Feb 10, 2008

Home to scads of endangered and rare species, these National Parks provide an experience of a life time to nature lovers, who come down in scores to visit these places.

Sunderbans is the world's largest delta and mangrove forest, which is the chief reason why tourists come flocking in to this place. The region boasts of a 2,585 sq km wildlife sanctuary-the largest estuarine wildlife sanctuary in the world. Though the place is inhabited by abundant wild animals like Macaques, Wild Boar, Fox, Common Grey Mongoose, Pangolin, Chital and several others, the star attractions of the Sunderbans are the Royal Bengal Tigers, who are on their verge of extinction.

Not only does this forest boast of it's wildness, it equally houses some of the best Hotels, which provide excellent accommodation facilities to the guests visiting these forests every year. There are a huge number of Hotels in Sunderbans tailored to suit the budget specifications of the tourists. Some of the famous Hotels include, "Sundar Chital Tourist Lodge", "Sunderban Tiger Camp" and "Vivada Cruises". Each of these Hotels is very well maintained with fully air conditioned rooms and attached bathrooms. With spacious and well furnished rooms, excellent dining facilities, state of art business facilities and much more, these Hotels successfully lure tourists to visit this place in jillions.

For all those who need a thorough experience of this place, these Hotels also organize numerous sightseeing tours headed by a proficient guide, to provide their guests with the entertainment and recreation which they crave for in this wilderness. This is also an excellent time for the wildlife photographers to have a pick on these wild rangers.

Another must visit National Park in the East is the "Kaziranga National Park" located in Assam. This world heritage site, as declared by UNESCO, is especially popular for housing two-thirds of the world's Great One-Horned Rhinoceroses, which can reach a height of over two meters and weigh more than two tones. It also provides a natural habitat to several species of mammals, birds and reptiles including Water Buffalo, Small Indian Civets, White Bellied Heron, Badgersblyth's Kingfisher, Dalmatian and a lot many more species. Though the Park remains open from November to April, March-April is considered to be the best time for animal sight seeing. The Park is usually closed during the monsoons i.e. from April end to mid October.

The Kaziranga Park has a fairly wide range of accommodations available for it's guests including rest houses, dormitories and lodges, which are especially maintained by the forest department and ITDC for it's esteemed visitors. Some of the Hotels where one can comfortably find accommodation are "Bonani Lodge", "Kunjaban Lodge", "Bonoshree Lodge" and "Shangrila River Cruise". These Lodges also cater the tourists with exciting tours which last around one hour on trained elephants that are available as mounts for sight seeing the Rhinos at close range.

Apart from these National Parks, there are a few other National Parks in this region like, Keibul National Park and Manas National Park, which the tourists can visit.

The east is definitely one of the most sought after places for nature lovers across the globe.
