The Sunderbans has the unique distinction of being the only forest in India to be declared a sanctuary, national park, tiger reserve, biosphere reserve and World Heritage Site. It is also the abode of the famed Royal Bengal Tiger.

The book is a guide to the world’s biggest mangrove forest, the Sunderbans, detailing its distinctive natural vegetation and wildlife. Tourist destinations, routes to reach and traverse the area, accommodation and lists of plant and animal life are provided in this strikingly illustrated volume.
