If you see the Andaman and Nicobar Islands on the world map you’ll feel like this is the isolated islands and the separated one. But actually one state in India and once used to be the British colony. For knowing the tragic history behind Islands all should visit Cellular Jail (Kala Pani) here, located in Port Blair, the capital of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands. Andaman and Nicobar are one of the most picturesque, natural and pristine islands in the world. It was a thrill experience to visit the Andaman Islands this end of the May, yeah I traveled during monsoon but trust me this islands even beautiful in this season and actually nature comes with different looks in different seasons. You just got to see and feel the beauty of the Andaman Islands.
The Andaman and Nicobar Islands are 1400 km away from India and connected with the Bay of Bengal (West) and Andaman Sea (East). Myanmar and Thailand are nearer from Andaman and Nicobar. There are 572 islands and islets but only 34 – 36 islands are populated. The Andaman Islands are the most popular among tourists which divided into North, Middle and South Andaman. South Andaman is the most visited tourist destination here. Foreigners are not permitted to visit the Nicobar Islands.
