Adding to the interest is its remote area, approximately 1370km from the Indian territory, which means the islands are geologically more Southeast Asia – only 150km from Indonesia and 190km from Myanmar.
Containing 572 islands, just twelve or so are available to travelers, Havelock by a wide margin being the most well known for its breathtaking shorelines and plunging. The Nicobar Islands are entirely untouchable to voyagers, similar to the different patches of inborn zones.
