The official comments on the Subarbans
The Sundarban Forest is a diverse and complex ecosystem, influenced by fresh-water inflow, proximity to the Bay of Bengal and human activities.
The Sundarbans mangrove
"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."
Nick's version of the Sundarbans
Awsome, experience, cruised on a great little boat with 8 cabins, quiet mornings being rowed up the tidal creeks looking for wild life, fresh fish, saw Dolphins, crocodiles, monkeys, wild boar, deer, monitor lizards, untold numbers of exotic birds. Missed the bengal tigers by two weeks.
This is a bucket list experience
