Baratang Island & Limestone caves :

  • We cross through Jarawa tribe forest reserve which opens at 6 am and 9 am. Its around 100 km and will take around 2 hours.
  • We will get to see Jarawa tribes during the drive. Photos are not allowed.
  • We started around 6 am in a private cab from port blair and reached the check post around 8.30 am.
  • If you want to visit Barataang and return back to Port Blair, you would have to start by 3 am and reach check post for 6 am.
  • Cab will drop you at Barataang island and from there we need to take a boat.
  • Limestone is a sedimentary rock formed at the bottom of the sea. It is formed by the compression over millions of years of the gradual deposits of many ingredients such as marine life, shells, skeletons and corals.
