Mount Harriet, located in the southern part of Andaman and Nicobar Islands, has a height of around 365 metre. Situated at a distance of 56 km from the capital city, Port Blair, during the British rule, it was the summer capital headquarters of chief Commissioner.

It is the highest point in South Andaman from where visitors can enjoy beautiful views of entire cluster of islands. In addition, tourists can also enjoy a natural trail available up to Madhuban, where variegated birds, animals and butterflies can be witnessed. However, before taking this trail, tourists need the permission from chief Wildlife Warden, located in Haddo. In addition, it is mandatory for tourists to obtain permission, if planning an overnight stay at Mount Harriet from Warden at Port Blair.

The Mount is also home to a National Park, where tourists can enjoy wildlife tours. In addition, tourists can also come across elephants being trained in this national park for carrying logs.

"On earth, it is the second heaven"

  • 6.5/7
  • Posted Jun 22, 2016
In our life time once we must visit to Andaman as it is a heaven. All beaches are too clean and neat. For Scuba dive there are no words to explain. Rose Island, North-bay and Baratang is must to visit in Andaman including Cellular Jail. Even museums also.

One of the best places to see the natural beauty. The view is just great. Children can enjoy themselves. Advice to go a bit early so that you could find a bright sunny weather for better view.

"Good sea view"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted Oct 27, 2013
The major attraction of this place is 20 rupee note view point. The place is one of the hilltop location, good for photography. We visited the place on our way back from Baratang. The place is managed by Andaman forest department.
