  • Sundarbans in the largest mangrove forest on earth and a UNESCO world heritage site. Sundarbans is located in between two neighboring countries – Bangladesh and India. Majority of the forest is located in Bangladesh. It is home of the last remaining Bengal tigers in the world and many other wildlife. Environment of Sundarbans is tranquilizing and visiting this forest could be an once in a lifetime experience. That is why Sundarbans comes as number one on our list of the best places to visit in Bangladesh.
  • Sundarbans is a magical place! I visited Sundarbans in July. Unfortunately, there were no group tours available at this time because it was low season. I luckily found Arranger Tours & Travels in Khulna that arranged a 2 day tour for me. We used local transport to get there and the journey was a real adventure! Driving through the countryside and the rural villages was amazing. We stayed at a little cottage which was awesome and so peaceful. Unfortunately, I couldn't see so many animals because of the rainy season. Nevertheless, it was definitely worth it! The very experienced and friendly team of Arranger Tours & Travels made this trip unforgettable!
  • I took with Bengal Tours a three day boot trip into the Sundarbans. We traveled with their smaller boot - we have been 21 passengers. I did enjoy the trip. The wildlife, the views and the food where great. The facilities on the boat are ok but quite basic - the cabins are really small and instead of showers we had just washrooms. The exhaustion system of the boot is not working well. So it was not bearable to sit in the sitting area on the roof - where also the food is served. The noise there was above 95 decibel! I definitely would recommend a trip to the Sundarbans. You have to be careful to take a smaller vessel and you have to be lucky with the group - because if they are not quite in the forest you will not see anything.
  • The Sundarbans mangrove forest, one of the largest such forests in the world (140,000 ha), lies on the delta of the Ganges, Brahmaputra and Meghna rivers on the Bay of Bengal. It is adjacent to the border of India’s Sundarbans World Heritage site inscribed in 1987. The site is intersected by a complex network of tidal waterways, mudflats and small islands of salt-tolerant mangrove forests, and presents an excellent example of ongoing ecological processes. The area is known for its wide range of fauna, including 260 bird species, the Bengal tiger and other threatened species such as the estuarine crocodile and the Indian python.
  • It is the most amazing forest n very terrific place ...once in your life u should visit .and u will find a natural earth ,,,where animals are in power....
