Hi,

You will need armed forest guard in some area of sundarban and it is nothing but a routine security and it is applicable for all Bangladeshi people too. Guards are widely available in govt's forest office in sundarban with a minimum charge . ( so far I can remember it is 4 or 5 USD for a day.)

If you are visiting with any tour company they will arrange these for you.Or you can arrange by your self, it is not a hard job.

If you want to chose a tour operator , I will suggest the following companies:

Enjoy your trip.

But tourist entrance rate are not same. Local tourist rate is arround Tk. 100 day/tourist and foreigner rate is Tk. 850 day/tourist. For all tourist must be collected prior permission before entrance except daylong trip.

They will permit you go alone without security. So you must take security guard or join with any tour group.

by the by; you are alone or some persons?
