It’s a life time experience. A neat Bungalow pattern resort beside the Lake Umium/Bara Pani. The unforgettable picturesque, serene nature will beacon you. The wooden and lavish dining room overlooking the lake will always remain in your memory. You may indulge in water sports or may be hitch-hiking the friendly villages. Though it a bit costly for budget travelers but the money will worth it.

The lake is very scenic, with good points for watersports. The cafeteria is also located ideally. Nice place to unwind. Doesn't have anything except watersports. Boating not available throught the year.

This beautiful lake is the best place to stopover in Meghalaya . The private Ri Kynjai Hotel is very appealing and has a wonderful location . The Govt owned Orchid Resort has had a very bad press but is in the process of refurbishment and maybe worth a look in after a few months . The water '' sports '' from the jetty near the Orchid Resorts consists of mainly a Speed Boat and a Slow Motor Boat - both moderately priced . It was around Rs 300 for the Speed Boat [ for 3 persons ] and Rs 75 per head for the Motor Boat . The motor boat requires 10 pax to run . This is a highlight of any trip to Shillong - Cherrapunji and a nights stay is highly recommended as the real magic is in the morning and evening .
