1300 km from the Indian mainland in the middle of the Bay of Bengal there are over 300 smaller densely forested islands with white sandy beaches and crystal clear water.

Geographically closer to the Southeast Asian countries of Myanmar, Thailand and Indonesia, the islands are nevertheless a Union Territory of India.

Until recently only inhabited by tribal peoples, the islands are becoming increasingly touristy and the dream of an island paradise holiday at affordable prices in rupees can easily be fulfilled.

White sandy beaches invite you to swim and relax, the northern Andaman Islands to hike and culture and the crystal-clear sea to snorkel and dive.

The Andaman is a real diving paradise with many different coral reefs around the islands of Havelock and Neil.

Chalo Reisen works with Dive India , one of the best diving schools in India.

Here is an article on scuba diving in the Andaman .

Those who love an active vacation can rent a bike, go hiking, kayaking and snorkeling. Here is another article about the Andaman Islands as a holiday destination for inspiration.

Your rickshaw driver is your guide today. He knows about the walking times and will take you to all the island’s attractions on time.

Day 8 Drive to Diglipur, North Andaman Islands

Today is a long and exciting 325 km drive on the road through the dense tropical forest and Jarawa tribal reservation. A member of the Jarawa tribe can often be seen driving through the tribal reservation. On the journey we take the route of Andaman Grand Trunk Road passing through Baratang Island, Rangat & Mayabunder. We also experience the lifeline of the Andaman during this trip, the vehicle ferry that transports vehicles from one island to another.

Day 9 Ross and Smith Islands

On this day we visit the heart of Diglipur, Ross and Smith Island. Two islands separated by a sandbar are a treat to see and experience. Your journey begins by boat at Arial Bay Jetty. It takes about 30 minutes by boat to reach the twin islands. Pristine beaches on this island are a real treat. Spend the day enjoying the turquoise waters, strolling the sandbar that borders both Ross and Smith Island. Then you can visit Aerial Bay Beach which is one of the turtle nesting sites in Diglipur.

Day 10 Hike to Saddle Peak

At a mighty 732m above sea level, Saddle Peak is the highest point in the Andaman Islands. A day hike leads from Kalipur Beach through the jungle to the highest mountain in the Andaman Islands, which offers magnificent views of the surrounding islands.

Day 11 Ramnagar Turtle Beach

Today we begin our journey to a turtle nesting site, Ramnagar Beach. This beach is regularly visited by Olive Ridley’s turtles to hatch eggs. The caregivers at this destination help these turtles protect the eggs they lay and help the young turtles make their first attempts at swimming in open water. Experience this during your trip to Ramnagar Beach.
