It reminds me of my *Sunderban Trip*of 2015 and i will say it was one of the best ~Nature Retreat Trip~ i have ever had with two nights on islands and three days spent almost on water roaming from one island to another.
Dedicated to all *Nature Lovers*
That was in October 2015 and my long cherished dream of visiting “Sunderbans”came to happen ultimately.
We reached Canning from Kolkata by hired vehicle after travelling for say 60 to 65 km only & from there our Tour operator took charge of us.We were altogether 6 adults and a kid.
It was a package 📦 tour and all the meals during the voyage and night stay at different islands 🌴 were including food 🥘 and accommodations.
It was a real delight to watch passing by boat/ship from a distance with limitless water behind.For non-vegetarians it was a real delight with local fish 🐟 fries served with sauce and different veg varieties were served too on board.
The first day was spent on the boat well equipped with minimum required amenities watching the Sundarban delta from one island to other and at the evening we took rest at “Pakhiara islands.
The stay and fooding in the Island Resort at Pakhiara was equally palatable with some musical programme by localities showing their “cultural heritage” based around life in Sundarban islands and their constant fear of “Royal Bengal tigers”for which…“Sundarbans is most famous World wide”
Watching birds 🐦 like Egrets and so many other varieties against lash green background is a memory for ever.On the 2nd day after breakfast 🍳 at the resort we were taken by Steamer Boat 🚢 to some different islands mostly famous for sighting “Royal Bengal Tigers 🐯“.
Getting a glimpse of these rare Tigers was a matter of chance which we were not lucky enough.
“Red crabs 🦀” on the marshy water were so rare to be seen in most other places but it was a possibility there.
It’s really Rarest of rare….”Yello crab 🦀 with Red crab” Combo.
Every turn and twist were so scenic that i couldn’t stop myself but clicked few awesome shots.
Ships of “Bangladesh crossing International water body-really rare scenic view.
The entire journey , the food , and scenic Marshy land was a real memory to cherish.On the 2nd evening s “Tribal Dance” typical to those islands were performed by the localites.
Blue crabs 🦀 to be honest I never had encountered before in my life(Shiny Fluorescent Blue).
Getting a glimpse of Golden Spotted deer 🦌from steamer really made our day.
Their main mode of transport from one island to another is only boats.
Though Black drongo I had seen before many a times in our plane lands but these “species of Drongos” were unique to Sundarban’s.
Mudskipper of giant sizes a real beauty in their natural habitat(Mangroove forest)
“Water monitor Lizards 🦎” though not so easy to get a in most other places but it was a real memory watching a Luzards coming out from bushes and crossing the water.
It was a trip of “2 nights and 3 days” rich with “scenic Sundarbans” with it’s unique curves full of “Fauna & Flora” just unique to this “geographical location”.
How to reach Sunderbans:
These days every form of informations related to Sundarban trips is well available on internet and there are a very good number of private Tour operators apart from Govt of West Bengal Tourism dept.Kolkata being a Metro city is well connected from most parts of the world.

You’re most welcome.
The crabs were fascinating! Awesome pics. Did you get to see the majestic RBT? I have heard so many tales in news of them snatching the victims from the boats… irs scary
Ranjeetra to be honest we were for 3 days there in water but really a luck to get them and next time i am planning to go to the CORE ares with special Govt of Bengal permission
Be careful… that’s where they strike the most. And they are excellent in water whereas we are powerless
Yes i know……
