Sunderbans ,a UNESCO World Heritage site, boasts of being the world’s largest mangrove forest, largest Estuarine National Park in the coastal region of the Bay of Bengal that is a part of the world’s largest delta formed by the rivers Ganges, Brahmaputra and Meghna in Bangladesh. It covers an area of 4262 sq. Kms. In India alone with a larger portion in Bangladesh. The vast swampy delta of the two Indian rivers Ganges and the Brahmaputra stretches over areas covering mangrove forest, swamps and forest islands, all creating a chain of small rivers and streams. The Sunderbans is the Home of the Royal Bengal Tiger.
These evergreen mangrove forests pulsate with myriad forms of life. Above the waters the King Fisher and White Bellied sea Eagle add a brilliant burst of colour. The sea creeps in at high tide. The forests float. Watch the sea gulls, reptiles, colourful birds, wild animals, and also the spectacular sunset through the swaying forest. The ebbing waters reveal nature so alive on the glistening mud flats. The land and the forests are split by numerous rivers and water channels that empty into the Bay of Bengal. It is believed that “Bonobibi” ... the Goddess of the forest protect the wood cutters, the honey collectors, and fishermen on their hazardous missions.
