"Wildlife Destination of the Indian Subcontinent"

Located in the state of West Bengal in a region that borders Bangladesh, the Sundarban National Park is named after the bounty of Sundari trees that cloak the estuarine mangroves of this phenomenal park. This densely-wooded expanse sits at the brink of the world's largest delta, born of the union of India's major rivers – the Ganges, Brahmaputra and Meghna. The estuarine boundaries of the forest are lined with swathes of mangrove trees that bend over its lip, shrouding parts of the forest in a grey hue. The Sundarban is especially famous for the fabled Bengal Tiger that swims through its dark waters, a skill that its breed has mastered over several generations. Around 400 of these regal cats saunter through the thick scope of the park and can be seen basking in the morning sun from November to February. Other creatures like leopards, wild boars, the Indian grey mongoose and foxes also abound in these stunning mangrove drapes. The Sundarbans are also a major reptilian territory – saltwater crocodiles skim the delta's surface, while monitor lizards crawling around the forest floor freely. Bearing a fascinating coastal terrain, the Sundarbans park was inscribed a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1987.
