There is only one way to navigate the complex network of rivers and estuaries in the Sundarbans via boat. Tour guides point out the rich mammal and marine life of the swamp, but to see the elusive Royal Bengal tiger you’ll have to be perched on a watchtower deep inside in the jungle.
The mesmerizing woods of Sunderban are the natural heaven for ardent wildlife lovers and nature admirers.
Expect to catch a glimpse of the fishing cat, leopard cat, rhesus macaque, wild boar, Indian grey mongoose, flying fox, pangolin, and chital. Winter is also a good time to spot the saltwater crocodile, the king crab, snakes and monitor lizard .Here, the tiger is truly the phantom of the forest.
In the Sundarbans, Nature dictates the rhythm of life. Go, if you’re willing to toe her line.
