Things to Do in Sundarban

  • Visit the watchtowers: 

    The Sundarban National Park tour is famous for its animal sightings and it is from the watchtowers where you can get the best views of the forest. There are several watchtowers constructed throughout the national park region, and based on the animal sightings they are famous for, you can plan to visit them.

  • Go for a boat safari:

The tribes in the region have their own deities, cultural practices, and even cuisine.
