Ten Degree Channel

The Ten Degree Channel is a channel that separates the South Andaman and Car Nicobar in the Bay of Bengal. The two sets of islands together form the Indian Union Territory (UT) of Andaman and Nicobar Islands.

It is said that when Western Trade wind was used by Arabians they crossed through this channel in fifteenth Century.

The Channel is approximately 10 km wide, running essentially along an east-west orientation. It is so named as it lies on the 10-degree line of latitude, north of the equator.
