Introducing Mongla

The poor man’s Khulna, Mongla is a small, river-port town where tourists who can’t afford, or haven’t had time, to prearrange a multiday Sundarbans tour from Khulna can dip into the mangrove forests on a last-minute day trip.

The Sundarbans begins just 5km south from here and the longer, better-organised tours from Khulna will pass through here before they delve deeper into the forests.

The bus stand and the Parjatan Hotel are on the other side of the Mongla River from town. Small boats shuttle passengers across the river (Tk 2).
