Mt. Harriet National Park

An interesting ride across the city to the Northern side of Port Blair brings us to the Haddo Jetty for a ferry crossing to Mt. Harriet National Park. This amazing Park boasts a good number of endemic species & I get some of my lifers from here. It is a gradual & very enjoyable climb walk up the the Forest Rest house that has a distinct colonial air with its wood paneling & ambience
Not a good photo of the Oriole

This flighty butterfly kept us all running after it - it is the Andaman Birdwing, one of the endemics
