SUNDARBANS NATIONAL PARK & TIGER RESERVE
About sUNDARBANS National Park
The Sundarbans National Park, located in the north and south 24-Parganas district, is a part of the largest delta in the world formed by the convergence of two mighty Himalayan rivers, the Ganga and the Brahmaputra.
Designated as a World UNESCO Heritage Site, Sundarban National Park gets its name from the Mangrove plant called ‘Sundari’ or ‘Shundori’ in Bengali, meaning beautiful, and the word ‘Sundarbans’ can be translated to ‘beautiful forests.’ The entire area is a conglomeration of river channels, creeks, and islands, and the forest can be enjoyed the most by navigating through boats. The Mangrove forests are the widest reserve to the Royal Bengal Tigers, and the park also has floating watch stations and camps to prevent the activities of poachers.Sightings of the unique wildlife here is a challenging affair, but the thrill of a boat safari amongst the widest mangrove forests of the world is worth a visit.
