The visit to this lovely destination was on our 11th day of our vacation. We weren't expecting the views, which we had seen on the web, considering them to edited pictures. But then, the first look at this place from the top was breath taking....More

The water looks clear green and tranparent. It’s Bangladesh on the other side of the river! There are fishermen from both countries at the bottom. It doesn’t look like a border. You can see Bangaldeshi tourists on the other side

Its a clean and serene river. Get to do some boating here. The Bangladesh border ( nothing like an actual border, just ropes separating the two ) is visible. When it doesn't rain, the water looks crystal clear.

Dawki is one of the famous place to visit when you are in Meghalaya. It is near Bangladesh board. Famous for boating in Umngot river. Water is very clean.

We had visited in Nov 2017 and were spell bound by the crystal clear waters and the famed "flying boats" of Dawki where the water was so clean and clear that the boats appeared to be flying in air. Our visit yesterday just a year...More

The place has a great view from above with India and Bangladesh border in between the water bodies. The water was clear to an extent but was not how it was hiked to be. We were very upset with the first view of the place...More

Far away from Shillong, this is an one day sightseeing point clubbed with Mawlynong. Road towards dawki village is not comfortable at all. This is mainly the Indo Bangladesh border point Tamadil. The water in the Umngot river is crystal clear(not in rainy season). You...More
