Now, this is the trip for adventure lovers. Well, Chidiatapu is the best sunset point in Port Blair and thousands of travelers visit this destination, however, very few know that this destination also hosts a trekking trail known as Munda Pahad. Get a chance to trek through the forest to reach the southwest corners of the South Andaman Islands.
We start around 10 AM from your hotel to Chidiyatapu. This destination is around 30 KM from the main city and is famous for sunset view and bird watching. The road passes through forest and small hills up to the Chidia tapu. From Port Blair, the journey would take around one hour to reach Chidia tapu. If you are interested to watch the sunset it is advisable to take an afternoon trip to this place.
Remains of trees uprooted during the Tsunami in 2004 are still present near the beach. There are no restaurants or food stalls available inside the park; however, small hotels are present at the entrance. While travelling to this place, the sea will be toward your left side. On your way, you would pass through the Kalapathar, a trail of black rocks and beach. Stop here to take some pictures and proceed to Chidia Tapu.
Upon reaching Chiditapu, we start our trek to the Munda Pahad. A guide who knows the turf accompanies you during the trek throughout the jungle and return. The trek is covered in approximately 40 - 60 minutes, and that depends on how fast you are. And finally, you reach the southernmost end of the island where you can take pictures of your loved ones and spend some time with your family. Upon completion of the trek, our guide helps you to return through the same route. Finally, we return to Port Blair in the evening where we drop you back at the hotel to relax and unwind.
