Stalk Bengal Tigers With a Bangladesh Visa

by David Pacella | November 5th, 2009

“Tyger, tyger, burning bright
In the forests of the night…” William Blake

Bangladesh is a small country located on the border between India and Burma (Myanmar). The country is relatively poor and the population is dense, but it is still an interesting place to visit. The Sundarbans  (the name means “beautiful forest) is one of the chief attractions.

The Sundarbans is a large mangrove forest. Bangladesh shares the Sunderbans with India, but the majority of the forest  (6000 square kilometers out of 10,000) is on the Bangladeshi side of the border.

The forest is deep, dark and wet-1/3 of it is covered in water. The Ganges river dolphin swims in the fresh water, and other, less friendly creatures lurk on land. The Sundarbans is one of the last remaining strongholds of the Bengal tiger in the wild.  An estimated 500 or so tigers stalk through the forest.  Be careful-they are especially aggressive towards humans, even for tigers.

Wikipedia notes that “humans are only a supplement to the tiger’s diet; they do not provide a primary food source.” Comforting thought, eh? Still, tigers in the Sunarbans kill between 50 and 250 people each year.

To visit Bangladesh, American citizens must obtain a Bangladesh visa. Here’s what you’ll need to get one:

  • Your US passport
  • 1 Bangladesh visa application  form
  • 1 passport photo
  • Roundtrip airline tickets or itinerary. If you are traveling by land, you’ll need a letter explaining when and where you will be entering and leaving the country.
