The Entry Point of Sundarban Tiger Reserve

Sajnekhali serves as the entry point of Sundarban Tiger Reserve as tourists collect permit from here. Moreover, a Mangrove Interpretation Center is there to make people familiar with the mangrove ecosystem. The watchtower is good for spotting birds.

Watch Tower with amazing view

The Watch Tower is dilapidated and needs immediate attention. The view from the tower is breathtaking. However, maintenance is poor. Also, no one to control the crowd. Wild life becomes useless when there is noise. Need huge discipline.

Forest office from where you need to seek permission

Sajnekhali Watch Tower in the Sajnekhali island is a popular destination for tourists. Most of the tourists in Sunderbans visit this tower. The forest office present there provide/issue permission to visit other places in Sunderbans. There is a hall that displays various photographs shot by forest officials.

Museum is one of the biggest attractions

I would recommend to skip this. We don't go Sunderban to see spotted deers, crocodiles, water monitor lizards. Do we?
