The Sundarban National Park is located in Calcutta in West Bengal. It was established in 1984 and is a World Heritage Site. A National Park, a Biosphere Reserve and a Tiger Reserve, the Sunderbans are a very critical ecosystem. The Sunderbans National Park is regarded as the largest reserve for the Royal Bengal Tiger.

The park is a part of the Sunderbans on the delta of the Ganges. The delta region is covered by dense mangrove forests, which are one of a kind in the world. Salt water crocodiles, Spotted Deer, Wild pigs, Royal Bengal Tiger, etc are found inside the forests. Approximately 500 quintals of honey and 30 quintals of wax are collected by locals every year, such is the natural wealth of the region! The Sunderban National Park is one of the most important national parks of the country and is known for its rich biodiversity. A 400 year old temple of Lord Shiva is also found, now in ruins. The region is highly humid owing to its proximity with the Bay of Bengal.

The best time to visit the Sundarban National Park is during the winters between December and February. The park is open from September to March.
