Sunderbans: Enticing Part of West Bengal Tourism

Sunderbans, around 115 km from Kolkata, is a unique destination stuffed with beautiful landscapes, islands and an area covered with thick mangrove forest. It takes not more than three hours to reach here.  You have to ferry your way to your respective hotel or resort. This will be the most enchanting part of your tour when you are passing by the rivers Gomar, Hogil and Durgaduni. Its an unique experience to travel along the rivers at the backdrop of beautiful scenery.
