This place is supposed the most remote Indian land. Also claimed by Myanmar. It is located in the Andaman Sea, NE of the Andaman archipelago. The only human occupation there are guards from the Indian Government. The island is famous for its transparent waters, its unique (and protected) wildlife, and its sleeping volcano.
The main Andaman island is 114 km away, on which is Port Blair, the local hub.
The two volcanic Islands, Barren Island and Narcondum Island foreign tourists may be allowed to visit Barren Island on board vessels but no landing ashore. Govt Administration would provide escort to the tourists visiting the Islands. For Narcondum Islands it has been decided that it may be opened to foreign tourists for diving and unescorted day visits. Narcondam is essentially accessible only from a live-aboard vessel as there are no facilities anywhere nearby for accommodation. Sometimes Thai live-aboards come here, or you can rent a private yacht from either Port Blair or from Phuket. the Infiniti live-aboard takes a small group of divers every year between February to April and is the best way to reach here.
The highlight birds were the Narcondam Hornbills and the Pied Imperial Pigeons. It was the nesting time for the hornbills, so they are found both at nests as well as feeding at large fig trees. This bird only exists on Narcondam.
