Early morning it was raining as monsoon started for North east already....by 7 AM weather cleared so we got ready for DAWKI visit ....now it was 85 KM's up and 85 KM's down way till DAWKI....the beautiful scenery while one rides on bike through meadows.... mountains covered in clouds and steep gorges ....scary but beautiful.
We visited first ELEPHANT FALLS as it was 25 minutes ride and on the way to DAWKI ....it is common tourist attraction point one can find water cascading in numerous falls with a panoramic view n with the onset of monsoon the waterfall was that mesmerizing.
Our badluck was it rained that day....we halted midway to have lunch before we reached DAWKI...It is at INDO - BANGLADESH border....one can see BSF on the bridge once you near to DAWKI RIVER...the water was muddy as it rained....I was sad as I went to capture the bluish green color of DAWKI .....So the trade off here is DAWKI appears bluish green in winter and before JUNE ...keep that in mind!!! No rains should be there...my partner decided that we must VISIT SHNONPDENG instead which is 8 - 10 KM's up from DAWKI to have good clarity of DAWKI source...it is known as UMNGNOT RIVER as well.One can find boating options there also...refer images.
By the time we returned we were half drenched in rains and tired....it was almost 10 PM .The disadvantages of scooty is you are not safe from rains and depends if you are a good rider in rainy season or not....with those roads I will say a big "no" to people to have 2 wheeler in rainy season better hire a tourist cab...a bit costly but safe at least.
