Why travel Dawki?

Travelling from Shillong to the International trade route border town of Dawki is a splendid drive of 85 kilometres passing through deep gorges and ravines, which is certainly a thrilling experience. The cool, wet air brushes over your face and refreshes and revitalizes you as it enters your body on your way to the village.

It is a small village and its main attraction is the Umngot River that marks the natural separation between the Khasi and the Jaintia Hills. The river can be forded by a suspension bridge that connects India to Bangladesh and facilitates trade between the two nations. The Umngot is the site for a boat race that is held in March-April, but even otherwise, seeing this large emerald-green serpent threading its way through the hills, with fishermen’s boats dotting its surface, right into the plains of Bangladesh, is a sight whose majesty echoes long after you leave it.
