  2. Cchargheri Char, the Southern most village of South 24 Parganas. This is a special attraction where you have a chance to get a feel of the "Mudflats". An important physical feature of Sundarbans are the "Mudflats". You may be lucky enough to see small Octopus, Star Fish, Jelly Fish, Horse shoe Crab, prawn seeds as well as many other variety of fishes etc. Optional activity involves country boat ride along the jungles.

This journey would take you down the rivers Hogil, Gomar, Durgaduni and Gumdi in about one and a half hour. In the afternoon after lunch, set off on motor boat to the Sunderbans National Park and view wildlife from the Sajnekhali watchtower and visit the Sajnekhali Museum and Mangrove Interpretation Centre. This Watchtower provides one with an opportunity to view wildlife from close quarters.

    The canopy walk at Do Banki gives you an opportunity to view wildlife from a netted enclosure.
