SUNDARBANS PRIVATE DAY TOUR | SUNDARBANS TOUR IN 1 DAY

SUNDARBANS PRIVATE DAY TOUR - WHAT TO EXPECT

Sundarbans Private day Tour has been christened "SUNDARBANS TOUCH AND GO" by India Beacons Sojourn due to the hectic nature of the tour, which starts at 5:30 a.m in the morning and ends around 19:30 - 20:00 hrs.

This One day Tour of Sundarban would just give you a fair idea of the Sundarbans Mangrove forest, the Sundarbans Delta and the Sundarban National park as in the limited time, we visit the three top attractions, ie the watch towers of Sajnekhali and Sudhanyakhali.

However, as a word of caution, due to the long journey time involved, one should try to avail this Sundarban Day tour only when one is hard pressed for time.

We also modify and customize your Sundarbans Private Day Tour to suit the length of time you have in hand as well as keeping in mind the arrival and departure timings of your train or flight.

SUNDERBANS DAY TOUR ITINERARY

Day Tour Sundarban - Start Time:: 5:30 hrs


Your Sunderban day tour starts with your pickup from Kolkata at 5:30 A.M in an exclusive AC vehicle that drives you through rural Bengal from Kolkata to Godhkhali, a journey covered in about 3:00 to 3:30 hrs.

Arrival at Godhkhali: 9:00 hrs

Upon arrival at Godhkhali, the Gateway to the Sundarbans, we walk down to the Godhkhali jetty where you would board our waiting steamer.

Whet your taste buds with freshly prepared breakfast which would be served on the Boat/Steamer upon your arrival at Godhkhali. Thereafter, your rendezvous with the World's largest mangrove forest and the Sunderbans National Park begins as the steamer cruises down the rivers Durgaduani, Hogil, Gomar and Gumdi and you would reach the Sajnekhali Watchtower in about an hour and a half.
 
Try your luck to view wildlife from the Sajnekhali watchtower. Also visit the Sajnekhali Museum, The River Terrapin(Batagur Baska) Tortoise Hatching pond and the Mangrove Interpretation Centre.

Thereafter, enjoy the thrill of this One Day tour of Sundarban by cruising deep through the narrow creeks of the “Indian Amazon” as India Beacons calls it and also around the islands of the Sunderban Tiger Project Area. Let yourself be guided by our Naturalist and Guide to view the Mangrove forest as well as a large varieties of flora and fauna from close quarters, deep inside the creeks of Sarak Khali.

Next you would visit the Sudhanyakhali Watch Tower. Thereafter cruise through the rivers and narrow creeks enjoying a lovely birding experience. If you are lucky, you may come across crocodiles, spotted dear, wild boars, Jungle cat, water monitor, as well as the Elusive Royal Bengal Tiger. 


IMPORTANT TIPS:

Optional  visit can be the Dobanki Watchtower. The canopy walk at Do Banki gives you an opportunity to view wildlife from a netted enclosure.
