Samsernagar is a small village at the extreme part of India Bangladesh Border within North 24 Parganas and beside Rai Mongol River, WB. This small village is situated within the last civilized Island before Bangladesh within India. It’s geographic location is very much interesting. On the left side of the village Kalindi river is flowing. You can see Bangladesh on the opposite side of the village. Other side of the village is Sundarban which is just 50 meters away from the village. The most unpopular yet little known place near to this village is Samsernagar which itself carries plenty of stories of tiger and human. Due to lack of tourism this part of Sundarban is still very much untouched, unexplored and totally virgin which makes it more beautiful and dense and one of the top-most offbeat location for upcoming days. This small village is rich in rural culture and local activities and most of the people is attached with firming and local works.

Story of Samsernagar:
Samsernagar is the closest encounter place of Sundarban. Even 6-7 years back tiger trespassing into the village was a regular story. This eastern part of Sundarban contains the 90% of the total tiger of Indian Sundarban. As this part is still out of Tourism so wildlife have chosen this part for their habitat. So this Eastern part is a paradise for wildlife photographer, Animal lover and ironically chances of tiger and crocodile spotting is maximum here. Samsernagar is divided from Sundarban by a small man made canal, but during low tide there used to be no water and during high-tide with full water local fisherman takes their fishing boat out for daily work. Many people are depended on this Sundarban in terms of catching Big size Crabs and collecting pure honey from the Jungle. Somebody do it legally and some illegally but all the activities used to be very much adventurous. They take risk of their life and almost everyday get into the Jungle.
Few years back Forest department has circled the full Sundarban by Nylon wire to protect the local people and since then casualties has been minimized significantly. In 2009 the full village was submerged during the disaster of Ayela and since then this village is trying to stand on it’s own feet and to some extent successful though and going to be the attraction for coming days.
