Sunderban seems to be a floating forest when it gets partially submerged by highly saline water during the high tide. Within a few hours, the low tide makes the water to recede back to the Bay of Bengal exposing the clay beds of mudflat to the air. Tidal amplitude and fluctuations of Sundarbans is around 7 meter. These unique features make Sundarban National Park, the best National Park in India. The Sundarban National Park is a great tourist spot.
