0 comments Havelock Island Beach Resort

This is a popular activity among nature lovers and enthusiasts. While taking a rubber plantation tour, you will get to see and learn about the rubber making process. The Andaman Islands has a huge zone that is home to as many as ten thousand elastic trees. A passageway with many brilliant cocoa sheets of drying elastic can be witnessed at this little known ranch in the South Andaman. The columns of exquisite trees offer breathtaking views. If you are a curious wanderer, then you should definitely go and see Mongluton rubber plantations in Wandoor. The guided tour takes you through rows and rows of rubber trees while explaining about the processing of raw rubber into hard rubber sheets. Accumulation of elastic from trees (known as tapping) is the first step of the procedure. In the handling unit, it is later moved through. A wide variety of spices are also grown here that includes cinnamon, clove, pepper, and betel.

The Andaman Islands support the distinctive vegetation grown here. The natives of the island are happy about rubber being one of the most significant cultivations. You can choose to visit the large plantation near Wandoor if you want to do something different and unique on the island. You will get a clear picture as soon as you enter the plantation estate. A mesmerising view of the large areas is displayed by thousands of golden colour rubber sheets and the collecting jars fitted on each tree. As a whole, a total of 931 hectares of rubber plantations are found in the Andamans.
