Sunderban National Wildlife Park

The two mighty Indian rivers Ganga and Brahmaputra get divided into a large number of distributaries and form a vast swampy delta at the southern tip of West Bengal before finally joining the Bay of Bengal. The delta has a large number of mangrove forests and tiny islands numbering about 54. A major portion of this area is the Sunderban National Park.

The Sunderban National Park named after the Sundari trees which are found in abundance in this region covers an area of 1340 sq km approximately. Other kinds of trees that are found in this region are Garjan, Dhundal, Kankra, and Passur. Interestingly the roots of the dense mangrove (sundari) trees shoot out of the water level.

There are about 200 majestic Royal Bengal Tigers in the Sunderban National Park. The estuarine crocodile is also occasionally sighted. It also houses the Ridley sea turtle. A sizeable population of the Sunderban National Park comprises of River Terrapin, Crabs, Monitor Lizard, Indian Python and Mollusks.

The truth is that nothing can be more exciting than touring this wildlife sanctuary which is also a world heritage site in a launch. The cruises in these luxury launches through the kharris are indeed a very memorable experience. It is best to plan such trips in the months of September to March.

The Vivada cruise is indeed very thrilling. You should not miss out on seeing the mighty Royal Bengal Tiger in these dense mysterious forests.
