Location

Solitary Nook is located between rivers and green paddy fields, in the Southern deltaic region of West Bengal, in Pakhiralaya, adjacent to Dayapur Jetty Ghat.

Sundarbans National Park

Sundarbans National Park is the largest mangrove swamp in the world. This place is distinguished by the productive growth of littoral mangrove vegetation. They grow best in these salty coastal waters. This archipelago is the world’s largest deltaic forest, also known as the Bengal Delta or the Green Delta, which is formed by the amalgamation of two rivers: Ganges and Brahmaputra.

It is spread on an area of almost 1,330 square kilometers. If you think that there isn’t any natural zone in India to be celebrated, you’ll be pleased to hear that this evergreen land of mangroves was awarded as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. These dense evergreen delta-forests are home to the majestic and fiery Royal Bengal tigers, being famous for having the largest number of tigers in the entire world.
