Fountains made the Patharia hills a different beauty. High-low elevation of green trees of gives us an above imaginary scene, and the stream of water flowing down the stairs falling down to the ground.
The water of the rain runs on small and big stones. No matter how difficult and fatigue is to go to the fountain, go to the fountain of the remote, the clear water of the chill, the green nature of the four sides, the grasshoppers, the fragrance of the governing lemon fragrance, the birds and the jhun pests, the fishermen, will remove all the fatigue.
About a thousand years ago, this region was full of deep forests, and residents of the suburbs of Pathri called Naga people lived here.
The name of this forest area is Patharia, in conjunction with the name of the people living in time. This mountain extends over a 24 km area.
It is an extended part of Bangladesh's Khasia-Jaintia highlands along the eastern border of India, while the other part extends in Assam.
Karimganj district in the neighboring country of Pathariya is seen in the neighboring country of India.
Although there is a lot of orange lemon trees in the past, its number has decreased. This forest is famous for the oak-ore wood tree.
The trees found here are: Nagkeshor, Palan, Bamboo, Rattan, Kalakusturi or Mashkadana and Ban Dherosh.
Among the mineral resources, there is an oil cake on the Patharia hills. In 1933, the government arranged for oil extraction through Burmese Oil Company (BOC).
Subsequently, the oil pipes burst and the entire local area floats in oil tide for three days. Although the oil tank is presently abandoned, it still has oil reserves inside it. The ears of grain on the lid of the closed well of the well can be heard in the ground with wheat gum.
