Sundarban Package, the best way to visit the largest mangrove of the world.
Our state, West Bengal offers a wide range of diverse destinations, including mountain, forest, sea-beach and other natural wonders. One of the wonders is the largest mangrove forest of the Sunderban area with the Royal Bengal Tiger along with other wild animals, birds and reptiles. The trip to Sunderban is itself an adventure that gets magnified with a package tour of 2 nights and 3 days, covering most of the attractions of the place and surrounding areas. The cruise through the river Matla with the scenic beauty of the green mangrove forest is an amazing view and lifelong experience.
