How To Reach Mount Harriet National Park
Reaching Mount Harriet From Port Blair
Mount Harriet is 55 kilometers by road and just 15 kilometers by ferry from Port Blair. The roadway is not something that is suggested to reach this place as it will be just a waste of time and money to opt for traveling all over by road. Because the distance, cost and time consumed in traveling almost triples. So we are here to introduce the most convenient way of reaching Mount Harriet for you to plan it on the itinerary of your visit to Andamans.
From Port Blair, you are supposed to take a cab that takes you to the Chatham Jetty. Here, you can take a ferry that takes about 15 minutes to help you cross the sea. These ferries don’t have a fixed schedule but are available at an interval of 15-20 minutes. So there might be a waiting time near the Jetty. This ferry will take you to Bambooflat from where you can take local jeeps to go all the way up to the hills of Mount Harriet. The ferry that you chose for travel from Chatham to Bambooflat is a vehicle ferry. Vehicle ferry as we say in Andaman Island carries passengers as well as automobiles like bikes, cars, and even buses. So interestingly, depending upon the crowd for boarding the ferry, the cab that you had hired from Port Blair can travel with you in the same ferry and take you straightaway to the Mount Harriet.
