Our vehicle will be with you early morning to take you to Webi. The journey length is 230kms and will take 8hrs (12hrs including halts). You will be provided with a packed breakfast and snacks. You will depart Port Blair at 04:00 and reach the Jirkatang check-post at 05:30, where you will have an opportunity for tea and a light snack while your escort completes the formalities to join the convoy through the Jarawa Reserve section of the Andaman Trunk Road.

While at Baratang, we will stop to visit its famous limestone caves. The journey to the caves involves a scenic (shared) speedboat ride eastwards through the mangrove-fringed Middle Strait, followed by a short trek through mangroves, forest, and field to the location of the caves with stalactite and stalagmite formations in the karst landscape. A 30-minute drive across Baratang will lead to the next vehicle ferry crossing point for Kadamtala on Middle Andaman Island, which you can expect to reach by 11:30.

At the other end, our vehicle will be waiting to bring you back should you choose to use it. Jungle survival: learning to fish the traditional way/crabbing in the creek. A local Karen villager will take you to one of the seasonally productive creeks to teach you their local fishing techniques, and you can try your hand at it to gauge your proficiency. Depending upon the phase of the moon, the time may be right for crabbing, in which case, you can learn how the Karens trap and gather mud crabs, a local delicacy.
Day 4

Webi

Cooking classes for Karen cuisine. Your host will help you prep and cook traditional Karen dishes including one or more of the following dishes Karen Salad, Napi paste from fish, Karen rice noodles, Tapo Pa (smoked meat/fish/veg), etc. Participate in farming (specific activity depending upon season).

Depending upon the season, you may be in time to assist with either rice planting, transplanting, harvesting, grinding, threshing, or winnowing.
