the clouds by boat, and if you walk through the white clouds for a while, your head gets wet. There is a stream of clear water running around aimlessly with the hard rock in its chest all the time. As I was walking on the pebbles, I took a dip in my knees and ate the whole one-sided crystal clear water.

Two jhiri paths have passed on both sides of Tindu, clear water is gurgling from there all day long. The combination of water and stone has created nakshi katha here. The rocky beach of Tindupar has added a new dimension here. Millions of unequal rocks have formed an uneven paved path, the walk becomes depressing as soon as the path is over, I deliberately spend another spring here.

If Bandarban-Kanya left Tindu and moved further upwards, then it would seem that the rocky world under the water is changing minute by minute. The name of the place is ‘Big Stone’.

Here the river has become like a ladder, here you have to push the boat up and down in the water like the foothills, from there it is very close to the clouds. Here the rainbow is made by mixing stones and water at midday. The rainbows floating in the north wind are sheltered by the green leaves of the trees hanging along the banks of the river. Here you can see the sunrise by blowing away the clouds, here you can see the sunset by keeping an eye on the water.

A black and white museum of water and stone has been built around this point. Even if you dip your feet in the mountain water and hang out with the new fish all day long, you will not get tired of sweating on your earlobes. The water-rock hangout is frozen here. This is the land of clouds, this is the land of fog, this is the land of rocky water, this is tindu, this is the point of cloud-fog.
