Yeratta is located 8 Kilometers away from Rangat. It has abundant mangrove life. The harbour of Rangat is in Yerrata and is known as the Yerrata Jetty. It is a great spot to observe and study a diverse variety of mangroves. As an initiative towards creating awareness among the general public and tourists about mangroves, department of Environment and Forests has established a Mangrove Interpretation Centre which has attractive display panels depicting various species of mangroves found in these islands.
There is a mangrove view watchtower erected in Yeratta which provides a panoramic view of the mangroves and the adjacent tropical forests from the top of it. This 13-meter long tower is the only one of its kind in the entire A & N Islands which provides such a view of the mangroves. Though during our last visit, this tower was not in good shape. Hoping to see this getting renovated soon.
The mangrove walkway at Yeratta is beautiful and you can even see how mangrove samples get harvested at Yeratta in Rangat.
