Umiam LakeIt is first thing that comes to our way to shillong. From the road you can see the beautiful lake down the valley, but it is not the justice that we did to the mesmerising place. It deserves going down to the lake and feel the beauty of the shore. But we were timebound and therefore moved ahead ignoring the voice of our heart.
Umaim Lake:We had checked all the places listed in our itinerary online this is a huge reservoir which has turned out to be a huge tourist attraction in the state, locally known as Bara pani is a paradise for any photography enthusiast. The lake has a view point and a point from where boating is done, there are speed boats, water scooter, etc for an additional fee which can be booked there directly. The lake is surrounded on three sides by beautiful lush green hills.
you can't miss amazingly beautiful Umiam Lake while driving down from Guwahati to Shillong. You can enjoy water sports there if time permits.
