Day 3: Sunderbans
In the morning, we cruise along the waterways and take you to another portion of the Sundarban Tiger Reserve.
This involves cruising through the creeks of Pirkhali and visiting the watchtower of Sudhanyakhali and Jharkhali (Optional).
Most of the tigers are sighted from the Sudhanyakhali tower. Some other wildlife like axis deers, wild boars and crocodiles may also be seen from this watch tower.
This watch tower has a capacity to host 25 persons at a time. There is a sweet water pond where animals come to drink water. Behind the pond are long stretches of observation lines, bereft of any vegetation where one can sight animals from a distance. The Brahmini Kite, Brown Winged Kingfisher, Jungle cat as well as the Monitor lizards is very often sighted from the Sudhanyakhali Watchtower.
Then we may follow any of the following two options:
Option 1: Thereafter, we can opt to cruise through the creeks and canals of the Sundarban Tiger Reserve looking for a chance to spot the Royal Bengal Tiger and other wild animals and after lunch on the boat, at around 12:00 – 12:30 hrs, depart for Godhkhali.
Option 2 : (Depending upon India Beacons choice): Visit the Jharkhali watchtower and depart from Jharkhali. After lunch on the boat, at around 12:00 – 12:30 hrs, we depart for our last destination, Jharkhali. At Jharkhali, visit Asia’s first Tiger Hospital wherein at present two tigers are kept for treatment and recuperation.
