Machranga Deep

Machranga Deep is a small island situated in the middle of the Ichamati river near Taki in North 24 Parganas of West Bengal. It used to be an excellent picnic spot during the winter season. But nowadays, due to excessive mud and lack of proper infrastructure one can get on this island only during the high tide. Hence the picnic spot has been closed. However you can take a motor boat ride from Taki to go near the island.

You can visit the island by motor boat from Taki.
Motor Boat Charges - Rs. 30/- per head, Rs. 600-800/- for full boat.

I heard that they do not allow people to go on Machranga Dwip nowadays as the river is dangerous. How long ago did you go to Machranga Dwip ?
