Vote for the Sundarbans

The Sundarbans are located at the cost of Bay of Bengal spreading across Bangladesh and West Bengal of India. It  is the largest mangrove forest in the world,  The forest lies in the vast delta formed by the confluences of the Padma, Brahmaputra and Meghna rivers. It's area is about 140,000 ha.
The Sundarbans have been declared world heritage by the UNESCO. The forest features a complex network of tidal waterways, mudflats and small islands of salt-tolerant mangrove forests.
The area is known for its wide range of fauna, with the Royal Bengal tiger being the most famous, but also including many birds, spotted deer, crocodiles and snakes. The forest has been named after a tree named Sundari. This mangrove tree produces good quality of wood timber.
Vote for Sundarbans in the New7Wonders of Nature contest.

Vote for Sundarbans, protect the Royal Bengal tigers.

Sundarbans is a nice attraction for the tourists. I have the luck of visiting the Sundarbans when I was a student of high school as part of my study tour. It was during the year 1987. It was a very enjoyable journey with my classmates. After visiting the Sundarbans we went to Kuakata sea beach and stayed overnight there.
