In Search of Wild Honey
Highlights of the tour :
What To Expect
The Sunderbans form the single largest mangrove forest on the planet. This protected area lies on the South Western part of Bangladesh and has been declared as a UNESCO world heritage site.
On this tour you will be joining a group honey collectors, whose life depends on collecting honey from the Mangrove forest. This is also the home of the famous Royal Bengal Tiger. This forest is home to many different species of plants, birds, reptiles, and mammals. Join us for the cruise through narrow canals and creeks, trekking inside the forest to look for honey. Come, and these days will be full of activity, getting to know and understand the forest ‘s biodiversity and its nature. You will spend three nights on a boat, and the facilities will be shared. The simple but comfortable boats are specially built for cruising in Sunderbans and are chartered only for you. The majority of the cabins are equipped with twin-shared bunk beds, and there are shared bathroom facilities at the rear of the vessel. Armed forest rangers will be available to accompany you.
In case of any problem stay calm and discuss with your guide directly.
