The Sundarbans, a UNESCO heritage site, is a part of the world’s largest delta formed by three key rivers; Ganga, Brahmputra and Meghna. Situated on the lower end of Gangetic West Bengal, the Sundarbans are criss-crossed by hundreds of inter-connecting creeks and tributaries. It is one of the most attractive and alluring places remaining on earth. A two night cruise or a stay at a local lodge is an ideal way to explore this unique environment.
The Sundarbans, literally meaning beautiful forest possibly referring to the Sundari trees that abundantly grow here, is the largest single block of tidal mangrove forest in the world. It is also home to around 400 Royal Bengal Tigers and is the largest Tiger Reserve and national park in India. The tigers have adapted themselves very well to the saline and aqua environs and are extremely good swimmers – the highlight of one of our client’s West Bengal tour was witnessing a mother and cub swimming in the Sundarbans.
Other wildlife commonly seen in the Sundarbans include Chital Deer, Rhesus monkeys, crocodiles and a wide variety of birds.
