We took a 3 day tour of the Sunderbans, starting in Mongla and traveling to Kotka, aboard the MV Gung Chil. The boat itself was functional and the staff were great, especially the cook (the food was great) and the guide (we saw many animals). However, it was not the cleanest boat I have ever been on, even by Bangladeshi... More

After traveling a few days in Bangladesh. The Sundarbans were the perfect spot to travel to. Hop on a boat and travel a few days between the mangroves in hope to spot a royal Bengal tiger. Even though the chances are pretty small to spot one, you'll have plenty of other wildlife around you (deers, snakes, boars, Crocs,river dolphins, and... More

The fresh morning air on a rowing boat going up the canals, spotting a snake sunning itself in the morning, tracking through the soft smooth floor of the mangrove forest - the Sundarbans are well worth the visit for the peace and sense of distance from the rest of the planet. We travelled with The Guide Tours who were excellent... More

By travelling through road then a boat you are taken into a mystic world of nature full of stories of Royal Cat (Bengal Tiger). Once on the boat story of sharks, crocodiles and tiger from the local people rushes your adrenalin in your blood stream. The sight of Mangroves and You imagine how the tigers deer live in such type... More

Arrange a small group so you can get a cozy boat, for example by Rupanter and enjoy the beautiful nature from a lazy chair. Of course you will get off the boat for a foot trail or a cultural program. Delicious food and friendly hosts. Check Golpata Eco Tours for more information how to organize a wonderful trip inside the... More

Yes, it's excellent too. Eco Tourist and Nature lover should visit Sundarbans-the largest mangrove forest and enjoy the trip of MV Mahirah

The Sunderbans are a world in themselves - and different from anything I had imagined. The mangroves cast a spell on you, as your boat glides through the canal/s ...! Do not go expecting a sight - or even glimpse - of the Tiger, though! We did not see one throughout the trip, but that was fine ... the sighting... More

While I enjoyed my 3 day/2 night trip into the forest from Mongla, I wouldn't rate it the top attraction in BD, as do many people. We saw very few animals, mostly deer and a few birds. While I had no expectations of seeing a tiger, it was interesting to note that our boat operator had only seen a dozen... More
