Lakshadweep _ Chetlat

...............................................................................................................................................................................

 

 

Lakshadweep tourist places - Lakshadweep the nation of 36 islands is very far from the hustles and bustles of urban life. In this smallest union territory of India only one sound prevails. This is the sound of waves crashing against the shorelines and scream of seabirds. However, amidst this innocent sound of nature, there are many beautiful sights to relish as many attractive tourist places in Lakshadweep abound. Of the various picturesque places, Chetlat is the most exotic and exclusive retreat to seek.

Located at 11o41 north latitude and 72o43 east longitude, Chetlat is the northern most island. It belongs to Aminidivi group of islands. Being about 1200 meters in length and 400 meters in breadth and extending over an area of 255 acres, this idyllic island looks like an upturned boat.

According to historical records Chetlat had to put up with the cruel treatments of the Portuguese Pirates in the 16th century. Many natives were put to death and still many were confined in prisons.

However, ripping apart the historical past of Chetlat in Lakshadweep, it can be said that it is a garden of coconut. Apart from coconut trees in this island cheerani Paruthi (A species of cotton tree), jack fruit tree and Murunga (Drumstick) are found in plenty.

This Chetlat Lakshadweep is also a blessed home to numerous marine lives. In the extensive shallows of the sea renowned fish Tuna most importantly the skip jack variety is found. Along with this, Whales and tortoises are also found in the nearby region of the island. Besides, few varieties of bird and animal species can also be discovered here. In this island rats are very common to find. However, cats and water hen also exist.

Agatti Airport and flights from Kochi the capital of Kerala pave the way for entering Chetlat Lakshadweep Island. Also ship is a good option to reach this idyllic destination. A number of passenger ships operate from Kochi to this place.
