The Sundarbans is a cluster of low-lying islands in the Bay of Bengal, spread across India and Bangladesh, famous for its unique mangrove forests. Sundarbans means “beautiful forests,” but the region may also have been named after the large number of Sundari trees that grow there in the salty coastal waters. This active delta region is among the largest in the world, measuring about 40,000 sq km. It is also home to is home to many rare and globally threatened wildlife species such as the estuarine crocodile, royal Bengal tiger , Water monitor lizard , Gangetic dolphin and Olive Ridley turtle. The star attraction is the Royal Bengal tiger. Around 400 of these magnificent creatures call the Sundarbans home, making this the largest single population of tigers on earth. Despite their reputation as man-eaters, they are extremely difficult to spot, but the thrill of trying to track one down is hard to compete with. And even if you see none, simply sitting on the deck of your boat as you float through thick mangrove forests is an unforgettably dreamy experience.
