Good view and serenity
Lake is at a lower level than the road and hill around
Can give it a miss if one has other lake opportunities

Lovely lake - a must visit if in Shilong area
Jan 2021 • Friends
This is beautiful lake with various boat rides available. We took a private motor boat for 20 minutes that cost Rs 4000 (Rs 1000 per 5 minutes) which was quite fun for the 4 of us. "Go for it" would be my advice ❤❤

Reservoir of Shillong
Mar 2020
This lake is one of the greatest attraction of Meghalaya..it comes on the way to Shillong from Guwahati...
Spread over a large area amidst hills of different sizes in a very calm and quiet condition...
This is the main water resource of the area and is also known as Barapani...boating on the lake is also a fantastic experience...
One Govt. hotel and a private hotel is there...and watching this lake in a moonlit night is simply excellent...
This tourist spot is few 12 kms away from Shillong...hence, its better to include this place in the Shillong trip...
Amazing spot for profile shoots, wedding shoots, pre-wed shot or even baby bump shoots...u will see many professional shoots going on at this place...
U might come across shoots for travel channels as well...
Washroom is very clean and hygienic...

“A Mesmerizing Man Made Lake “
Oct 2019
Umiam Lake, a mesmerizing man-made reservoir, located at a distance of 15 kilometres north of Shillong . One of the most iconic sites in the entire Meghalaya, Umiam Lake is a perfect spot for leisure and rejuvenation. The reservoir / lake was formed after a dam was constructed to generate hydroelectric power in the 1960s and has been a treat to visitors’ senses ever since.

In addition to the lake being a popular picnic spot among locals and tourists visiting Shillong, the scenic beauty of the vast lake with azure waters is truly enchanting and makes it an ideal spot for landscape photographers. The sunrise at the lake is a treat to watch and shouldn't be missed.
Umiam Lake is one of the best tourist places in Shillong for adventure…. you can even indulge in thrilling water activities like kayaking, boating, and cruising here

Lake famous as " BADA PANI " with locals.

A pristine huge lake on the way to Shillong
Oct 2019
While traveling from Guwahati to Shillong, we came across Umiam Lake. This is a man-made lake also called as Barapani (big water) due to its huge size and it resembles with lakes of Scotland. I could spend eternity listening to the sound of water and watching those boats has always been my childhood dream. it is a pristine lake and you must make a stop here. if you have time, you can also plan on staying on the riverside resorts - orchid lake resort is among the best of them.
