Heading out for the Barren Island volcano tour is highly suggested for those travellers, who are always on the lookout for something unique and rare. As evident from the name, Barren Island has a deserted and barren look. It is uninhabited and houses the only active volcano in India. A completely offbeat excursion, visiting Barren Island is the kind of experience that chills down the spine by promising a once-in-a-lifetime adventure. Exploring Barren Island is one of the spookiest things to do in the Andamans owing to the presence of only a few bird species, bats like flying foxes and rats inhabiting the place. A fun-filled ride on the island that is located in the middle of the sea, this uncommon yet enthralling journey takes you to a mysterious place with absolutely no sign of human inhabitation in sight.
Barren Island is located 138 kilometers northeast of Port Blair in the Andaman Sea. The trip lasts eight to ten hours and promises unparalleled adventure. If you want to see something extraordinary, then don’t forget to include this exclusive journey in your travel itinerary. The Barren Volcano is the only confirmed active volcano in South Asia. Also, along a chain of volcanoes from Sumatra to Myanmar, this is the only active volcano. If it’s a lucky day and if you are also fortunate enough, then you can see the volcano erupting lava and ash. Its first eruption was recorded in 1787. If you are willing to have a sightseeing tour in Havelock, Andaman Island, then you can do so by renting boats/ferries. However, visitors are restricted to land ashore.
