Jowai Overview

Jowai is located in the district of Jaintia Hills in the state of Meghalaya. The town of Jowai, which is a popular tourist destination, is also known by the name of Jwai. Jowai consists of many tribes and settlements that depict the cultural heritage of the town.

The festival of Behdeimkhlam is a popular festival, when locals prepare delicacies that mainly include meat, fish and pork like Jadoh, Doh Khleh, Doh Jem during this time. Jowai is the commercial and educational hub of the region as several students from neighbouring towns come here to study.

One of the popular attractions in Jowai is Syntu Ksiar, which is located along the region of the Myntdu River. The destination once used to be one of the most important places for India’s freedom struggle and it was Kiang Nangbah, who led the struggle in the region of Jowai. Jowai has a monument dedicated to the memory of the freedom fighter Kiang Nangbah. Other popular attractions in Jowai include the Thadlaskein Lake and Lalong Park.

Jowai is one of the wettest regions. Jowai experiences a short summer, comparatively long monsoon and extremely cold winters. Summers in Jowai are very mild with a maximum temperature of 25⁰ Celsius whereas the monsoon starts in the month of May and extends till October, which makes travelling to this region very hard. Winters in Jowai are extremely cold with a minimum temperature of 4⁰ Celsius and even less.

Meghalaya is a remote area and Jowai is located in the eastern most part, which makes reaching the destination a bit difficult. Travelling options here are limited to buses and other road transport that can connect a traveller to the nearest airport that is in Guwahati, which is about 104 kilometres from Jowai and from here, flights or helicopters, can be taken. Jowai has good bus connectivity with all the nearby towns such as Shillong, Tripura, Assam and Mizoram.
