Ross Island, Port Blair

Inspirock Rating:
4.2/5 based on 950+ reviews on the web
At Ross Island, explore an abandoned settlement overtaken by the roots of wild Ficus plants, giving it an otherwordly feel. Residential structures still stand firm, despite that fact that they're being swallowed by nature. Examine the old church, hospital, and bazaar as you walk the brick walkways. The island was first abandoned because of severe weather conditions, which drastically increased the mortality rate. However, after World War II, the British governed the uninhabited island until they handed it over to the Indian Navy in 1979. Today tourists swarm the place, so book your ferry boat early, and remember that visitors must sign in upon entry and exit.
