Know Jharkhali

Nestled in the lap of the wonderful Sunderbans, it’s an isolated tourist spot, around 100km away from Calcutta. Jharkhali is situated at an almost equal distance from Godkhali and Sonakhali in Basanti block of South 24-Parganas. The mangrove forests of the Sunderbans start where Jharkhali ends.
Tucked away on the south-east fringe of the Sunderbans, Jharkhali can be reached from Basanti and Canning via Sonakhali, Kultali and Kumirmari. After passing through lush green paddy fields, small villages and lines of trees on either side of the road, Jharkhali lies almost at the edge of brackish water.
Even 20 years back, a strong wind blowing in from the mangrove forests was common in Jharkhali, the storm-like wind probably lending the place its name.
Jharkhali is a favourite of tourists for its abundant nature and vast expansion of rivers like Herobhanga and Bidyadhari.
