It takes an hour long boat ride through mangrove swamps and a thirty minute hike through bamboo forests to reach the world’s largest limestone caves.
These caves are situated in the Baratang Island of the Andamans. One needs a good source of artificial light before entering these caves as it is pitch dark inside.
But once you are inside these caves, the beauty is unimaginable. The stalactites and stalagmites that have withstood nature’s erosion process over time form various interesting shapes and figures.
You have to just let your imagination loose to recognize an elephant or corals or a shiva linga amidst these limestone forms. Only a small portion of these caves are open to the tourists, but this small portion is enough to let your imagination run wild.
These largest limestone caves in the world are not only a great natural wonder, but offer a fantastic experience for the travel lover.
