About Sunderbans and Sundarban Tour
The Sundarban National Park is the largest delta region of the world i.e. the Bay of Bengal. It is also the largest single block of tidal mangrove forest. The UNESCO has declared this reserve forest as a World Heritage Site. The forest lies in the mouth of the vast confluence of three major River system of India viz. the Ganges, Brahmaputra and Meghna. The Sundarbans is intersected by a complex network of tidal waterways, mudflats and small islands of salt-tolerant mangrove forests. The unique interconnected network of waterways makes almost every corner of the forest accessible by boat. This mangrove forest is home to the renowned Royal Tiger of Bengal (Panthera tigris tigris) and also many species of birds, spotted deer, crocodiles and snakes. The forest not only breeds its wildlife species but it also has been a fertile cradle of civilization to humans as well for many centuries. Presently, the eco-region has very little forest cover left because of the extensive use of fertile agricultural lands by people. An interesting fact about the Sunderban Forest is that it derives its name from the Sundari trees that flourish in that forest region.
