We first completed our immigration at the Tamabil border in Sylhet and walked for 15 minutes to the Dauki Bridge. This bridge can be seen from Jaflong to Meghalaya. After spending some time there, I came to Dauki Bazaar, rented a taxi, and went to Sonangpedang. Sonangpedang’s Suspension Bridge, I walk around the river and go boating on the Umgat river, if you go here, everyone must do boating.


Camping in tents at night, camp-firing which was a great experience. The next day too I enjoy the natural beauty of Sonangpedang very relaxed. Then 8 km from Sonangpedang to the border, we intentionally go on foot to enjoy the beauty and cross the border.
