Photo Gallery


Forested Narcondum volcano lies about 140 km NNE of Barren Island. Both volcanoes are island possessions of India in the Andaman Sea and are part of a volcanic arc extending from Sumatra to Burma (Myanmar). The small 3 x 4 km wide conical island, located about 130 km east of North Andaman Island, is densely vegetated and capped by three peaks. No evidence of historical volcanism is present, although the summit region is less densely vegetated.
