All you need to know is that it’s possible to feel the waters, the nature and the wildlife at once and to feel all this “ Sundarbans the mysterious mangroves ” is the best place on earth to visit .
I am not going to indulge myself into the arithmetic of how many animals , birds , reptiles etc exist there . You can find all these details in the Wikipedia . Rather I would like to speak about the journey I experienced there .
The everyday life of a sundarban resident generally revolves around two things : the tide and the tiger , but peoples like us who lives in cities are not aware of these things . So to experience this tides and in an hope to see the Royal Bengal Tiger I packed by backpack and took an 3:30 hours road journey and then 1 hours journey by boat to reach Sundarbans
On the 6th day of February , I booked my journey for the mangroves with a tour company called Tour De Sundarbans . They organises group tours to sundarbans . It was an 1 night & 2 days tour.
So the next day that is on 7th February at 8:00 am my journey started from Kolkata . It was an three and half hours journey to Godkhali , the last road point . Upon reaching there we saw our mesmerizing boat was waiting for us to take us to our Eco village on the island of Satjelia . It took an hour to reach Eco village . Upon reaching Eco village the first thing which was in my mind was to have my lunch as I was super hungry , but after a few minutes my hunger was transformed into my surprise upon seeing an authentic Bengali lunch .
Around 3:30 pm it was time for a country boat ride for bird watching , and getting introduced to the lovely mangroves . With the sun being set , around 5:30 pm we returned to the Eco village to spend an enchanting evening with the local musicians , sitting around the bonfire and soaking all the beautiful vibes .
With that said , now it was the time for dinner and after that an surprise night jungle safari on the country boat was waiting for us . An hour later it was the time to sleep like an baby in the beautiful mud cottages.
DAY 2 starts as early as 6:30 in the morning , on an engine boat . This boat cruises through the mangroves till sunset and during this period we visited two watch towers , namely Dobanki and Sajnekhali . Breakfast and lunch both was served on the boat itself .
After eleven hours of boat ride admist the enchanting mangroves we return back to Godkhali and started our journey back to Kolkata. At around 9:00 pm we reached Kolkata. Now it was time to say goodbye to all the other group members and return back home , and thus it brings the adventure of Sundarban the mysterious mangroves to an end.
