You can go in 2 way

1 From kulna Mongla by river you can hier Trolar must make a group of 10-15 people.

2. You can book Parzatan or other guided trip which is much safer and and well arranged.

You should go in november-feeb then you will have less raptile threat.

make plan very detail as there is high risk involve.

but sundar ban is fun. try to be in katka rest house that is the safest.

Hi,
First of all I appreciate your plan to visit The Sundarbans, because this is the largest Mangrove Forest of the World. If you want to visit there I have some recommendations for you. These are-
# Must come with a small group on this adventure may by in between 10-15.
# You can visit there in two ways. One is river cruise from Dhaka & another is by road to Mongla and then by troller or steamer.
# Only for Sunderbans you will need 5-6 days.
# Remember you have to stayed on steamer for 2-3 days so you have to mentally prepared for this.
First of all it is important to know if you are a Bangladeshi or not. If not you have to pay extra to enter the Sunderbans.
The best way to go is September till the middle of December and from February till the end of March. In the Winter there can be a lot of fog and the Summer months are simply to hot.
The best way is to book your trip with a travel organisation like guide tours. I used them and they are very profesional. and every thing is included in the price. The trip goes from Dhaka by plane or bus to Kulna and than by boot to the Sunderbans. Guards are comming on board of the ship to protection for the Bengal tiger. You are sleeping on the boat and in the day time you visit by small boat some locations and the bay of Bengal. The trip takes five days bud sometimes there are other arrangements.
You can book by your self bud they don't go if the boot is not booked for say 60%.
The best way to go is through Parjatan Corporation. They have several packages. If you dare to go all by yourself then you have to form a team. Then you can go to Hiron Point or you can go through Munshiganj of Shatkhira.

Email: . Besides, everyone has to pay an extra amount to enter into the forest. If u r a local it's minimum and as foreigner it's bit higher. If u fly from DHK to Jessore it will cost around 3,000 BDT. For a four day trip let's you'll need around US$ 300 depends on ur mode of transport, fooding and other things. Cheers

first marry a Man.Then no need for anything.he will take you there.
First of all decide whether you want to go under a package tour or go by yourself with friends.

If you are running out of time and planning for a short and adventurous trip, you can contact me or drop me a message. Remember it is recommended to come in a group. You will travel by speed boats and the by Bus which is quite adventurous and time saving.
