As the world's largest mangrove forest, the Sundarbans is home to 453 species of wildlife. Venture into the depths of the jungle, marvel at the roots of the millenia-old trees, and surround yourself with the sounds of nature. We don't think you'll see a Royal Bengal Tiger (anyone who says so is lying), but our guests have reported seeing dolphins, deer, flying foxes, monkeys, charismatic birds, and yes, tiger footprints.
Begin your journey on the famous Rocker Steamer for a quintessential Bangladesh experience. Visit the unique Sixty Dome Mosque in Bagerhat. Then, take a three-day cruise into the Sundarbans. Explore by foot and by river cruise via Harbaria eco-tourism park. You're guaranteed to remember both the journey and the destination.If you love...
