Sundarban is the largest mangrove forest in the world and one of the best tourism in Bangladesh which is a mist-masked, river-riddled slough region of changing tides, human-eating tigers and secluded adventure. This is really wild landscape and chug-chugging along its river waterway into its marshy heart of darkness is as breathtaking as it is serene.
The main attraction is the Royal Bengal tiger. Approximately 400 of these glorious creatures call the Sundarbans home, which also called the largest population of tigers on the earth. Even with their character as man-eaters, they are really difficult to spot, but the adventure of trying to track one down is hard to exaggerate. And even though you see none of them, just sitting on the deck of your boat as you hover through thick mangrove forests is a memorably dreamy experience.
How to see the Sundarbans
The Sundarbans is joint almost 70-30 between Bangladesh and India and you may visit it from either country. The India part is more simply accessible, but Bangladesh provides the opportunity to discover the forests in more depth. There are several types of trips at Sndarban:
- Boat tour from Khulna (Bangladesh)
- Day trip from Mongla (Bangladesh)
- The honey-harvest trail (Bangladesh)
When to go
October to February (winter season) is the most comfortable to explore the Sundarbans. You may expect little rain sometime and temperatures between 18-25 degrees Celsius. June to August (summer rains) bring greener than green landscape, but sometimes flooding can interrupt travel plans. Honey-harvest trips are for April only.
