Island Excursions from Port Blair

Remnants of an opulent past beckon at Ross Island, once British administrative centre for all the islands. Ruins of bazaars and community centres are overgrown with moss and creepers, making them seem much older than they really are. As you walk around looking for the perfect angle to photograph this memory, straight across you’ll see Viper Island with its infamous gallows where Indian Freedom Fighters were tortured for their dissent. Only a deafening silence prevails.
