Into the Jungle: Sundarbans & Bagerhat

  6 days / 5 nights
  No minimum pax

Cruise into the UNESCO World Heritage jungle.

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.

Day 1: We start in the afternoon from our guesthouse or your hotel to Saderghat, the main port of Dhaka, where we board one of the launches (long-distance cabin ship) or the famous Rocker Steamer towards Sundarbans.

Day 2: Around 9AM, we will reach our boat landing point, Hularhat, and after breakfast, we will continue our journey to Bagerhat for the famous Sixty Dome Mosque. But, there are also many more gems hiding between scenic rice paddies and picturesque villages along the way for us to enjoy. After lunch, we head to Mongla where you will stay the night.

Day 3: We will board a cruise boat for our journey to the Sundarbans, a UNESCO-protected jungle and the largest mangrove forest in the world. On the way, we will make a short visit to a small eco-village to get a glimpse of the community's lifestyle and culture. We end our day in Kotka for an overnight stay.

Day 4: We will explore the Sundarbans by foot-trail (at least two different routes) to enjoy the wildlife of this world heritage forest. Try to spot the elusive Royal Bengal tiger while covorting with monkeys, deers, flying foxes, 270 endemic species of bird, and many more.

Day 5: We will visit Harbaria eco-tourist park and head to the watch tower for amazing views before taking the afternoon river cruise back to Mongla. We will stay overnight in Khulna.

Day 6: We take the early morning train to Dhaka, where you will arrive around 5pm. We will say goodbye and wish you a happy journey to your next destination. As we say in Bangla, Abar Ashben!
