Unforgettable Journey To Andaman and Nicobar Islands

It has always been my dream to travel to some world’s exotic location and pen them down in my travelogue. But my busy schedule forces me to limit my thoughts. Way back in 2006, my parents planned a tour to Andaman and Nicobar Islands as they would get one paid holiday from the Company they worked for. This was once in lifetime chance for an average middle class family because the vacation is sponsored. They asked me to join them as it had been years that I spent vacation with them.

This vacation was exciting because it was first time that my parents would board a flight to Andaman and Nicobar islands. The Company had chosen the national carrier of India- Air India for its employ. Most families were excited about this air journey because some of them had never experienced this.

The employees were expected to join this tour in small batches with their families. Since we were from eastern India and from steel city of Orissa, our nearest airport was Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose international airport, Kolkata. From here, we had catch the flight to Andaman and Nicobar islands.

The flight journey was funny because most men from our batch were amazed to see beautiful air hostess. For them this was a rare seen where a smartly dressed young lady would come up to them for service. They could not keep their eyes off as they started instructing the flight rules.  I was laughing out loud from within but had to control it. Since I was on a holiday , I was waiting for the plane to land in Port Blair as soon as possible.

I had Googled the previous night that Andaman and Nicobar islands nestled midway between Burma and India in Bay of Bengal. It has an archipelago of 572 pristine emerald islands, out of which 36 are inhabited. These islands were virtually cut off for many years, therefore its history has always been shrouded in legend and mystery. It has an epic connection and said to be the stepping stones used by Monkey God ‘Hanuman’ to head towards Sri Lanka in order tom save Sita- Lord Ram’s consort.

Popularly, Andaman and Nicobar islands are also known as’ nature’s paradise’ and ‘Veritable Garden of Eden’. It is an abode to endless varieties of flora and fauna along with long stretches of marine life.  These pristine white beaches are covered with lush green coconut palm trees. Its breathtaking beauty, thrilling water sports, pollution-free environment and warm hospitality attracts thousands of visitors every year from all over the world.

My experience was memorable because I could not expect more than this. We had number of splendid adventure opportunities including number of thrilling water sports like scuba diving, snorkeling, swimming and others. Adventure enthusiasts can enjoy some beautiful and arduous treks to lush green pastures of this island. On first day of our journey, we visited Port Blair which is quite and laid back city of Andaman and Nicobar Islands.

It has sole entry and exit point. Our day was spent by walking around the city and relish on mouth –watering seafood. Then we headed to see some of the best places of Port Blair like The Cellular Jail, Ross Island, Viper Island, Andaman Water Sports Complex, Chatham Island& Sawmill etc. For me this was most unforgettable vacation of my life.
