Based on a fresh analysis of the finer SRTM 1-ArcSec digital elevation data made available in January 2015, here is a map of the mountains of Bangladesh with elevations greater than 2000 ft and topographic prominence greater than 300 ft. 75 such mountains are shown in this map, and the list below.

*Summitability score is calculated as (PeakElevation*100/QualificationElevation)+(Prominence*100/QualificationProminence), where QualificationElevation=2000ft and QualificationProminence=300ft, therefore a mountain which barely qualifies on both measures will have a score of 200. Anything below 200 is not a mountain.

  1. Last month we have got 3484m to 3490m elevation reading at the top of Mowdok Taung/ Saka Haphong. Most of the Mountain peaks are already submitted by different trekking groups of Bangladesh. :) যেগুলো বাকি আছে সেগুলোও হয়ে যাবে আপনার ডাটা পাবার পর :)

    1. I had the hillwalkers and peakbaggers in my mind when I first started doing this analysis. All the best for all who walks that difficult terrain. I wish I could accompany some of you some day.

    2. The peaks you are mentioning are on the Mawdak Range which lies on the International Boundary and hence the peaks do not belong to a particular country alone. In fact, it is a No Man's Land.

    3. There is no such rule as such. Moreover, you might know that Mount Everest itself is on the border between Nepal and China.

    4. Mount Everest is on the border of Nepal and China, but peak is belongs to Nepal. (north and east side belongs to China)

    5. So do all the peaks I have shown on my map. Some of them, including the Mowdok Taung, might be near the border of Bangladesh and Myanmar, but I have shown only those which are completely in Bangladesh side (according to the best known location of the border).

    1. Thanks for your interest. As I wrote at the end of the list "Summitability score is calculated as (PeakElevation*100/QualificationElevation)+(Prominence*100/QualificationProminence), where QualificationElevation=2000ft and QualificationProminence=300ft, therefore a mountain which barely qualifies on both measures will have a score of 200. Anything below 200 is not a mountain." Which means, this is a score which will give a proxy indication of the attractiveness of a peak to a summiter. Hope this helps.
