Overview

Recommended for All Ages (10 to 60 years)

Barely 65 miles on the South from the mega-metropolis of Kolkata and dominated by the legendary swimming swamp Tigers, Sundarbans is the largest mangrove forests and delta in the word formed by three great river systems: Brahmaputra, Ganges & Meghna. Considered as one of the last true wildernesses remaining on our planet Earth, this tidal country beholds a unique ecosystem totally governed by the diurnal tides resulting into a thriving arena for a myriad life forms - from mammals to the vertebrates. Designated as UNESCO World Heritage Site, Sundarbans is contiguous to Bangladesh. The legendary Bonobibi deity revered and worshipped both by the Hindus and Muslims marks a remarkable departure from the usual notion which prevents Muslims from worshiping any idol. Being the only Mangrove Tiger Reserve in the world, Sundarbans have the rare distinction of being declared a Biosphere Reserve. The 4 million people inhabiting in about 54 islands scattered across this vast landscape depend heavily for their livelihood on this mysterious and hostile forest terrain. Come, discover the realm of the magical land with us!
