Book Tour and Activities on the Go!
Almost 13% of India’s mangrove cover is in Andaman and Nicobar Islands and among that, majority is appearing in Baratang Island, an ecologically important and a famous tourist destination. In terms of density and growth, Andaman’s mangroves seem to be the best.
Mangroves are found in abundance where there is brackish water and that is the reason behind Baratang Island’s consecutive support in the growth of thick mangrove creeks there.
Highlights: There are tremendous scopes for bird watching as the thick wilderness is a haven for rare species of colorful birds. Also, there are sleeping crocodiles in the water. Hence, people are not supposed to insert their hands inside because the crocodiles will pull you toward the water.
Activities: The island offers a relaxing boat ride through these mangroves which would lead you to reach the prestigious attraction of Baratang that is the Lime Stone Caves. Apart from Baratang mangrove creek safari, the tourists are directed to enjoy other safaris like Yerrata Creek, Dhaninalla Mangrove Creek and Sabari Village in Rangat etc.
Distance from Port Blair: Baratang Island is located 100 km's away from the beautiful Port Blair. There are plenty of boats will be available to take you through the dense forests but one thing to remember is that you should sit firmly on the boat since even a single movement will cause you fall into the mangrove roots filled water.
