The mangrove area is formed by the confluence of the Meghna, Brahmaputra, and Padma in the Bay of Bengal. Now imagine waking up in a beautiful cosy mud house right by a fish pond near the world’s largest mangrove forest. Here is how you can be a part of this rejuvenating experience.

Stay In Mud Houses Near Sundarbans

Sundarban Chalo began operating tours at the Sunderban Tiger Reserve in  2010. Late in 2019, they came up with Sundarban Jungle Mahal, which offers cosy cottage accommodations. These cosy mud houses and cottages are spread across 2 acres of land and are near the world’s largest mangrove forest, the Sundarbans. They are all surrounded by beautiful yellowish paddy fields, quaint villages, organic vegetable farms, and a lovely fish pond.

The houses are situated right on the banks of the Gomor river in Dayapur village, right in front of the watch tower of the Sundarban Tiger Reserve. The locals actually come to this place to fetch fish. This place offers you the perfect getaway from all the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The view from your house itself will bring a huge smile to your face and a sense of tranquilly.
