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.
