Excursions Around Sundarban National Park

Excursions around the Sunderban National Park take you to the habitats of the other 'residents' of the Sunderban. You can witness a large variety of birds, animals and reptiles. At Sajnekhali Bird Sanctuary, you get to see birds like spotted billed pelican, cotton teal, herring gull, Caspian tern, grey heron, large egret and others. The Halliday Island is the home to the barking deer while Kanak is the nesting place of Olive Ridley turtles. You can have a look at the ruins of a 400-year-old temple at Netidhopani and relax out at a beautiful tourist complex at Piyali.

The beauty of the mangrove forests and the presence of a large variety of wildlife in this region seem to have attracted even the Gods to this place. At Netidhopani you can have a look at the ruins of a 400-year-old temple. The legends that prevail here lend a mysterious touch to the atmosphere.

Halliday Island
The Halliday Island Wildlife Sanctuary along with Lothian Island Wildlife Sanctuary lies to the south of Sunderban. The sanctuaries are not the part of the tiger reserve. Halliday is the last retreat of the Barking Deer.

Kanak is one of the nesting beaches of Olive Ridley Turtles in Sunderban. The turtles migrate to the shallow coastal waters from a long distance to breed. The turtles are believed to travel upriver as far as 100 km from the sea mouth into the Sunderban.

A beautiful resting place, Piyali is a gateway to the Sunderban situated at a distance of 72 km from Calcutta.
