Nethidhopani is the only watchtower inside the Core Area of the forests where tourists are allowed. But on any given day only few boats are allowed inside the core area. The charges for entry permits are double of what it is to visit the other watch towers. The journey to this watch tower is little scary going through very narrow creeks and with very few boat traffic.
Legends have it that Behula (Refer to Chand Saudagar), while accompanying her dead husband Lakhinder on his last journey on the boat, was passing the bank of what is now called Netidhopani, saw an interesting thing. A woman was washing clothes and a child was continually disturbing her. Annoyed, she sprinkled some water on the boy. The boy became lifeless. The woman finished her laundry and then again sprinkled some water on the boy, chanting some mantras, to bring him back to life. Behula decided this was the person who could bring her husband back to life. She rowed the boat to the bank and asked the lady (Netidhopani) to teach her the verses. In fact, Behula reached heaven from this Ghat. Today this watchtower offers one a view of the ruins of a 400-year-old Shiva Temple. It is also believed that there is a road on the extreme right of the forest which was built by King Pratapaditya to guard the coastal area. There is also a sweet water pond made by forest department to attract animals.

There is no staying option at this camp, however, a day excursion can be done in a 1 Night 2 Days Trip.
Bonnie Camp, is one of the most beautiful watchtowers in the Sundarbans. This watchtower, 50 feet high, is the highest watch tower in the Sundarbans. There is a sweet-water pond where the wildlife of Sundarbans frequent throughout the day. The ambience being fabulous and one gets the feeling of desolate island when one spends the night at Bonnie camp.

The Sundarbans is a natural region comprising a small part in Eastern India. It is the largest single block of tidal halophytic mangrove forest in the world. The Sundarbans is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The Sundarbans National Park is a National Park, Tiger Reserve, and a Biosphere Reserve located in the Sundarbans delta in the Indian state of West Bengal. The name Sundarban can be literally translated as "beautiful forest" in the Bengali language (Shundor, "beautiful" and bon, "forest". The name may have been derived from the Sundari trees (the mangrove species Heritiera fomes) that are found in Sundarbans in large numbers.The Sundarban forest lies in the vast delta on the Bay of Bengal formed by the super confluence of the Ganges. The seasonally flooded Sundarbans freshwater swamp forests lie inland from the mangrove forests on the coastal fringe. It became inscribed as a UNESCO world heritage site in 1997. The Indian part of Sundarbans is estimated to be about 4,110 square kilometres (1,590 sq mile), of which about 1,700 square kilometres (660 sq mile) is occupied by waterbodies in the forms of river, canals and creeks of width varying from a few metres to several kilometres.
The Sundarbans is intersected by a complex network of tidal waterways, mudflats and small islands of salt-tolerant mangrove forests. The interconnected network of waterways makes almost every corner of the forest accessible by boat. The area is known for the eponymous Royal Bengal tiger (Panthera tigris tigris), as well as numerous fauna including species of birds, spotted deer, crocodiles and snakes. The fertile soils of the delta have been subject to intensive human use for centuries, and the ecoregion has been mostly converted to intensive agriculture, with few enclaves of forest remaining. The remaining forests, taken together with the Sundarbans mangroves, are important habitat for the endangered tiger.
