Day 2
Day-2: Sundarbans: Harbaria Eco Park & Kochikhali

• Start at 6:00 am and drive to Mongla (1.5 hours). Transfer to our boat upon arrival, and head toward Sundarbans immediately. Breakfast will be served on the boat. You’ll be inside the forest within 15 minutes of starting the journey. Stop at a forest station on the way to complete formalities, then continue toward Kochikhali.

• Travel through many small and shallow canals and rivers where big boats cannot go because of their size. Exploring these narrow canals is the main benefit of traveling on a small boat, which gives you the best chance to spot a tiger and other wildlife.

• Stop at Harbaria Eco Park and warm-up your experience by walking on its 30 mins trail for the first experience of Sundarbans. Day tours, which we never recommend, end at this point. Before sunset, explore a small canal on a noiseless wooden row-boat and search for wildlife. Many animals come to drink water in the evening and morning on the creeks and canals. You’ll float quietly on the boat and experience a breath-taking environment listening to many singing birds and the sounds of many animals. Arrive in Kochikhali by day’s end and stop for the night.

• Stay overnight on the boat in a sleeping cabin, anchored in the middle of the river in front of Kochikhali forest station.

  1. The best guide ever!!!
    Mr. Erik Nilsson (Michigan, USA) January 22, 2020
    Speaking as the travel editor for a major international media group for over half a decade, I have to say that Muhammad ranks among the very best of all the hundreds of tour guides I’ve encountered. He truly customized our trip, which we especially needed since we visited Bangladesh with an 8-year-old and her fairly naughty 4-year-old brother, both of whom also came to love Muhammad. He made it one of the best trips out of around 30 countries I’ve visited. He went above and beyond in every way! I couldn’t recommend him enough!
