With some of the most pristine landscapes, dense forests, unique history and magnificent beaches, Andaman and Nicobar offers her visitors an experience of their lifetime. Historically inhabited by native tribes since the Paleolithic era, Andaman today is home to a fairly cosmopolitan population. It is an union territory of Republic of India with its captal city Port Blair.
These tropical islands is home to many endangered species of flora and fauna, along with some protected and highly vulnerable ancient tribes. Insensible and luxury tourism is imposing a hard challenge to the already fragile ecosystem.
Regular tour operators and hoteliers are mostly active in Port Blair City-Havelock-Neil circuit and hence these are most well-advertised destinations. But Andaman is much larger and spectacularly diverse than these three typically over-hyped, over marketed and over-exploited destinations. Don't get us wrong. Of course these places are beautiful in their own rights. Just that they are a tiny part of a much bigger story. Ixzire tour packages covers Diglipur from the North to Hut Bay to the South and almost all destinations in between. Our well reserached tour plans are for people who love nature, want to go beyond ordinary and have an explorer embedded in their soul.
