We went to Sudhanyakhali on Third day of our sundarban trip. The height of the watch tower is not that great. A large sweet water pond increases chances of seeing animals, but we weren't that lucky. You may enjoy the walk around the tower, rest nothing much was there.

Visited the watch tower on the trip to sunderban, it was located close to the Sunderban Tiger Camp. You are dropped from the ferry , enter into a gate and there is a ticket counter , our guide took the tickets , could see monkey with a baby in the garden, moved to the tower and tried to see some animals but there were none. The tower is close to a fresh water man made pond which act as a reservoir for the animals to drink water. Rest of the water is salty thus there are chances of spotting tiger and deer. But saw only monitor lizards and crocodile. but after spending some time saw a big deer , which ate some leaves and left , Down from tower and saw another deer but could see croc and many lizards, Plenty of yellow and red crabs can be seen. There is an information center , not very great but ok. It closes at 4.30 PM so you need to be there before it. You can see Sundari tree on which the name sunderban is named. Now you know the secret of the name. Worth going but i Bellevue all watch towers are same. The department should put some binoculars so that people can see far off animals. It could be paid . Nice view though

This is a very well maintained property - and entry is free. Travellers are advised to try and reach there early in the morning if possible to enhance your chances for animal sightings. During the day time it gets crowded and with such a high noise level, your chances of animal sightings is negligible. However the views from the watchtower is very pleasing to the eyes.

With my friends my trip to Sundarban Tour was from 25.01.20 to 28.01.20. A real new experience through the world's largest mangrove forest and the largest delta. from this watch tower, we the see the main land of Dakhinroy(Royal bengal tiger). though we have fenced with wire but it is really a fear mixed wired experience. Nice place to see the farmer, fisherman, honey hunters main land.

Nice place to take a break to walk around on land from a few hours on the beat looking for wildlife. We saw quite a few deer, crabs, birds and ducks. This is an enclosed walking bridge. There is a watering hole where wild animals come to drink sweet water.

Sudhanyakhali Watch Tower is located inside Sundarban forest area, ferry is the only option to reach there. And permission from Forest office is needed in advance before entering this place. After entering this area, you will find a temple of popular local goddess Banbibi. There is a 'Mangrove Interpretation Center' where one can identify various types of mangrove trees. Then comes the watch tower. A water reservoir is there next to the watch tower where wild animals use to come. So chance of finding wild animal is high.

Really enjoyed watching vast mangrove forest, birds and deer from the watch tower. Finding a tiger needs luck, and I was not so lucky! Anyway found one board over there; dates and time were mentioned when Tiger was found.

From this watch tower, one can view Jungles of Sundarban. We realize how nature is playing its role in an amazing way.

The early morning cruise from our hotel to the Sudhanyakhali Watch Tower island was a real pleasure. The islands are beautiful, with different varieties of mangroves. We saw some spotted of deer and wild boar. Try to go when the tide is low as the animals tend to retreat into the jungle during high tide. From the watch tower itself we didn't get any good sightings.

This place is in an island surrounded by wires and protected by forest department so that visitors can walk safely to watch towers to have a view from top to see animals.The sighting is rare of course.There is a fresh water tank where animals come early morning or evening to quench their thirst.
This is part of the package of Sunderban trip and you need to take permission from Sajnekhali forest department to travel.From Sajnekhali you have to travel by motor launch to reach this island

This watch tower has the highest number of tiger sightings but unfortunately in very early mornings or in the evening when the boats are not allowed in this area . Deer and wild boar are visible as they have a fresh water pond for animals to drink water
