Closer to Thailand and Burma than the Indian Main land, this Indian Archipelago comprises of some of the most remote islands in the country. If you often find yourself craving to take a plunge in deep, blue waters or hiking through dense tropical trails or witnessing an active volcano, then the Andaman Islands might be a perfect match for you. Consisting of around 500 islands, this archipelago is home to some the most ancient tribes in the world namely, The Sentinelese Tribe, The Jarawa Tribe, The Onge Tribe and The Great Andamanese Tribe. Now outnumbered by huge numbers of Indians settling in, these tribes are said to be living on these islands for more than 60,000 years. How these tribes arrived on these islands, during the early migration of man, still continues to mystify many exlplorers. Geologists say that during the glacial period when the ocean levels were much lower, a land bridge between Burma and Andaman existed which paved way for these Negrito races occupying Myanmar at that time to migrate to these islands. The areas that are now inhabited by the tribes are off-limits for us modern day humans and require special permissions to visit these areas. These islands are also a home to a variety of flora and fauna. The waters here boast of some of the most un-spoilt marine reserves around the world and is a diver's paradise.
