Dawki is a small town in Jaintia Hills nestled around clear and beautiful Umgnot River, a must visit destination for nature lovers and travelers. The drive from Shillong to Dawki is a thrilling experience passing through deep gorges and ravines. The cool, moist air brushes over your face will refresh and revitalizes you on your way to Dawki.
The crystal clear Umngot River of Dawki is a major attraction that marks the natural separation between the Khasi and the Jaintia Hills. Dawki sets the ideal tourist spot for camping and adventure water sports. The river in Dawki is the site for a boat race that is held in March-April, but even otherwise, sightseeing at 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.
