The name has been derived from two schools of thought. Sundari - a plant found in the local mangroves and Ban - meaning forest yet some believe it simply means Beautiful Forest - Sunder meaning beautiful and Ban meaning forest. This grove is definitely beautiful, matching up to its name. The world’s most extensive mangrove forests with pristine sea beach and the innumerable islands are something to observe. The dense expanse with chirping birds, deer, monkeys and Royal Bengal Tigers will irresistibly attract visitors. The attractions are manifold but the ambience created by the green dense growth, blue overhead, the vast stretches of sea with tide and the ebb and the splendor of the Sundarbans are mesmerizing. It has always been mysterious to the nature lover, scientists, researchers and tourists. Sundarban Package for weekend is available with us
