North Sentinel Island

North Sentinel Island is one of the Andaman Islands in the Bay of Bengal. It lies to the west of the southern part of South Andaman Island. Most of the island is forested. It is small, located away from the main settlements on Great Andaman, surrounded by coral reefs, and lacks natural harbours.
This island is considered worl hardest place to visit.
People Small number of indigenous people, the Sentinelese, live on North Sentinel Island. Estimated population is from 50 to 400 individuals. The Sentinelese reject any contact with other people, and are among the last people to remain virtually untouched by modern civilization Part of India but soverign Since 1947, India has administered the island as part of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands Union Territory.[14] However, because there has never been any treaty with the people of the island, nor any record of a physical occupation whereby the people of the island have conceded sovereignty, the island exists in a curious state of limbo under established international law and can be seen as a sovereign entity under Indian protection. It is, therefore, one of the de facto autonomous regions of India.
