Well maintained lake. A great place to go for a walk or a wedding photo shoot. It's beautiful. A great place to relax in Shillong. It's a good place for kids to play and learn about different trees and plants.

My wife and I and some friends (British, American, Belgian and Dutch) walked around here and met many groups of very friendly, relaxed people who were happy to converse. A very peaceful place in the middle of a very highly trafficked city, a nice refuge for some quiet reflection

It's a beautiful lake in the city of Shillong. Generally opens at 8 a.a. for the visitors but the locals can walk in early morning for morning walk. It's worth visiting this lake.

The entry fees are very affordable for this huge lake view. The scenic view of this lake is mesmerising. The place is also very peaceful and you can just sit there and enjoy yourself.

Yet another beautiful lake of Meghalaya. Quite picturesque. We reached there quite late; I wish we were there at least an hour earlier.

Boating here is quire a pleasing and serene experience. YOU will get to experience not only the trees around but also the swans and various ducks freely swimming in the lake, One shouldn't also miss the walk by the side of the lake.,

One can easliy spend a couple of hours in this highly romantic and serene place.

Calm and serene. Made for a wonderful morning. Ambience is great. Boating options available. Plastic bottles have to be deposited outside as this is a plastic free zone !

Surprisingly a 50% concession in the entrance fees is given to senior citizens if they carry appropriate proof of age.

This lake built in the late 19th century is a must visit for anyone visiting Shillong. Situated right in the middle of the city, it has a certain charm to it which is difficult to miss with the lake, the flora and fauna around it and the wonderfully constructed bridge in the middle. The highlight was a flock of ducks and swans swimming in the lake coming up ashore from time to time. My son especially enjoyed the sight of them. All in all a great place to visit.
