The Beauty of Sundarban Tourism

Sundarbans - The word that was originated from the Sundari Trees found in that area. It's not like the Amazon rainforest, it's more of a swampy place surrounded by light dense fog. The most noticeable figure is the Royal Bengal Tiger.

A little information about Sundarbans will help you to get the idea of what it is actually. It is one of the largest deltas in the world. Its coastal reaches are surrounded by thick mangroves that bind the soil together. The geological area of Sundarban is formed by the confluence of three rivers.

They are as follows -
  1. The Ganga,
  2. The Brahmaputra, and,
  3. The Meghna.
From another perspective the area is deemed to be a wildlife sanctuary which covers an estimated area of 2585 sq km. The area is so huge that it actually lies between two neighboring countries.India and Bangladesh both share the same land on which Sundarban stands. The area also forms the world's largest estuarine delta. The water channels carry saline water and deposit heavy amounts of silt down the river. There are no waterfalls in the region so the river usually loses all the steam. The water are really slow moving with negligible turbulence during normal seasons.

Sunderbans is home to over 270 Royal Bengal Tigers that are complimented by spotted deers, monkeys, wild boars, kingfishers and special types of eagles that have white bellies underneath their body.

The alluvial deposits forms a section of 54 islands which in other words forms an archipelago.
