Forest & Jungles in Bangladesh

.: Sundarbans
Royal Bengal Tiger in World’s largest Mangrove forests

Sundarbans: The Home of Royal Bengal Tiger
Located about 320 km. south-west of Dhaka and spread over an area of about 60000 sq. km of deltaic swamps along the coastal belt of Khulna, Bangladesh's Sundarbans (beautiful forests) is famous for the world's largest expanse of mangrove forest, and the home of the Royal Bengal tiger. These dense mangrove forests are criss-crossed by a network of rivers and creeks.
Tourists find tides flowing in two directions in the same creek and often tigers swimming across a river or huge crocodiles basking in the sun. Other wildlife of the region includes the cheetahs, beautiful spotted deer, monkeys, pythons, wild bears and hyenas. The forest is accessible by river from Khulna or from Mongla. There are rest-houses for visitors to stay and enjoy the unspoiled beauty and splendour of the forest.

Sundarbans importance is recognised by the United Nations as a World Heritage Site and as one of the last refuse for the majestic Royal Bengal Tiger. Sundarbans has the potential to offer splendid opportunities for tourism. The main tourist spots inside the Sundarbans include Hiron Point (Nilkamal), Katka and Tri Kona Island. These places offer the best vantage points for watching tigers, deer, monkeys, crocodiles and birds. Another major attraction inside the Sundarbans is Dublachar (island), a fishing village. Herds of spotted deer often come to graze here.

Private motor launches, speed boats, country boats as well as mechanised vessels of Mongla Port Authority offer regular services on these routes. From Dhaka to Khulna the most enjoyable journey is by paddle steamer ‘Rocket’ that offers visitors a picturesque panorama of rural Bangladesh. Day and night coach services by road are also available.
