Dawki lake is considered to be the cleanest water body. To reach the place, leave early from Shillong so that you could avoid getting stuck in the traffic. It would take around 2-3 hours to reach Dawki from Shillong. Enjoy the boat ride here, soak in the beauty of the place. We would highly recommend spending your day here and Shnongpdeng, which is near to Dawki lake. You could pay a visit to Bangladesh border only if you want to see the border area.

Dawki has fastly gained popularity as an offbeat tourist destination . The beautiful Dawki lake is infact Umngot river that flows from Bangladesh side.

I have recently visited this place on Nov 11 (2017) and discovered that road conditions are still not that good especially 10 km stretch that leads to Dawki. Also , there are no nicer option for stay near the place and one has to make his stay at Mawlynnong village 1 hour from Dawki river.
