Overview

Declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO, Sunderbans, in West Bengal, is a vast swampy treasure trove of mangroves and thriving wildlife and flora and fauna. It is the largest Tiger Park in India, spreading over 4264 sq. km. of land. It is home to more than 250 majestic big cats, the Royal Bengal Tiger. Rare varieties of birds like the Mangrove whistler, Masked Fin foot and Mangrove Pita can also be spotted if you are lucky enough. The Spotted Deer, Monkeys, Kingfisher, Heron, Wild Pigs and the White Bellied Eagle have made it their home. The alluring beauty of the Sunderbans is an experience that will linger forever in your mind. The national park is off limits for the tourists however, tourists can visit the wildlife sanctuary for the turtle hatchery, crocodile enclosure, Mangrove Interpretation Centre and a Shark Pond.
