Picture shows MV Strait Island berthed at Baratang Jetty after disembarking tourists to visit the picturesque Limestone Caves, Mud Volcano and other tourist spots in the region on Sunday. In compliance of the directions of Apex Court, the Andaman and Nicobar Islands opened the alternate sea route to Baratang from Port Blair on October 1 to ferry tourists to different parts in the North and Middle Andaman region. A good number of visitors availed the service and were found elated over launch of the alternate sea route which, besides consuming less than three hours for a one-way trip, provides relief from the bumpy road journey on the currently battered ATR road network.
