Tura Peak provides a beautiful view of the golden yellow plains of Bangladesh and the lower Brahmaputra Valley. A foot track can also be found which was created for the use of the Deputy Commissioner of Garo Hills, during the colonial rule in India. This foot track is very convenient for trekkers willing to reach the top of the Tura Peak.
