Jambudwip "Nature Walk"

This was my second visit to Bakkhali in the recent past. Both visits relate to starting Jambudwip "Nature Walk" tourism from November 2015. The idea is that tourists can get tickets from Bakkhali Tourist Lodge and assemble at Frasergunge Harbour where there will be a Sundarini Kiosk and a Helpdesk with pay and use toilet. A WBSTC vessel would take them under the guidance of trained forest guides. At the island, rare migratory birds, sea birds, red crabs and mangroves can be photographed. The visit would be extenrted to Gangasagar on Sundays.

 Today, PCCF (Wildlife) Mr Shukla, Raju Das CEO Eco Tourism Advisory Board, DFO South 24 bPraganas (Ms Tripti Saha), Mr Dhiraj Dhar, Spl Engineer UD, SDPO Kakdwip, IC Namkhana, EO GBDA Arghy Ghosh, SFDC, Dy Secy Tourism, GM WBTDC, Sabhapati Namkhana, ADM South 24 Paraganas, Director Sunderbans Biosphere and others joined us in the meeting at Bakkhali and then to Jambudwip by speed boat of Coastal Police.
