Dawaki is one of the stunning destination of Meghalya situated near Bangladesh border. You can even see the Bangladesh border just at the other bank of the river. I don't know is it a river or a lake. The river named umangot is made this water body just after reaching the plan. it is really a hidden paradise. The main attraction of this place is the lake's crystal and clear water. In a sunny day u can also see the boulders underground of water. Its my strong suggestion if u go to dawki never miss the boat ride. The local people run it and provide the service in very reasonable price. But surely u should bargain always. The average boating time near about a hour and its worthy.
The road heading to Dawki is not too good if u coming through dawki via mawlynnong (its the cleanest village of the Asia) will take around 4 hours. If u will go there in rainy season it may take more time but u will see a lot of natural waterfalls on the way. There is an alternate route of Dawaki but not through the mawlynnong take less time to come directly from shillong. Shilling to Dawki bus service is also available. I did not see any accommodation nearby but after dwaki about 3 to 4 km there is a small town where u can get the food and home stay. Don't expect much of Variety and quality.
If u going to dawki its always good to go at morning if u a peace lover. In morning the place is less crowded and u get the boat also in lesser price. If u going from shilong its better to go dawki first then to mawlynnong. Many people also stay the night at mawlynnong and then go to dawki in next morning. And we took the second option.
