Welcome to Port Blair, the capital of the Union Territory of Andaman & Nicobar Islands and gateway to the pristine islands.
We bet as we unfold this untold journey together, you’ll discover a wonderful part of you that you never knew existed.
We begin with Cellular Jail. Take a walk back in time to the highly charged days of Indian freedom struggle as you go around the Cellular Jail. Here’s where hundreds of Indian freedom fighters suffered pain and torture and succumbed to death at the hands of Britishers. This place fills you with pride and deep emotions as you look upon the cells and read the names of the inmates and articles about them. One of the most famous prisoners here was Veer Savarkar, who served 10 years here, even wrote poetries while imprisoned and also helped establish a library and educate the inmates. Also, get a good view of Mount Hariett, North Bay and Ross Island from the roof of the jail.
Later, wash off that somber mood as we head to one of the most beautiful beaches of Andaman- the Corbyn’s Cove beach. Indulge in this stunning visual treat of turquoise blue waters lined with emerald green coconut palms. Try any of the numerous water sports activities available here like jet-skiing, boating, surfing, swimming.
Later in the evening, we go back to Cellular Jail for the popular Light & Sound show. Narrated by late Bollywood actor, Om Puri, this show gives you a closer glimpse into the struggles and experience of the freedom fighters imprisoned here.
DAY 2 - Port Blair to Rangat via Baratang
We start the day early to drive to Baratang Island, one of the remotest corners of Andaman.
Delight in this unforgettable trip through the Andaman Trunk road, while passing by the Jarawa Reserve Forest in a convoy, observing the settlements of the Jarawa tribe – one of the oldest existing human races, en route. This place was inaccessible to people of the island and tourists for a long time because the Jarawas are highly territorial and suspicious.
Then we take a short boat ride through a wide creek and hushed narrow mangroves and trek for 2km through a tropical forest walkway to reach the Limestone Caves.
Marvel at the massive sedimentary limestone formations, constantly evolving in shape and size with different patterns. After this, watch a rare phenomenon of active mud volcanoes, created by the eruption of mud, water and gases. These are the only known site of mud volcanoes in India.
As we proceed to Rangat, we’ll stop over at Amkunj Bay Beach. The opportunities of enjoying solitude and peace would be numerous throughout our trip and Amkunj Bay beach, with its distinctive black sands and rocky shores offers you a perfect start.

We reach Rangat in time for dinner.

The beach itself is a haven with miles of soft, brown sands lined with casuarinas and dotted with swings, shades and a bamboo tower.
If you’re lucky and travelling between November and February, you may get to see little turtles scuttling to the turquoise waters for the first time in their lives. If you bring your own equipment, this place is a perfect spot for windsurfing.
From here we drive through a scenic and photogenic route housing agricultural farms to reach Panchavati Hills.
Enjoy some time splashing under the gentle and breath-taking Panchvati waterfall, trek through the lush greenery all around, go around the farms and learn about various farming techniques from the locals and capture the vivid colours of this place on your camera to keep with you for eternity.
Trust us, you'll not want to forget the serenity and beauty of this place.
Next up, breathe in the fresh air at an eco-village, known as Ray Hills. It is a magnificent safe house to experience village life in its purest form.
Spend some time in eco-guesthouses, trek through the wilderness, try angling or ride an elephant, here. This place also has a small library, so you can sit back with a book for a while here, if you so fancy.
Just experience the mending powers that it offers to both your body and your spirit. Finally, we reach Karamatang Beach, one of the most visually striking places in Andaman. Also known as the Turtle Paradise of India, you can see the Turtle Nesting farm here. You can go scuba-diving, snorkelling or swimming here.

Explore the northern most tip of Andaman with Ross & Smith Islands- twin islands connected by a strip of sand bar. At Smith Island, feast your eyes on the beautiful crystal clear, gem-green waters, silvery sand and lush greenery in this place, while lying on a beach chair, or sitting under shades or rocking on a swing. Cross the sand bar to Ross Island and explore its wildlife sanctuary, if you wish. You have exactly three hours to enjoy these two islands to your heart’s content.

Then head to another perfect beach called Bharatpur Beach. It looks like it has been painted by an artist in his dream. It is known for swimming and coral-watching with it’s vast sandy stretches. Unlike most islands in Andaman, Neil has a flat terrain and that’s what makes it ideal for cycling.
