Dobanki Watch Tower
The Sundarbans are the biggest littoral mangrove belt in the world, stretching 80 km (50 mi) into the Bangladeshi and Indian hinterland from the coast. The Sundarbans has been announced a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The forests aren’t just mangrove swamps though, they include some of the last remaining stands of the mighty jungles which once covered the Gangetic plain. The Sundarbans cover an area of 10,500 sq km, of which about one-third is covered in water/marsh areas. Since 1966 the Sundarbans have been a wildlife sanctuary, and it is estimated that there are now 400 Royal Bengal tigers and about 30,000 spotted deer in the area.This is the third point on the tour of Sundarban National Park.The grand Canopy Walk is what this Watch Tower is well-known for and visited for. Your trip to the Sundarban would be incomplete without this Canopy Walk. Infact this Canopy Walk completes your trip to the Sundarban. It is more than half kilometre long walkway, at a height of 20 feet from the ground which is protect ed in grill and strong net in the form of a canopy to protect from the wildlife and therefore is safe. This Canopy Walk takes you half kilometre broad into the forest where you could be walking along side deers, tigers etc. It is a very thrilling experience which brings back tourists for repeat-walks. This Watch Tower overlooks a sweet water pond where spotted Deers, Tigers and Brahmini Kites visit.
