Blame the swampy mangrove forests or the pride of India, the Royal Bengal Tiger that Sundarbans deserve a must-visit. It’s adventurous, scenic and truly a paradise for wildlife lovers. The pleasure of visiting Sundarbans is not just in seeing things, but also in being there and submitting to the sounds of the delta. While cruising through the waterways of the mangrove forest, you’ll spot crocodiles as they swim by or lie basking on the banks. But the anticipation of sighting a tiger in its home.
Board the cab from Science City Kolkata at 9.30 am and leave for Godkhali. After your lunch, take a boat ride to Sunset Point and enjoy spectacular views. Here’s your chance to capture the nature’s panorama lying in the lap of mangroves and the confluence of three rivers. Come back to relish a sumptuous dinner and plan for the next day.
