The Mud Volcano of Baratang Island is one of a kind geological feature where the lava pit erupts semi-solid mud and gases like methane, nitrogen, and carbon dioxide. In the Great Andamans, this island is the only place in India having mud volcanoes that erupt sporadically. The local Jarwas call these “jalki” and to visit these, you will have to pass through the indigenous forest area of Jarawa Tribal Reserve and the sea of Baratang Jetty. The Mud Volcano looks interesting with the creamy textured mud layers creating a crater on top, which is a result of the mud spilling over from the edge.

  • There is nothing much to see here. Just some bubbles coming out of mud. If you don't understand the phenomenon there is nothing for you. Only visit if you have time and you understand what a mud volcano means. to see this you have to walk a long way

  • A good place to visit. Saw a few active mud volcanos. A place you can visit once!

  • Located a few kilometers from the Baratang port, one can hire a local taxi to reach the place. The road leading to the place is treacherous. After reaching the spot one have to hike a few hundred meters to the volcano. It is protected by the Geological survey of India. In 2016 a park type entrance structure was being inaugurated as a tourist attraction initiative.

  • There are boards displaying information about the formation of volcanoes. The volcanoes are dried up in summer and have thick mud oozing out of it. The best time to visit mud volcanoes are during and after monsoon as per islanders.

  • Really a mini volcano, the erupted materials being mud. Those who want to see how a volcano erupts this is the place to remember. Thrilled to see such an amazing thing. But the journey is very tiresome
