Apart from walking around the busier parts of the Andaman Islands to experience the markets, bazaars and other daily life, trekking and hiking can be physically demanding. Always check with hotel or resort and use local guides to arrange paperwork for you, as some national park areas may require purchase of permit from local governmental offices or require additional fees for cameras or foreign visitors. It is extremely important to carry more water and snacks than you think you will need to prevent dehydration, and never hike alone in the more remote national parks or near tribal reserves. The islands are true wilderness and rain forest, with abundant wildlife, so watch where you step, avoid swimming in streams, and bring plenty of insect repellent and sunscreen.
