The river is extremely scenic. Very clean water and it flows thru lush green mountains.

Boating in the river is an excellent experience. Quite a romantic one too. One has to go down the stairs to the boats and then have about an hour of boating experience. One gets to halt in between at a beautiful spot where you wait and let the experience sink in your brains.

Clean water by your sides and mountains full of lush green trees. It's a kind of heavenly experience.

Highly recommended.

Due to rains many told us to skip Dawki but our guide Wesh insisted we see it once. It was raining for couple of weeks hence Umngot river levels increased. With increased level of water, the bottom becomes floggy. One specific bridge that needs to be crossed to reach this river was packed with trucks. We took around 45 mins to reach from bridge to the river. We were amazed at the patience of the police force who patiently coordinated with each vehicle at a time to cross the bridge. Once we reached the river beach we were a little disappointed to see many sellers from Bangladesh who easily slide to this side of the border selling u their wares like Photography and food. For the boat part the process has been streamlined significantly unlike yesteryears boater riders quoted from Rs800 to 2500. Now for a boat ride with 3-4 ppl costs Rs.800 only. No haggling required.
Now to the river part, once u get on the boat, u wll start seeing the miracle of clear water. Though the water levels had risen there were many patches were you could see the clear bottom ! The boat ride was a stress buster! he took us to the other side of the river and let us get into the water. Now this is the part where we could see the bottom so so clearly ! We were happy to even see this slight bottom, if not the whole river! Its a total of 45 mins ride and totally worth it!
Dont let anybody discourage you with traffic and cannot see bottom stories - just go and u wont regret.

Crystal clear waters of the Umngot river will certainly steal your heart. A lazy boat ride on this river is the icing on the cake!

Went to this place with a lot of excitement but were disappointed because of the dirty water, crowds, small boats and bad approach roads. Decided not to take the boats and returned back after taking a few photographs.

The drive from Cherrapunji to dawki river is the most scenic drive. To take the boat ride in the river you need to take a lot of steps but it’s worth it. It’s the most cleanest river. You can see the bottom of the river. Must must visit

Its a must visit place in Meghalaya. Very close to Bangladesh border. River water is really clean and transparent. Boat ride is a must. Don't hire boats from road side stalls. At the entry there is fixed rate vendor and you wont have to climb difficult stairs to avail the boat. Try to reach morning time or after 3pm.It was very hot in end of October too.

A picturesque river with clean blue water where one can see the river bottom. A boat ride on this river is an experience to enjoy with family, friends and kids with the Bangladesh border so close. I just hope over tourism does not take away the charm of the place.

Very clean water(you can see the bed most of the time) with lot of rounded stones. The kayak boats are not well maintained (water leakage inside is common) but the boatman takes care of the site seeing very well. Very memorable trip for children and adults alike. Low water flow in this time of the year but sufficient for enjoyment.

After watching many pictures on social networking sites, I had very high expectations and real Dawki looked even better. I would not forget the crystal clear water which I saw below my boat. Disappointed that somehow we didn't get sufficient time to spend there. We took bath in Dawki water, the stones were quite slippery though. The 45 minutes boating with mild music was an experience to remember for life. I would visit Dawki once again and would spend a full day next time.
