Sunderban: A Place Worth-Visiting in Bangladesh

Christmas is a blessing to our family. It’s a time, not only to remember the birthday of our Savior, but a time to fellowship with our family and relatives as well.

We were privileged to visit and tour around Sunderban before the end of 2015. Thank God for His protection as we traveled from Dhaka to Khulna.

I’m sharing with you some photos of our trip.

Here’s how we got there.

 


Here’s what we saw at the entrance.

A big map of the jungle at the entrance gate. Just imagine the size of this mangrove! It’s about 139, 500 ha (345, 000 acres).

Sunderban–it is said to be the largest mangrove in the world. This sign board is somewhere at the end of the jungle’s trail for the visitors.

 

 

Expect to see crocodiles on the ground:

We saw this crocodile beside a fenced pond.

You can enjoy seeing wild monkeys on a tree. No, they are not caged at all. 🙂

How many monkeys can you see? 🙂

While some animals are out in the jungle and some are kept in cages.

Most of the animals visitors enjoy seeing are alive wild animals but there is a special place where all you can see are skeletons of animals. This one is that of a dolphin.

How did you spend your Christmas holiday? Did you go and visit your relatives? While it is not required for us to go to a fabulous place during holidays, we should remember that investing time for our loved ones is essential to building a stronger family ties.

Memories with them is something that nobody can steal from us. Let’s continue enjoying building special memories with our family.
