Andaman and Nicobar is a place which is quite serene and offbeat when compared to the touristic culture in rest of India. The place is quite offbeat but is blessed with natural beauty that will surely take your heart away. If you wish for white sand beaches, sunny skies, palm trees, marine life and blue waters, Andaman is surely the place for you.
We kick off our 4 nights 5 days Andaman Tour starts from Port Blair. Port Blair is the capital city of Andaman and Nicobar Islands. Cellular Jail or Kaala Paani is one of the most popular places to visit in Port Blair. A trip around the jail blocks of the Cellular Jail will take you on an experience where the freedom fighters were imprisoned during the freedom fight against the Britishers.
During the duration of our trip we will be visiting some famous places in Andaman and Nicobar on it’s different islands. Neil Island is an island of the Andaman and Nicobar which is located in Ritchie’s Archipelago. Neil Islands have one of the most beautiful and scenic beaches in the Andamans, most famous being Laxmanpur Beach and Bharatpur Beach. It is also the place where most of the population of Marine Turtles are found. Howrah Bridge is an arch-like structure that resembles a bridge and many trekkers come to visit its tip that goes through a small artificial garden and a muddy path, making it a unique and interesting sight.
The Zonal Anthropological Museum in Port Blair was established in 1975. It is a well maintained museum which tells us more about this island’s local tribes. These tribes are also believed to be one of the oldest in the world. The islands have six main tribes native to this place which are, Onges, Sentinelese, Jarawas, Andamanese, Shompens and Nicobarese. These tribes maintain limited contact with the world, and not a lot is known about them. This museum provides the knowledge about their history, culture, ways of living and tools used by the tribal people.
Months from October to April is considered the best time to visit, as the weather is pleasant, just perfect for sightseeing, water sports, and beach excursion. Monsoons (July to September) are not always recommended because of the high tidal waves, incessant rains and strong winds.
