The Sundarbans, Bangladesh

June 8, 2008-June 14, 2008

The Sundarbans is a mangrove forest found at the delta of the Ganges, Brahmaputra and Meghna rivers on the Bay of Bengal. Together with the neighboring Sundarbans National Park in West Bengal, India, it is the largest single block of tidal mangrove forest in the world. The Sundarbans’ area is approximately 6,000 square kilometers. It is intersected by a complex network of tidal waterways, mudflats and islets of saltwater mangrove forests.

Literally means “beautiful jungle” or “beautiful forest”, the Sundarbans is home to the renowned yet endangered royal Bengal tiger as well as to the threatened estuarine crocodile, spotted deer and Indian python. 260 bird species are also found living or migrating in the area which include the blue-eared kingfisher.

In 1997, the UNESCO inscribed it as a World Heritage Site of natural property.

I think If you are visiting Bangladesh, a visit to the Sundarban mangrove forest is a must. It is so much more than an escape from the city life - it is a dream in green. This is not only the world's largest single block of mangrove, but also the one with the highest biodiversity.
