Traveling from Shillong to the international trade route border town of Dawki is a splendid drive of 95 kilometers passing through deep gorges and ravines, which is certainly a thrilling experience. On approaching Dawki is the Umngot River, the venue of the annual boat race held during March – April at Umsyiem. The Umngot River is the natural boundary between Ripner or Jaintia Hills with Hima Khyrim of Khasi Hills over which a single span suspension bridge was constructed. This is the gateway to Bangladesh where major export and import transactions take place.
