About 4hrs after leaving Khulna our boat shed its drive shaft deep into the waters of the Sunderbans. Whilst stranded we explored the side canals for the first time and were treated to crocodiles, monkeys, kites, woodpeckers and the absolute quiet and stillness of being away from everything (although thankfully just in mobile phone range!). After about 6 hours stranded... More

Not visit Sundarban would indeed be a mistake. Three days spent on the ship was one of the nicest in Bangladesh. Tiger, of course, forget it certainly will not see. But a number of crocodiles, deers, birds and various inherent monkeys. You will be well taken care of and your only obligation is to enjoy life colonists of the British... More

explore creeks and canals by country boats to see wild-life and birds in Kotka forest.Hiking deep inside the forest toward Kotka beach. Spend some time in the beach and return to the boat. Start cruising toward Kochikhali Wild-life Sanctuary. Upon arrival, hiking in the forest rest of the day.

It was a travel with Golpat Eco Tours , not only a trip by boat but also a community based tour. We enjoyed a true village people life with a nice local cultural program also. We came to know about the life of the peoples inside the forest area. Fully satisfied with the tours.

As a nature lover, you might have visited many white sand beaches, beautiful landscapes, mountains and what not. Sundarbans will give you a unique experience of wilderness. When the keeper of the territory is such a magnificent beast, you can feel the rawness of Mother Nature in every bit of it. And you won't even feel like sneezing to keep... More

My guide, Mostafa, told me of his tiger sighting so I was optimistic that I'd see this magnificent creature while I visited the Sundarban. I did see a paw print during my walking tour so maybe not seeing a tiger was a good thing considering I had an armed guard with me while exploring on land (not to shoot the... More

I have visited twice! If I could, I would visit Sundarban each and every year! It's worth visiting. The beauty of the forest can't be explainable in words.In addition to that you will see lots of colorful birds,deer, crocodile etc and who knows may be the Royal Bengal Tiger. Also you will also have the opportunity to visit the sea... More

I have been there 4 times, each on about 4/5 days trip. As a Bangladeshi, I am immensely proud of this absolutely gorgeous natural beauty. In case anyone wants to make trip plans, I would highly recommend The Guide Tours Ltd. Their boat trip packages are the best in Bangladesh. I am also very happy to share my experiences, and... More
