South 24 Parganas district is an important district of West Bengal State with its district headquarters in Alipore. It has the urban fringe of Kolkata on one side and the remote riverine villages in the Sundarbans.Agriculture, Industry and Pisciculture are all at their peak in the district. Sundarbans, formerly Sunderbunds, is a vast tract of forest and saltwater swamp forming the lower part of the Ganges Delta, extending about 160 miles (260 km) along the Bay of Bengal from the Hooghly River Estuary (India) to the Meghna River Estuary in Bangladesh. The whole tract reaches inland for 60-80 miles (100-130 km).A network of estuaries, tidal rivers, and creeks intersected by numerous channels, it encloses flat, marshy islands covered with dense forests. The name Sundarbans is perhaps derived from the term meaning "forest of sundari," a reference to the large mangrove tree that provides valuable fuel. Along the coast the forest passes into a mangrove swamp; the southern region, with numerous wild animals and crocodile-infested estuaries, is virtually uninhabited. It is one of the last preserves of the Bengal tiger and the site of a tiger preservation project. The cultivated northern area yields rice, sugarcane, timber, and betel nuts.The region is also famous for some commonly domesticated livestock breeds which includes the Garole breed of sheep and Chinae hans or Muscuovy ducks, the Garole sheep is considered as the progenator of the Booroola merino sheep and is noted for its prolific character. However, the wool of the sheep which can be a valuable natural asset does not find any use among the natives.Bakkhali beach resort located on one of the islands jutting out into the Bay of Bengal is gaining in popularity, with improvements in transport links with Kolkata.

Place of Interest

Ganga Sagar                                                                                                                                                                                        Most of the year the place is one serene spots you can think of : windblown, absolutely quite, with sweeping views of the mighty Ganga ending its journey into the sea, and a lovely island they call Sagardwip. But come mid-january( the last day of the month of Pous in the Bengali Calendar), divinitity seems to descend from the blue sky overhead on to the waters and the beach at Sagardwip. Millions of pilgrims and devotees from all over india come to take a dip in the freezing waters here to cleanse all sins away and offer worship at the temple of Kapil Muni. A huge and colourful fair takes place on this occasion- aptly names Sagar Mela - which is held once a year during Makar Sankranti.
To come to "Sagar: take a bus from Kolkata to Lot 8/ Harwood point, cross on the ferry and baord another bus to Sagar.
Accommodation has to organised in advance. You have a choice of tourist hostels, cottages, tents, youth hostels etc.
Beauty meets divinity
Kapila Muni Asram


The home of Royal Bengal Tigers. A 'World heritage site' . The world's largest estuarine forest - one of the very few in the world still having its flora and fauna intact, a remarkable feature being the bayonet like roots of mangrove forests sticking out above the water levels.
Conducted launch trips organised by the West Bengal Tourism Development Corporation or private vessels from Canning, Basanti, Gosaba or Basanti.                                                                                                                        
           Tourist Lodges at Sajnekhali, Bakkhali, Gangasagar.
BakKhali & Frasergunj
Where you are a Royal Guest....
Go shell-picking, watch fishermen come in with their silvery catch. Glory in the sun leaping up like a fiery ball from the depth of the sea. Experience darkness descending like a curtain, with a velvely sky arching over your head, and catch the phosphorescent gleam of the rolling waves. The casuarina groves are thick, quite and full of romance.
It's only 132 km. by road from Kolkata. Take a 3-hour bus-ride to Namkhana. Hop on to the ferry to cross Hatania-Doania riverwith the vehicle that takes about an hour to reach Bakkhali / Frasergunj. Nearest Airport - NSC Bose international Airport, Kolkata.
There is a comfortable Tourist Lodge and very economic dormitory accomodation. A village canteen can give you good, home type food. Apart from these, private hotels are also available,
