The national park and wildlife sanctuary is inundated by the rivers like Baitarani, Brahmani, Dhamra & Pathsala. It hosts many mangrove species, and is the second largest mangrove ecosystem in India & it’s quite adventurous cruising in the serpentine river ways surrounded by mangrove forests on both sides.
