Sundarban Day Tour|Sunderban One Day Tour

SUNDARBANS "TOUCH AND GO"
 

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM SUNDARBAN DAY TOUR :-

  • This trip 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  20:30 - 21:00 hrs.
  • This tour would just give you a fair idea of the Sundarbans Mangrove forest and the Sundarban National park as we visit the three top attractions ,ie the watch towers of Sajnekhali, Sudhanyakhali and Dobanki. However, as a word of caution, due to the long journey time involved, one should try to avail this tour only when one is hard pressed for time. 
  • We also modify and customize your 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:

 
Start Time :: 5:30 hrs
Your Sundarban day tour starts with your pickup from Kolkata at 5:30 A.M in an exclusive vehicle that drives you through rural Bengal 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 Hogil, Gomar, Durgaduni 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 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.
Last on our list would be the Dobanki Watchtower. The canopy walk at Do Banki gives you an opportunity to view wildlife from a netted enclosure. 
Important Tip: 
You may also opt against visiting Dobanki Watch Tower and instead crisscross the narrow creeks and canals of Sundarbans which offer lovely scenic beauty and a chance for an encounter with the Royal Bengal Tiger.
After Dobanki, we depart for Godhkhali and reach Godhkhali at around 17:00 hrs. 
Departure from Godhkhali :: 17:00 hrs
We bid adieu to Sundarbans and start our return journey to Kolkata by surface transfer.
