Dawki

West Jaintia Hills, Indo-Bangla-border

Your visit to Meghalaya is imperfect if you fail to open and gentle breeze in Dawki. Really. The small but beautiful town in the north eastern state bordering Bangladesh is a safe route of Indo-Bangla trans-border trade. Come to Shillong reach the border town covering a 95 km journey of beautiful road and green valley of East Jaintia Hills district. The journey gives you really an occasion to take fresh breath of enchanting beauty. The  gurgling rivers and rivulets are an extra pleasure in the ideal tourists spot. “Wonderful indeed”, is an exact word that would slip from your mouth as soon as you see the enchanting beauty of the river Umngot along the Indo-Bangladesh border. Your visit would fetch more joy if you visit the spot in March-April where the crowd puller boat race takes place. The river is always a fishing spot for the villagers who have been managing their livelihood in season and out of season.

Have you ever heard of natural boundary? Come to Dwaki and have a look how the river Umngot acts as a natural between RiPnar of Jaintia Hills and HimaKhyrim of Khasi Hills on the historic Dawki bridge. So don’t try to resist the temptation.
