The Sunderban is the world's largest mangrove forest, inhabited by magnificent beasts and riddled with a dense network of inland creeks. Stretching for over a length of 80 kilometers across two nations, it branches towards the mouth of Bay of Bengal. The entire region covers an area of 10,500 square kilometers and is dotted with Sundari trees that have roots jutting out of the waterline. It is home to a fairly healthy population of Royal Bengal Tigers, who thrive in this rich ecological hotspot and are easy to sight.
The region is mostly navigated through boats, as the ferrymen slice through the looming mangrove branches. A photographer's haven, the location is richly inhabited by exotic birds, indulge in some leisure fishing, spot the alligators and axis deer from tree houses and watchtowers, and embark on jungle safaris to spot the magnificent striped beasts hunt for their prey. Sunderban helps you disconnect from the monotony of urban living and brings you closer to nature, where unexpected rendezvous with feral beasts are common. This gives you the much-needed adrenaline kicks that can be easily cooled off by lounging in scenic resorts and lodges.
History of Sunderban
The East India Company owned the rights to extend their business to the Sunderbans from the Mughal Emperor Alamgir II in the year 1757, which resulted in rampant exploitation of the mangroves. After Independence, a majority of the region was demarcated to be under strict reservation rules via the Forest Act of 1865. Presently, the Sunderban National Park is enlisted under the World Heritage Sites, as surveyed and declared by UNESCO.
