have to carry drinking water, as there is no bottled water available.
Only Indians are allowed to visit Car Nicobar, that too with a permit. The rest of the islands like Katchal, Nancowry, Indira Point and Campbell Bay are closed to foreign visitors. The Nicobarese population consists mainly of tribals who stay in thatched huts on stilts. The Destination
