Eid Special Trip
If you wish to get away from the overwhelming Eid festivity and have a relaxed and refreshing time join us for the Eid Special Trip to the Sundarbans. A 3 days trip from 28 June to 30 June 2017. The trip will travel to Katka and Kachikhali Sanctuary area at the coast of Bay of Bengal and make a stop-over at the Harbaria Eco Park on the way back.
The Highlight of this trip should be the Monsoon. Experiencing rain in Sundarbans is quite a thing. Rain and fresh water coming from upstream gives the forest new life. In the Monsoon wildlife sighting will be much less but if you want to get a glimpse of Sundarbans real beauty, this is the time.
This trip requires a minimum group size of 8 persons
Day 0: BOARDING AND SETTLE IN
The boat will be ready for boarding at Khulna Jailkhana Ghat from the evening of 27 June. If you are coming from Dhaka with the evening flight to Jesore, you will be able to board the boat by 10 in the evening, but if you are coming with night coach you will be arriving in the early morning of 28 June. If the bus is delayed for any reason please let the guide know so that the boast can starts towards Mongla to maintain the time and you can get on-board at Mongla. Which will save at least 3 hours.
DAY 1: CRUISE THROUGH THE FOREST AND ARRIVE KATKA
The boat will begin the cruise to the south in the early morning. After few hours of cruising the boat will stop at Dhanmari forest station to complete formalities and also pick up armed forest guards to stay on-board for the duration of the trip (our boat has separate accommodation for the forest guards, so you will only see them when you will venture into the forest on foot). After that the boat will resume the cruise and arrive Katka / Kochikahli forest station late in the afternoon and if time permits you’ll have a soft walk or a silent boat trip in to the forest. The boat will be anchored here for the night. This would be a very good place and time to experience the amazing silence of Sundarbans filled with call of a night bird or deer alarm call or an occasional Tiger call.
DAY 2: EXPLORING THE FOREST
Enjoy the sunrise with your morning coffee. Right after sunrise you will have a silent boat trip on a wooden row boat though the creeks. This is the best way to experience wildlife in Sundarbans. Hold your breath because there might be a tiger sitting right on the next bend. This boat trip will last for about two hours. Then get back to the boat and enjoy a long breakfast and get ready for the day. After breakfast we will take you for about an hour walk through a mixed track to the pristine beach of Badamtala facing the Bay of Bengal. Indulge yourself with a with refreshing swim in the tropical warm water of the bay. Now you can get back to boat the same way and take a cruise to Kachikhali or if you are adventurous enough you can walk all the way to Kachikhali following the bay. A thought of a fabulous lunch waiting on the boat will keep you going!!! Late afternoon explore the Egg Island and enjoy Sun setting on the bay. Get back to boat and enjoy Chef’s special dinner BBQ. Depending on the tide and the weather the captain might decide to cruise for few hours in the night to a nearby forest station on the way back for overnight anchorage.
