This is not in the Maldives, Mauritius, or any other western country; it is in the northeastern region of our own motherland, India. The Umngot River in Meghalaya, also known as the Dawki River, is without a doubt the cleanest river in Asia due to its crystal clear water.
The river is located in the Meghalaya near the village of Mawlynnong, which is known as “Asia’s Cleanest Village,” and is not far from the border between India and Bangladesh.
This location won’t let you down if you’re looking for paradise on earth. The captivating Meghalaya is certainly a nature lover’s heaven with its lush green meadows, crystal-clear rivers, pine-covered hills, stunning waterfalls, lakes, and towering woods. The state is not only a paradise for stunning natural scenery, but it is also the birthplace of the Khasi, Garo, and Jaintia tribes, which have a rich cultural and traditional legacy. While every part of the state is lovely, there are a few extraordinary locations that are unlike anything you have ever seen! One such settlement is Dawki, which is tucked away at the base of the Jaintia hills and is most well-known for its stunningly clear river Wah Umngot waters.
Before finally flowing into Bangladesh, the Umngot River serves as a natural divider between the Jaintia and Khasi hills. Visitors mention that the water is so clean that the boats seem to float over it. The Dawki River’s water is absurdly pure. While on a boat excursion, one can see the river bed with its vibrant pebbles and stones. At this spot, nature seems to be at its finest.
One of the cleanest rivers in the world, according to the Ministry of Jal Shakti, is this river. It’s in India. River Umngot in the state of Meghalaya, 100 kilometres from Shillong. The water is so clear and sparkling that it appears as though the boat is in the air. Would that all of our rivers were that pure. Hats off to the Meghalayan people, tweeted the Ministry of Jal Shakti.
This stunning river is the hidden gem of Meghalaya, a crown on the forehead of India, which borders Bangladesh.
