We have had several trekking expeditions to the opened places. One can go trekking through the nature trail from Mt. Harriet to Madhuban and enjoy the rare forest life, flora and fauna. There are other trekking routes also. Sometimes, trekking expeditions are only a day or two long. But on other occasions, trekking at Andaman and Nicobar islands can extend for weeks or even months.
Trekking in the Andaman Islands is rewarding, as most of the islands are covered with thick tropical rainforests, teeming with wildlife and rare and endemic plants, including about 2.200 plant and 270 bird species. Hiking on the Andaman’s is best to be done with a local guide, but you can also go camping on your own in the beaches on many of the islands. However, please note that over-night Camping at many of the uninhabited Islands is not allowed.
So, put on your walking shoes and experience the excitement!
We also do smaller treks or better described as gentle walks visiting remote friendly village’s on the way at Baratang.
Our favourite trekking walking tour is over 3 days at Diglipur, North Andaman. You can trek through subtropical forest to the top and back from Kalipur in about six to seven hours; the views from the peaks onto the archipelago are incredible. Tourists need to take permission from Forest Department to trek through this Park. A 740 feet climb leads to Saddle Peak, the highest point in A&N islands which offers an aerial view of A&N, the second peak "ice degree peak" is the coldest point while the third peak provides a fantastic view spanning Diglipur to Mayabunder.
The Most Exciting spot for trekking at Diglipur is Alfred cave which is also known as the cluster of 41 caves. If you are planning a visit, start early in the morning so that you are back by evening. A trek through the primary jungle leads to Alfred caves-a cluster of amazing 41 caves. It is a den for swift lets and fruit eating bats. Best time to visit the caves is from October to March. The caves with a very narrow entrance open up into chain of small caves inside.
Andaman Leisure provides you with the Guide and Escort and all amenities required to complete your trek to make it a mark-able journey.
