The small town of Taki, on the banks of river Ichamati, provides an experience like no other. Apart from being a favourite picnic spot, a boat ride on the river will give you a chance to get a closer view of Bangladesh. In fact, tourists of both India and Bangladesh embark on this journey, thus giving you a chance to meet Bangladeshi citizens. Apart from this amazing boat ride, you can also visit local attractions like ruins of Zamindar houses, Ramakrishna Mission, Kuleshwari Kali Temple, a three century old Jora Sahib Mandir and General Shankar Roy Chowdhury’s Adi Bari. A boat ride will take you to Henry’s island, and a rickshaw ride from Henry’s island will take you to Golpatar Jungle for the canopy walk. Taki is located at about 80 km from Kolkata by road. If travelling by train, you can take Hasnabad local from Sealdah to reach Taki Road Station.
