Boat Cruise through Mangrove Swamps of Baratang Island

The one thing that mesmerized me completely at the tropical Baratang Island were the mangrove swamps.

They are so very different from what we get to see in the rest of the world and their presence signifies that all is not lost in this era of environmental pollution.

Their low dense canopies, their ever convoluted roots and their mesmerizing glaze of green add a glint in the eye of the tropical loving tourist.

These mangrove swamps that has settled itself amongst the many creeks of the Baratang Island in the Andaman sea are no less than a natural wonder to me. These mangroves are the reason this island and all such nearby mangrove occupied islands escaped the brunt of the tsunami in 2004 and continue to escape the fury of the tropical cyclones.
