Winter brings with it a mesmerising beauty but also a chilling cold. While deciding which place to visit in these cold temperatures, we have brought you one such location which you can visit without freezing yourself to death. Dawki, in Shilong, has a pleasant temperature ranging from 12 to 20 degrees and is the only hill station in the country which is accessible from all sides.
The water of Umngot River in Dawki is so clear that one could be tricked into thinking that the boat is floating in midair. Shillong definitely needs to be added to the list of places to visit in December!
One can relish the sweet and juicy oranges at the border down the river and also the place has interesting and amazing festivals to be enjoyed. Festivals like Tysim festival, Baghmara, Pinjera Festival, Williamnagar festival and Tura winter festival in Tura are some of them.
The famous Dawki Bridge was built by Britishers in the year 1932 and is the most popular among tourists.
Here’s a video of the river:
