The world of mangroves

When you are going through the dense mangrove swamps amidst the various creeks of Baratang Island, be aware as you will definitely be caught by surprise. For their world is truly unique and extremely inspiring.

It is this world of mangroves that makes Baratang Island so special. Baratang Island is located in South Andaman and is one of the best tropical environments in India.

These mangroves are so twisted and convoluted at so many places then one wonders as to where they start and where they end. While some of these mangroves grow up to 30 feet in height, the others grow only up to 30 centimetres or just slightly more.

Now I have been to the mangrove forests of the Sunderbans in West Bengal, India a couple of times, but the mangrove forests of Baratang Island look more like a truer representation. Now, I might not be an expert, but I guess the remoteness of this place and the lack of habitation might be the reasons behind this inspiring environment.
