Orange Market, Dawki Dawki is located on the Indo-Bangla Frontier at the end of the Guwahati-Shillong-Dawki Road, i.e. N.H-40. As one crosses the international frontiers at Dawki, one-steps on to Tamabil to converge onto the Tamabil-Sylhet-Dhaka Highway of Bangladesh. Very close to the Dawki customs check post flows the Dawki River with Jaintia Hills District on one side and East Khasi Hills District on the other.

An eye-catching motorable suspension bridge spans the Dawki River to complete the missing link of NH-40. The bridge, an engineering feat was constructed by the British before India became independent, as the overland life-line between the provinces of East Bengal and Assam . The bridge, though old, is an impeccable standard of maintenance, adding to the general beauty of the picturesque border town of Dawki, known for its sweet, juicy orange market.
