Bangladesh Life: The Sundarbans

Home of the Royal Bengal Tiger & 
The Largest Mangrove Forest


The Sundarbans are the largest littoral mangrove belt in the world, stretching 80km (50mi) into the Bangladeshi hinterland from the coast. The forests aren't just mangrove swamps though, they include some of the last remaining stands of the mighty jungles which once covered the Gangetic plain. The Sundarbans cover an area of 38,500 sq km, of which about one-third is covered in water. Since 1966 the Sundarbans have been a wildlife sanctuary, and it is estimated that there are now 400 Royal Bengal tigers and about 30,000 spotted deer in the area.


The park is also home to sea gypsy fishing families who catch fish using trained otters. To see this pristine environment, you need to get a permit from the Divisional Forest Office in Khulna. With permit in hand, it's possible to hire a boat from Mongla or Dhangmari to get you to Hiron Point. From Hiron Point you will have to hire a guide to take you into the park.


Sundarbans is home to many different species of birds, mammals, insects, reptiles and fishes. Over 120 species of fish and over 260 species of birds have been recorded in the Sundarbans. The Gangetic River Dolphin (Platanista gangeticus) is common in the rivers. No less than 50 species of reptiles and eight species of amphibians are known to occur. The Sundarbans now support the only population of the Estuarine, or Salt-Water Crocodile (Crocodylus parasus) in Bangladesh, and that population is estimated at less than two hundred individuals.



Here land and water meet in many novel fashions, Wildlife presents many a spectacle. No wonder, you may come across a Royal Bengal Tiger swimming across the streams or the crocodiles basking on the river banks. With the approach of the evening herds of deer make for the darking glades where boisterous monkeys shower Keora leaves from above for sumptuous meal for the former. For the botanist, the lover of nature, the poet and the painter this land provides a variety of wonder for which they all crave.


It's beauty lies in its unique natural surrounding. Thousands of meandering streams, creeks, rivers and estuaries have enhanced its charm. Sundarbans meaning beautiful forest is the natural habitat of the world famous Royal Bengal Tiger, spotted deer, crocodiles, jungle fowl, wild boar, lizards, theses monkey and an innumerable variety of beautiful birds. Migratory flock of Siberian ducks flying over thousands of sail boats loaded with timber, golpatta (round-leaf), fuel wood, honey, shell and fish further add to the serene natural beauty of the Sundarbans.


This is indeed a land for the sportsmen, the anglers and the photographers with its abundance of game, big and small, crocodile, wild boar, deer, pythons, wild-birds and above all the Royal Bengal Tiger, cunning, ruthless and yet majestic and graceful, For the less adventurously inclined, there are ducks and snipes, herons and coots, yellow-lags and sandpipers. It is also the land for the ordinary holiday makers who desire to rest or wander around at will to refresh their mind and feast their eyes with the rich treasure that nature has so fondly bestowed.

  7. The Sundarbans is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The mangrove habitat supports the single largest population of tigers in the world, which have adapted to an almost amphibious life, being capable of swimming for long distances and feeding on fish, crab and water monitor lizards. The wildlife sanctuary is currently under threat from the proposed Power Company project. Planting mangroves is a way of restoring this wildlife sanctuary. Grow-trees.com has taken up a project which involves them in planting 100,000 trees at the periphery of the Sundarbans National Park. Plant trees with Grow-Trees.com to help restore the Tiger reserve and save the Tiger.

  10. If you wish to revive from the monotony of robotic way of life, if you ever want to feel the living reality of the idiom ‘when it rains, it pours’ Bangladesh is the right place to be to travel. Bangladesh offers a numbers of tourist attractions. Entire area of the country offers you different topography, culture and customs, traditional foods and drinks. There are Three World Heritage site in Bangladesh. They are the Historical ancient Mosque Shat Gombuj Mosque at Bagerhat, the Core of the Buddhist Mahabihara at Paharpur, Bogra and the last one is the Sundarban , located in the southern part of Bangladesh. The region’s one of the major significant geographical feature is the world longest Sandy Sea Beach (Cox’s Bazar) lining tile internal eastern coastline of Bangladesh, Starting at the Cox’s Bazar, the white illusive sands stretches all the way down to the Taknaf Peninsula, Poking up again briefly at the coral reef island of Saint Martin’s. Mostly the beach is undeveloped except at Cox’s Bazar where native mangrove forests have long been replaced by the jungles of Tourist Hotels.

  20. The pollution that happens as a consequence of contact with the dead typically speaks to the contamination that happens inside an Initiate's Soul in the event that it stays in contact with "dead" parts of oneself. Any remainder of the old method for being must be yielded, and any contact with dead parts of the spirit must be cleansed in the flames of the heart, in the fiery debris of the Mother who has "kicked the bucket" to discharge the spirit from the domain of fantasy, similar to the Celestial Aphrodite who unbinds consummated souls from their bodies and discharges them into ecstasy.DCITAPPS
