ITINERARY

DAY 1

SHILLONG

DAY 2

DAWKI-MAWLYNNONG

Today we head to see the Umngot river at Dawki. Bordering Bangladesh, this river is ideal to swim (only if you know very well how to), chill by or even simply take a boat ride across. Post chilling here for a while we head to Mawlynnong. Now Mawlynnong is Asia's cleanest village and once you are there, you will easily know why. After our day out, we return to our humble abode in Shillong.
