Umanghat is the hidden gem of Meghalaya tourism. The river flows through the Dawaki along the India – Bangladesh border. Dawaki is a small town in the West Jaintia hill of Shillong, Meghalaya. It is approximately 95 k.m from Shillong town.
The water is absolutely transparent with deep blue-green color. You can see the stones in the river bed. The emerald color and clear water helps you to see the bottom of the water due to the clarity of the water.
