However, why this island is called Nunertek is still not known exactly. But some locals think that there was once salt in this river, and that’s why many call the island Nunertek. About 40 years ago, another island arose in the village of Nunertek. The island was divided into three parts – Guchchagram, Sabujbagh and Rajuna Char. The vast expanse in front of Guchchagram is today’s Mayadip. One can enjoy the breathtaking natural beauty there.
The view of fishermen fishing in Meghna waters can be enjoyed in this island. Apart from this, the feeling of seeing nature very closely is available in this island. And so many tourists from far and wide flock to this island due to the pull of nature. But the sad thing is, the island exists under water during monsoons. Then only a small part of the island floats in the chest of Meghna. However, in the dry season the island wakes up again, calling back for those lost tourists. In a word, Mayadip is an incredible grassland that wakes up on the chest of Meghna. The island is an ideal place for nature lovers. Because, Mithali nature with greenery has given the island a special shape.
