Lakshadweep

MARINE CAMP AT LAKSHADWEEP, Thinakara Island

Date: 11th - 14th January 2020

Lakshadweep is a group of islands, 200–440 km off the southwest coast of India. These islands form the smallest union territory of the country. The Lakshadweep region has about 600 species of fish, 78 species of coral, and over 100 species of other marine invertebrates. This is the perfect opportunity to explore the fascinating marine life underwater.

This year BNHS will be visiting Tinnakara Island. Part of the Bangaram atoll, the charming isolated Thinnakara Island shares the same lagoon with the Bangaram Island. You need not worry if you do not know swimming; you can still enjoy the deep blue sea and move among the amazing corals, fishes, shells, shrimps and crabs. Most of the snorkelling will be in waist-deep coral lagoons.
