Day by Day Overview

Pick up from your hotel in Kolkata and drive to Sunderban National Park. At the Sonakhali/ Godhkhali jetty a  motor boat will transfer you to your lodge/resort/boat. Sunderban is the natural abode of the famous Royal Bengal tigers and numerous crocodiles, snakes and deer. The forest with its entwining rivers is one of the last strongholds of the wild world. Enjoy a boat cruise in the park. Overnight at hotel, resort or boat anchored in middle of the river.

Declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1997, the Sunderbans stretch across 4,000 sq km in India and another 6,000 sq km in Bangladesh, making it the largest mangrove forest in the world. The vegetation here is a unique mix of trees and shrubs that have adapted to their saline coastal habitats like the pneumatophores which have modified roots that grow out of the water’s surface so they can breathe. Look out for the iridescent fiddler crabs, amphibious fish like mudskippers, water monitors, alligators, deer, wild boar and the lovely Irrawady dolphins. The delta is a paradise for birdwatchers who delight in spotting egrets, sandpipers, plovers, kingfishers, herons. Some can even get a rare chance to spot the migratory Asian dowitcher! But the most famous resident of the area is the Royal Bengal Tiger. The tigers have adapted to the surroundings and can survive on saline water, swim and eat fish and other seafood.
