Mud Volcano |
This mud volcano is one more main attraction for visitors travelling in Andaman islands. Though this Volcano is nature's wonder, it may disappoint the people who see this physically. This Volcano is nearer to Baratang Jetty of Andaman islands (middle Andaman). It takes atleast a day to visit this place and return to Port Blair. People have to travel through road in a Jarwan tribal reserve (forest area) and cross the sea at Baratang jetty. After crossing the sea people reach the Uttara Jetty . From Uttara Jetty this place is 20 minutes journey by road.
The standard package for this trip includes Limestone Caves also. After crossing the Baratang jetty, travellors first go towards Limestone Caves and then return back to the same Uttara Jetty. The Sea Journey and the Journey through Mangrooves is a memorable one. From Uttara Jetty visitors have to travel towards Mud Volcano which is only 20minutes journey. Vehicles reach nearer to mud volcano and then the place can be reached by 10minutes walk. There is a small hut constructed nearer to volcano erruption to take rest and relax.
