Places to visit in Baratang Island ----
Limestone Caves ---
A little dark when you enter but as you shine your flashlight at it, you will stand in awe. You will be wonderstruck when you see the amazing natural limestone formations. The entire cave has been formed by centuries of constant erosion by CO2 dissolved water. It is really amazing to see all these limestone structures dangling off the roof and growing from the ground up. Nature has done a fine job here as the limestone has slowly formed into some intricate and interesting shapes.
Mud Volcano ---
Mud volcano are basically formed by the ejection of geo-excreted gases and liquids. A major portion of the gases released is methane, but gases like carbon dioxide and nitrogen are also released. Mostly these mud volcanoes spew out everything in a semi-solid state. At first sight it might look very gooey and not worth your time.

It just seems to be a place not from anywhere here. The most beautiful sight at Parrot Island is during dusk. When the sun is about to set, you can see flocks of parrots and parakeets just crowding in the orange skies. It is a humbling view when you see the sky filling up with the birds, squawking in unison and is a very beautiful thing to watch.
