Welcome to Middle & North Andaman
Beyond the sun, sea and sand, the Andamans unfold into dense jungle that feels as primeval as the Jurassic, a green tangle of ancient forest that could have been birthed in Mother Nature’s subconscious. This wild, antediluvian side of the islands can be seen on a long journey north from Port Blair to Middle and North Andaman. The loping, controversial Andaman Trunk Rd travels northwards, slicing through the homeland of the Jarawa tribe and crossing tannin-red rivers prowled by saltwater crocodiles. The roll-on, roll-off ferries en route are slowly being replaced by bridges.
The main workaday towns of Rangat, Mayabunder and Diglipur are the springboards for a series of beautiful outlying islands, while quiet Long Island draws a trickle of travelling escapees.
