Q10. How to reach Baratang?
Ans. To gain entry to the Baratang you will have to get past the guarded check post at the start of the journey. Two-Wheelers are not allowed to get past the check post so the only two options that you will have is to travel via a cab or bus (In order to book bus tickets visit https://ants.andaman.gov.in/Citizen/BookticketNew.aspx). The check post clearance is done at 6 A.M and 9 A.M, so you will have to leave early, preferably at 4 A.M or 6 A.M from Port Blair, respectively. There are small shops and stalls for refreshments, where you can enjoy some snacks after the road trip. After passing the check post, you can see dense forest surrounding the road from both sides and might be able to spot Jarawas, if you are lucky. Please note that photography, talking and offering food to the Jarawas is strictly prohibited. As soon as you reach the end of the forest road you will reach the Baratang Jetty, which has another check-post. Here you can wait for the vehicle ferry to arrive, which will take you to the destinations you came here to visit. Please not you have to buy two separate bus tickets for both the journeys i.e. 1 ticket for Port Blair to Baratang and 1 ticket for Baratang to Port Blair.
