    May 24, 2014 MintValley Tourism News, Kochi

    A new monsoon package to the exotic archipelago paradise, Bangaram, will commence on 01st June till mid-September, 2014 to entice the enthusiastic travelers who has hitherto been deprived of the pleasure of witnessing the magic of Lakshadweep Monsoon and enjoying the melody of rain.

    Bangaram is one of the few, virtually untouched and unspoiled, tropical island systems left on our planet. The Southwest monsoons starting from June to September in the island has all that excitement and romantic serenity. It presents a breathtaking experience when the vegetation looks brilliant colours than ever and the veil of rain adds a different hue to the beauty of lagoons and the blue seas beyond. The sudden bursts of torrential downpours which usually last for a short time, are always succeeded by bright sunshine.

    Bioluminescence Paradise in the Lakshadweep Sea

    During the dark, the algal blooms of bioluminescent plankton washed ashore makes the coral beach a magical minefield.

    Bioluminescence refers to the process of visible light emission in living organisms such as the glow of a firefly. Bioluminescents are found throughout marine habitats like algal, fish, squid, shrimp and jellyfish. When there’s high levels of bioluminescence on the surface water, the sea appear uniformly glowing snow white. This ‘milky sea’ phenomenon is generated by marine species, mostly by bioluminescent algae and other luminescent creatures particularly common in the NW Indian Ocean at the time of the Southwest Monsoon Season.

    Bangaram lies very close to Agatti and share one of the most beautiful lagoons in Lakshadweep. Three small islands of Thinnakara, Parali-I and Parali-II also lie close to Bangaram enclosed by the same atoll. Comfortable and safe beach tents are designed and made available to the tourists. The tents are built on the lagoon side/beachfront as an ideal shelter to enjoy the beauty of nature..
