Tour Duration : 5 Days
The Sundarbans forest, the largest mangrove forest in the world (nominated for 7 wonders) is situated in the south-west corner of Bangladesh. The total area of the Sundarbans reserved forest including the West Bengal portion, comprises of 10,000 sq. km., of which Bangladesh portion is approximately 6000 sq.km. It is famous as the habitat for its semi-aquatic tigers, popularly known as the Royal Bengal Tiger. It has a fair amount of spotted deer, wild boar, rhesus monkey, salt-water crocodile, water monitor lizard, pythons, etc. The forest treasures 330 plant species, 35 species of reptiles, 400 types of fishes, 270 species of birds and 42 species of mammals. The Bengal tiger, biggest of the cat family, plays a very important role in the forest ecology as well as in the rich mythology and legend. As if these won`t be enough– there`s the naive lifestyle of the fishermen and demanding way of works of the forest rangers. Or you could catch yourself a fun ride by a small boat, if you are inclined to having more adventure.
Guest will visit to The Sixty Dome Mosque; a UNESCO world heritage site that is situated in Bangladesh. It is the largest mosque in the country from the Sultanate period. It has been described as “the most impressive Muslim monuments in the whole of the Indian subcontinent.”
