This tour is not for the light hearted. It is a difficult trip from Dhaka down to Mongla,no matter what method you use to ge here. But once we were on the boat and heading into the mangrove forest it didn't matter. This is a place to get away from everything, literally everything. It is so utterly peacefully cruising the...

It was a nice experience and any one can remember for his whole life. Full day on water was all total a nice experience. Sunderban is richest for its Mangrove including >80 types and with Royal Bengal tiger is gift of nature to us.

A wonderful place to visit where one can feel free to have fresh air & enjoy the thrill of watching nature's wonder. The largest mangrove forest could be the wonders of the world but lack of proper care ruining its beauty. There are several tour operators & all of them are efficient to please you. But one needs to be... More

We visited Sunderban's Indian side which is in West Bengal. This was a 4 days/3 nights camp with BNHS (Bharat Natural History Society.) Two complete days i.e. 4 days/3 nights is minimum stay I would recommend. Do not have high hopes of spotting tigers. Focus should be to enjoy unique kind of Safari in motor boat. Lots of mangroves, birds,... More

Sunderbans can be approached from Indian territory mainly West Bengal. Although many private operators r thriving to populate this thrilling tourism but we advice to take a 2D/1N tour run by West Bengal tourism dept which is worth a trip on a motor boat having facility to sleep the night out in the same. Its surprising that WBT has maintained... More

The place is good. The tropical mangroves are beautiful. A whole different forest and a landscape. Boats can be hired. the boats are decent. Spottting tigers is next to impossible because of the thick mangroves. A whole lot to be learnt. A myriad variety of animals. The real fun is in the rainy season. 2 hrs from Kolkata.

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
