Floating in splendid isolation ,east of the Indian mainland is the archipelago of 572 emerald islands, islets and rocks known as Andaman & Nicobar islands. This union territory stretches over a length of more than 700 kms from north to south with 36 inhabited islands. Once a hill range extending from Burma to Indonesia ,these undulating islands are covered with dense forests and endless variety of exotic flora and fauna. The sandy beaches on the edge of meandering coastline are fringed with coconut palms that sway to the rhythm of the sea.
The sea around the islands offers excellent scope for adventure water sports. The rare flora and fauna ,underwater marine life and corals, crystal clear water and mangrove lined creeks offer a dream -view of the rare gifts of nature. The clean roads as well as unpolluted fresh air attract any nature-lover who seeks absolute peace and tranquility in the lap of mother nature. Adventure tourism like trekking, island camping,snorkeling,scuba diving etc are major attractions here. A visit to these islands is a memorable lifetime experience.
