A quaint town in the heart of Meghalaya, situated in northeastern India is a place sure to be remembered.

The west of the Jaintia Hills- Dawki, also stands as India’s border with Bangladesh. One can visit here to get lush green hills, crystal clear waters and an ample amount of fresh air to inhale. Apart from nature’s beauty, it’s also blessed mineral wise. It has coal mine as well as limestone stocks, which makes it an international trading point of India with Bangladesh.

"The Indian Town Whose Crystal Clear Water Flows into Bangladesh"

Dawki is a border town between India and Bangladesh, located graciously in the Jaintia Hills of the northeastern state of Meghalaya. It is also known by a few people as Dauki. The greenery of the hills around, the crystal clear water of the Umngot river and the purity of the environment overall will make you fall in love with Dawki.

The Umngot river is the main attraction in Dawki town. The waters of the river are so clear that the boats seem to be floating. It is a sight you have to see to believe.

Dawki can be visited throughout the year. The summer and spring are the best. According to a few locals I spoke to, early to late winters (October- March) is also a good time and is usually less crowded. The Winter months are cold, but not too chilly. I would advise against visiting Dawki during monsoons as heavy rainfall sometimes cause road blockages.
