Overview of Keokradong
Keokradong (or Keokradang) is the third highest mountain peak located in South-Eastern Bangladesh. It was long claimed as the highest peak there, a mistaken infomration that still features in respected sources including some Bangladesh textbooks as well as the CIA World Factbook website. On the top of Keokradong there is a small shelter and a signboard put up by the Bangladeshi military proclaiming the altitude to be 3172 feet. Garmin GPS recorded 974 metres (3196 feet) at this location, a measurement consistent with Russian topographic mapping and SRTM data. It is at 21°57?00?N, 92°30?53?E. USGS and Russian mapping dispute the claim that this is the location correctly named Keokradong; they show Keokradong at an 883m summit further north.
