Sundarbans, literally means beautiful forest, is a combined forest in Bangladesh and India and a haven for photographers and travelers, and is the biggest mangrove forest in the world and is a treasure island of biodiversity. The Sundarbans has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The part of the forest within Indian Territory is called Sundarbans National Park and is in the South 24 Parganas district of West Bengal. The Sundarbans cover an area of 38,500 sq km, of which about one-third is covered in water/marsh areas. Since 1966 the Sundarbans have been a wildlife sanctuary, and it is estimated that there are now 400 Royal Bengal tigers and about 30,000 spotted deer in the area.

Paradise for wild life and greenish dense forest adventures and enthusiastic photographers, looks for the real panoramic region as the canvas, come over to Sundarbans. This forest has the credit of large number of Sundari trees and some claim that Sundarban derived its name from these trees. One who likes nature in its wildest forms, Sundarbans is the prime location which is not to be missed. Sundarbans offers a very extra ordinary view and a wild journey for a life time to recall.

Meandering rivers, springs, creeks and beautiful estuaries, Sundarban is ruled by the unique natural beauty of its surroundings. Wildlife flourishes in Sundarbans, leading with the Royal Bengal Tiger. The mighty Royal Bengal Tiger, ultimate and unopposed king of the forest, is majestic, cunning and merciless to its prey. It is the natural habitat of many other famous wild life animals like jungle fowl, giant lizards, spotted deer, wild boar, crocodiles and many more that the nature lovers would get a very good chance to have a close look. Migratory group of Siberian ducks is an attraction in some seasons, a beautiful scene of these ducks flying over sail boats fully loaded with many items like timber, fuel wood, honey, fish and shell adding to the serene natural attractiveness of the Sundarban.

The main tourist point is Nilkamal known also as Hiron Point for watching vociferous wild animals and natural beauty. Katka is another place where wind animals mare freely and also good for bird watching. Vast area of verdant valleys starting from Katka to tiger point in Kachikhali provides opportunities for adventurous wild trekking. Tin Kona Island is well known for deer and wild tiger and Dublar Char Island for fishermen. It is a beautiful island where flocks of spotted deer are frequently seen to graze.

It is also the perfect place for the ordinary holiday makers who desire to rest or roam around at will to refresh their mind and feast their eyes with the rich treasure that nature has so fondly bestowed.

Namkhana is closer to lothian wildlife sanctuary and bhagabatpur crocodile project in sundarbans. but most attractive places in sundarbans are sundarban tiger reserve and sajnekhali wildlife sanctuary and most of the tourists visit these places.And these places are closer to Canning Railway head. canning is about 1 hour 10 mnts away from sealdah, kolkata.
