Katchall island Nicobar

Characteristics

Description

Katchall Island is separated from Camorta Island and Nancowry Island to the NE by Revello Channel, which is about 3.8 miles wide and apparently free from dangers, except for a detached 12.8m patch which lies about 4.5 miles NE of the SE end of Katchall Island.

The island is densely wooded and rises to a height of 227m in its central part.

Katchall Island has been reported to be a good radar target up to 18 miles.
Depths off the W side of the island are very irregular. Some 16.5 to 18.3m patches lie up to 4 miles off this coast.

On 26 December 2004, several islands were heavely damaged by the Tsunami.
