Sundarbans, West Bengal

#10 of 61 in Nature in West Bengal
World Heritage Site Sundarbans spreads over 10,000 sq m (3,900 sq mi) and is the largest tidal saltmarsh mangrove forest in the world. Literally translated as 'beautiful forest' from the Bengali language, the protected forest shelters crocodiles, monkeys, turtles and around 400 Bengali Tigers, the largest reserve to protect the endangered beast. Take a boat tour along the river past submerged trees and admire the forest canopy and wildlife within. Boat trips often provide food and refreshments along the way, and remember to wear mosquito repellent. Plan your visit to Sundarbans and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Tarakeswar online sightseeing planner.
