SUNDERBAN NATIONAL PARK

The Sundarbans are in the delta of the Brahmaputra and Ganga rivers in the Bay of Bengal. One hundred and two islands are situated in this world’s largest river delta. The Sundarbans are the largest mangrove forest in the world, covering 60 per cent of India’s total mangrove area. Almost 90 per cent of all Indian mangrove species are found here. The Royal Bengal Tiger is the flagship species of Sundarbans, where it roams in the marshy areas. If you are lucky, you can see it swimming across a channel. Sundarbans are also the best place to see the Saltwater Crocodile and Water Monitor Lizard. With more than 250 bird species found here in winter, this is the perfect time to see migratory birds. One could spot seven species of Kingfishers, including the threatened Brown-winged Kingfisher.
