Spread across India and Bangladesh and famous for its unique mangrove forests, Sundarbans (which means "beautiful forest") is a cluster of low-lying islands in the Bay of Bengal. The name may have been derived from the Sundari trees that are found in the Sundarbans.
This active delta region formed by the confluence of the Ganges, Brahmaputra, and Meghna Rivers, is among the largest deltas in the world, measuring about 40,000 sq km. Sundarbans National Park, Sundarbans West, Sundarbans South, and Sundarbans East Wildlife Sanctuaries are the four protected areas in the Sundarbans which are enlisted as UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
The Sundarbans National Park is one of the largest reserves for the Bengal tigers. It is also home to a variety of birds, reptiles, and invertebrate species, including the salt-water crocodile.
