Kaptai Lake is the largest man-made freshwater lake in Bangladesh. It is located near Kaptai town in the Rangamati District. The lake results from the building of the Kaptai Dam in 1962 for a huge hydro-electric plant on the Karnaphuli River.
Kaptai Lake is composed of 2 immense reservoirs joined by a narrow gorge.


The Rangamati district is the largest district of the country. It is part of the Chittagong Hill Tracts that are the only hill intensive area of Bangladesh. The Chittagong Hill Tracts are situated in southeastern Bangladesh and border Myanmar.


Rangamati,
the administrative headquarter of the Rangamati district, is known as Lake City. It is located about 80 km (50 mi) from Chittagong, formerly known as Jalalabad, which is the main seaport and the second-largest city in Bangladesh.
