The Union Territory of the Andaman and Nicobars is an archipelago of 572 islands in the Bay of Bengal,1200 km from the mainland. It stretches for more than 700 km.from north to south but only 36 islands are inhabited. As on most equatorial islands, it rains for nearly 8 months of the year. Ocean breezes also ensure that, though temperatures range from 23 - 30 degrees, it is generally pleasant. The Andaman group consists of the North, Middle, south, little Andamans, and Richies Archipelago, besides many smaller islands. The Nicobar group comprises the Great Nicobar, Little Nicobar, Car Nicobar, Nancowry, Katchal, and Cowra. Port Blair on South Andaman Island is the capital and entry point to the islands.However,only a few of the islands are open to visitors and outsiders are not encouraged to visit the Nicobar group.
