Steam paddle boats, locally known as âSteamersâ, âsteamer rocketsâ or simply âRocketsâ, were introduced in Bangladesh in the second quarter of 19th Century. Originally these passenger vessels used to operate with steam engines produced in Denny yard on the Clyde. But in 1995 all of the steam engines have been replaced by diesel engines. The three rocket steamers that still operate between Dhaka and Khulna are Mahsud, Ostrich, and Lepcha. Having a trip on a steamer lets you relax for a while and gives you a very interesting introduction of the rural Bangladesh.
