Sundarbans National Park

The Sunderbans are a part of the world’s largest delta formed by the mighty rivers Ganges, Brahmaputra and Meghna. Situated on the lower end of the Gangetic West Bengal, it is also the world’s largest estuarine forest. The Sunderbans is crisscrossed by hundreds of creeks and tributaries. The Sundarbans covers 10,000 sq. km. of land and water (more than half of it in India, the rest in Bangladesh) in the Ganges Delta. It contains the world’s largest area of mangrove forests. A number of rare or endangered species live in the park, including tigers, aquatic mammals, birds and reptiles. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Sunderbans is one of the most attractive and alluring places remaining on earth, a truly undiscovered paradise.
