The River Umngot carves the valley that splits the Khasi and Jaintia Hills and flows into the plains of Bangladesh. It is a river known for myths and meanders through stirring landscapes that have lately become a hotspot for adventure seekers.
The three main destinations on the River Umngot include the border town of Dawki, known for its iconic bridge and intimate views of the neighbouring country and the two resort villages of Darrang and Shnongpdeng.
Activities include camping, ziplining, angling and kayaking. Water adventures here include snorkelling and scuba-diving while visitors can also enjoy a serene traditional canoe ride on the magically clear waters of the river. The Umngot experience includes exploring the surrounding forest trails including a guided trek to the village of Kudengrim, known for its living root bridges and waterfalls.
