It is all together a different experience spending days amid the calm atmosphere and enjoying the laid-back ambiance while marveling at the creations of nature. No place offers such satisfaction that Andaman offers and that is why this destination is loved by people from all walks of life.

These forests are home to many species of plants, and animals can be frequently sighted roaming freely in their natural abode.
