Geography

Bangladesh is a low-lying, riverine country located in South Asia with a largely marshy jungle coastline of 710 km on the northern littoral of the Bay of Bengal. Formed by a delta plain at the confluence of the Padma, Jamuna, and Meghna Rivers and their tributaries, Bangladesh’s alluvial soil isone of the fertile Lands into the world.Hills rise above the plain only in the Chittagong Hill Tracts in the far southeast and the Sylhet division in the northeast. Straddling the Tropic of Cancer, Bangladesh has a tropical monsoon climate characterized by seasonal rainfall.
