The small town, besides being a trade hub is also famous for its tourism scene, with many visitors flocking to the town in order to experience a boat ride in its famed Umngot River and enjoy the nearby sights of natural beauty.

One of the most remarkable natural attraction in Meghalaya, Umngot River is a spectacle. With crystal clear water it is perhaps the cleanest river in India. The water of Umngot River is so clear that the boats floating on it, look as if they are on a crystal glass surface. This river offers kayaking, boating and even camping on the river side. The surrounding greenery, the cold water of the river and the beautiful suspension bridge on the River Umngot make Dawki a place worth a visit.
