LIMESTONE CAVE, ANDAMAN, INDIA : Limestone is a sedimentary rock formed at the bottom of the sea. It is formed by the compression over millions of years of the gradual deposits of many ingredients such as marine life, shells, skeletons and corals.
There are massive sedimentary limestone formations, some of which are hanging from the top, some growing from the ground. These caves are constantly evolving in shape and size. As you go inside the caves, you can actually see different patterns that are naturally formed itself by limestone.
Some caves are so dense, deep and dark inside that you need to light a torch to be able to see anything. Also it may get slippery inside the caves so it is advisable to come in floaters or shoes. It should be, on your must visit list, when you come to Baratang, Andaman.From Baratang island (Nilambur Jetty) Lime Stone Caves are half an hour boat ride through a wide creek which leads to Nayadera Jetty and further one and half km. walk through tropical forest. The boat ride that connects the location of these caves with Baratang jetty is magnificent. It passes through a narrow mangrove creek and that is an experience in itself.My entry to WPC Transmogrify with these photographs of Lime Stone Caves of Andaman, India.
