Hatirjheel is a popular lake area in Dhaka and a good spot for a run, featuring waterside promenades, a dancing fountain, and illuminated bridges. It’s located in the south Gulshan Lake district, and can be combined with our Gulshan Lake route.
A loop around Hatirjheel, following mainly waterside paths, is 7.5 km. There are three small bridges that can be used to vary or shorten the loop. Our route includes an optional 2 km out and back section through Gulshan South Park and along the Gulshan Lake Walk Way, which is connected to the north end of Hatir Jheel lake.
Longer Run: Combine with our Gulshan Lake/Baridhara route. From Hatir Jheel, it’s a runnable 2.8 km along United Nations Rd. to Baridhara Lakeside Rajuk Park.
