Viper Island Reviews & Ratings
Another beauty from the islands of the Andaman. This place has got rich history from the British regime and the Indian freedom struggle. Visit the place to know more about the history. A good place to spend a little time. However I have a little concern about the place. There is no food and drinks option available on the island. There should be some for the tourists. Do visit if you want dome really good photographs.
As Epic as everyone said : These place perfectly shows how cruel the British government is. How they tortured the Indian people. I liked these place because it has very fascinating. This tiny serene, beautiful island is situated inside the portblair harbor 20 minutes boat journey. The island derives it's name from the vessel "viper" in which Lt. Archibald Blair came to these island in 1789 with the purpose of penal settlement.the vessel it is believed met with an accident and it is wreckage was found near these island . viper island witnesses the untold suffering of the freedom fighter head to undergo.convicts who are found guilty of violating the rules of The penal settlement....riddle I am always thrilled to know the dark history of our country so I like this place very much. So I recommend you guys whenever u came to portblair just visit these place it will definitely overwhelmed u Hope my review helps u lot !!!👍👍👍
