India may have a myriad of exciting wildlife destinations located throughout its length and breadth but one place that offers a pristine and riveting environment, not just for the animals but also for the visitors is the beautiful Sundarban National Park.
It derived its name from a Mangrove plant called Sundari which is found in abundance here. Numerous creeks and tributaries, waterways, and islands make Sundarbans the most attractive and alluring National Park of India. It is also one of the most unique and large mangrove ecosystems in the world.
This most famous UNESCO World Heritage Site is an ideal place to see wildlife at its best and is widely popular for the beautiful orange-black striped Royal Bengal Tigers. Besides, this national park which consists of 102 islands on the Indian side also houses various small enclosures such as crocodile and turtle farms, and there are wildlife museums as well as watchtowers. You can also find a few wildlife sanctuaries located in the Sundarban Islands of Lothian and Halliday which add so much to your Sundarban Wildlife tour.
