“nice place for a stroll”
Review of Umiam Lake

Ranked #4 of 61 things to do in Shillong

Reviewed December 27, 2012

Nice, quiet place. Only sound is made by the speed boat rides which you can take. You can sit around, read a book, enjoy the nature or have a picnic. The speed boat is expensive for a 5 min boat ride.

Really huge lake in very serene location near Shillong. There is an excellent spot on the way from where you can get a panoramic view. Also when you come down to the shore, you can spend an hour or two just relaxing

its is a huge man made lake and thus has its attraction but there isnt anything offbeat. They do have water sports during some seasons.

Strange to imagine that a lake as big as river flow in the outskirts of the city. but not much to look around. Just a lake, nothing in it, no hotels nearby. Looked beautiful when taxi moved by the side. I shot pics, that was it. I am thankful to the driver, because he stopped, and I took pictures.
