Topography & Vegetation of Sunderbans National Park

Topography & Vegetation of Sunderbans National Park

Sunderbans forest sprawls over an area of around 10,000 km2 from India to Bangladesh, the park is located in an area of around 1400 km2 and is a water-logged jungle. Its ever-changing topography, due to tidal waterways & silt deposits, is dotted with little islands, sandbars, mudflats, and mangrove swamps. The thick tangles of Sundari trees, an endangered mangrove species, lend the forest its name. Sunderbans abound with around 26 species of salt-tolerant mangroves.

Boat Safari in Sundarbans National Park

The only way to navigate through Sunderbans National Park is on a boat. One of the most unique & adventurous experiences in India, Sunderbans Boat Safari takes you through many creeks and tributaries that wander into the thick mangrove jungles. Do keep your senses at alert for the tigers lurking in the forest. Listen to the birdsong, spot the saltwater crocodiles sunning on the mudflats, and lucky ones might get to see a tiger roaming the banks or swimming gracefully across the creeks.

- Memorable Experience !

Caper Travel designed a three week tour to Rajasthan and Goa for four of us in a private car during March. The driver, guides and everyone associated with the organisation were professional, reliable and punctual! We had an amazing time, made even better because of the good accomodation choices and extra additions, such as elephant and camel ride.
Thank you so much Caper for giving us a truly memorable experience of your beautiful country!
