HOW TO REACH SUNDARBAN ?
There are various ways to reach this world-class place. Sundarban is not that far from Kolkata, the exact distance is 90.3K.m, which will take about 4 and a half hours via Baruipur. But if you wished to reach this place by yourself you must know the following ways to get in here like-
- Waterway: This is the most essential way as if you're going with the road, rail or air you have to go across the rivers as Sundarban is a coastal area. At first, you need to reach Godkhali Ferry Ghat by road, which will take 2.5 hours from Kolkata with the settled parking lot and mesmerizing views. After reaching Godkhali Ferry ghat you’ll move forward Sumdarban’s Gateway Gosaba through water with a luxurious cruise like the MV Paramhansa cruise. The best services and mouth-watering foods will give an extra flavour to your journey.
- Roadway: Reaching Sundarban with a long road wouldn't be a bad idea. You can give it a try if you’re visiting Sundarban by yourself. So, there are two main roadways to reach Godkhali ferry ghat, the Basant State expressway and another Baruipur-canning highway. Moreover, this road trip will contain both road and waterways as mentioned before. It will take 2.5 hours to reach Gokali and you can park your car here with an R.s 100 per day parking fee. From Gokhali you can start your Sundarban journey via waterway.
- Railway: You can find various well-connected railways from Kolkata to Gokhali, through stations like Sealdah, Canning, and Howrah. However, Canning will be the smartest to choose as it is the closest station to Sundarban and it’ll take only 1.30 hours. Additionally, you will get trains every 1 hours interval from here. All of the trains have EMU couches (9-6 bogies in each) but unfortunately, you can’t get any express train from here. Moreover, you should always pick a morning train to avoid crowds.
- Airway: This is the least chosen way to reach Sundarbans but Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose Airport is the closest to Kolkata. It’s about 114 K.M to reach Sundarban. In case you choose to travel with us we’ll provide you with comfortable coaches and tempo according to your group or family size.
WHEN IS THE BEST TIME FOR SUNDARBAN ?
Filled with the essence of flora and fauna, this place is a paradise for all and to observe all the beauty of Sundarban you must book your package wisely. So, here are some season-wise details about the conditions of Sundarban and the season to visit during this period or not!
Winter: Winter is the peak season to utilise your Sundarban. Mostly, from October to February you'll enjoy the beauty of Sundarban in its most glorious contour. At this time the temperature will be around 12° to 20° and you get to admire this world heritage comfortably. The pleasant weather, the foggy nature, glamour rivers, and various islands will give you a test of heaven. Moreover, the chance to capture the wild animals in the dense forests add-on as they get out to enjoy the sunlight.
Summer: Summer honestly will not be a good idea for you to visit on your ilish utsav sundarban 2023 tour. But with our well-accommodated AC vehicles & resorts, it will become pleasant for you. The sightseeing tour at this time can be scheduled in the early morning as the temperatures are low and you can witness the wild animals. The weather can be humid and you'll be exhausted by that but at night time the cool breeze and twinkling stars will blow away all your exhaustion. However, due to the fear of the thunderstorm ' Kal Baisakhi', and subsisting in a coastal area like Sundarbans will not be considered at this time most people avoid this time.
Note: While scheduling your Ilish Utsav Sundarban 2023 if you select wintertime, you'll get the best service at the cheapest price.
Monsoon: Monsoon is the weather you should always avoid for this type of tour. The weather at this time is so hazardous due to swollen rivers and heavy rainfall with lightning. Besides, Sundarban is an area near the Bay of Bengal, so boating will be very risky at that time.
Regardless, Monsoon can be the best time for the people who are looking for ilish utsav sundarban 2023.

It was a great trip for 2 night 3days trip at sundarban with Tourist hub India. quality of food and taste was very good. nice resort and was very comfortable . thanks to all the staffs and coordinator. they are very gentle and gave us all the necessary service promptly..
It was really awesome experience in Sunderban for 2 nights. The trip guide was awesome and enjoyable. The quality of service, resort, food everything they are provided was really nice and also was a great experience overall :).
Great experience and friendly manager and staff and tour cost of Rs. 5000/-PH for this package including all, I think its a great deal. The resort, food and rooms are also very nice..
We had a family trip at sundarban with tourist hub india and the tour plan for 3 days Sudarban Hilsa Festival was excellent, and the trip coordinator was well behaved and helpful. The food was good and the resort abiance was great. We enjoyed the traditional fold dance and overall experience was great.
Rooms were very nice and clean. Food was homely and well-cooked. The staffs were friendly and down to earth. I would mention Chhotu to name among them. A few hiccups were here and there, for example on 3rd day, the bunglow tour was not well-coordinated and people got scattered. Otherwise, it was an enjoyable trip.
