Concrete roads connect the island with the Mainland but during the Monsoons, the overflowing waters of the river, flood these connectors. During this time ,fishing boats remain the only means of communication. I love boat rides. It is a welcome break from the everyday mundane drives among traffic jams. When the boat sways with the river currents while the Oars of the boatmen splash in the water, it gives an ultimate feeling of freedom. If you ask for my opinion, I would suggest you to take a boat to cross the river even if there are other ways available to reach the island. The Monsoon season is the best time to visit Madkudweep. The rain washes away the brown dirt and the vegetation wears a bright green colour. While crossing the river on a fishing boat you can enjoy the views of green islands emerging here and there from beneath the brown waters of the Shivnath.
