Destinations: Mount Harriet NP, South Andaman Island, India
This tropical evergreen forested mountain (at just 365m the highest point on South Andaman) is easily accessed by a tarmac road that runs from its foot to the peak. Great views over the sea from there, too. It is a national park and home to many of the Andaman Islands' endemic birds, including: Andaman Woodpecker, Andaman Shama, Andaman Bulbul, Andaman Drongo, Andaman Crake, Andaman Woodpigeon, Andaman Coucal and Andaman Serpent-eagle. To reach Mount Harriet, take the ferry from Port Blair to Bamboo Flats (20 minutes) and get a taxi to the top before walking down. Of course there is other wildlife too, for example, watch out for leeches!
Before joining any wildlife watching or birding tour, wherever in the world, try to establish if the travel company you are considering booking with operates in an environmentally friendly, responsible manner.
