4 Things You Must Do In Sunderbans during Weekend Gateway

West Bengal is undoubtedly a treasure trove for the passionate travelers who love to have a brush with the tiny yet enticing and offbeat things of mundane life. And this obviously includes art and culture, history and heritage, natural beauty and of course wilderness – and West Bengal is just the perfect combination of all these traits. Be it the capital – Kolkata, Shantiniketan, Darjeeling or Sunderbans – the state has a lot to offer to the adventurous travelers.

Sunderban – A small note

Let’s talk about Sunderbans as of now. Sunderbans, also called as Sunderban, is a Bengali word that refers to a ‘beautiful forest’. And yes, Suderban is beautiful – Suderban is dangerously beautiful. It’s not a commonplace green-retreat – it is the biggest mangrove forest in the world. It is the key habitat of a number of rare and endangered animal species including birds, reptiles and mammals. And when it comes to mammals, we must talk about one of the most prominent and gorgeous members of the Cat family – The Royal Bengal Tiger. They are really royal in their look, appearance, movements, actions and everything. Besides Suderban offers a rare flora community that includes Sundari – a mangrove species which the forest is basically named after.

Must to do in Sunderban

There is no dearth of natural beauty in Sunderban. But there are a couple of things that you must not miss during your trip to Sunderban. Here is a brief list of some of them.

  1. Spotting tigers at Sunderban National Park

This UNESCO Heritage site is the key reason for a traveler to visit the somber forest. This is the core area of the Tiger Reserve and consists of countless canals, islands, waterways and creeks. Here you have to go on a boat cruise for sightings. The journey is mesmerizing yet uncanny as you wander through the waterways surrounded by dense forest. You can plan your trip to Sunderban throughout the year, but September to March would be the best time to explore the beauty of Sunderban.

2. Bird watching in Sajnekhali Bird Sanctuary

This is an unruffled river island located in the heart of Sunderban – it’s like a paradise for the birder-watchers, and undoubtedly a glistering feather in Sunderban’s cap. There’s a watch tower in this eco-friendly sanctuary to spot over 200 birds including sandpipers, plovers, herons etc.

3. Visiting Netidhopani

The place is famous for its picturesque lake and a watch tower from where you can view the remains of centuries old Shiva temple, which has got almost a pilgrimage status with a number of worshippers.

4. Walking with the turtles at Kanak

This is surely going to be a great experience. The Kanak Island in Sunderban is the nesting reserve for Olive Ridley turtles. They travel almost 100 km. inland from the sea to lay eggs here. December to March is the nesting season of the turtles. If you come during this time, you can definitely walk with them.
