in splendid isolation, east of the
Indian mainland is the archipelago of the 572 emerald islands, isles 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 inhibited islands. These undulating islands
are covered with dense forests and endless varieties
of exotic flora and fauna. The topography of the islands is hilly and abounds in evergreen
forests. The sandy beaches on the edge of meandering coastline
of the islands 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, the
underwater marinelife and corals,
crystal clear water and mangroove-lined
creeks offer a dreams view of the rare gifts of nature.
