After reaching Port Blair, the next day was our tour to Baratang island where we can see the famous active mud volcano The road to Baratang from Port Blair passes through the Jarawa Tribe Reserve which is also known as Andaman Trunk Road (ATR Route). For the safety of the tourists and the tribals, security personnel also travel in a convoy. Interacting with them, giving them food or clicking their pictures is strictly prohibited and is punishable by law. We started very early in the morning as there were timings for passing through the Jarawa tribe reserve. So our journey through the dense forest of Jarawa reserve started which continued non-stop for one and half hour. After which we reached the ferry stand, we boarded a ferry for Baratang island. There we saw the famous mud volcano which erupted molten mud from the earth at regular intervals. It was so astonishing that the mud which boiled out of the earth was chill cold when we touched it and it had no medicinal value.
Watching the lime stone caves and the mangrove forests here was a lifetime experience.
The next day was our last day in Andaman. There was more place to watch so we started early again. First point was Mount Harriot, on the way we had a chance to stop and see the famous light house of the North Bay Island which appears at the back side of a 20 rupees note.
The last beach we visited in Andaman was the Mundapahar beach in Chidiya Tapu. It was a mangrove covered green and we experienced an amazing sight-seeing and also our last sunset in Andaman which was rightly an amazing end to our last evening at Andaman.
The next morning we had a quick view of the Aquarium where a variety of unique sea animals are kept. Thus our trip to Andaman ended to be an awesome one with much fun and adventure. It was a wonderful experience to be on the land of sand and beaches and was an ultimate treat to the stressed eyes, body and soul!
