It's a huge and beautiful lake. Can visit on the way from Guwahati to Shillong if time permits as it closes by 5 pm. We could not do it on the way so had to come back from Shillong next day and took almost an hour due to traffic. Only one type of boating was available which can accommodate 10. They expect you to gather 10 people and buy the ticket which is bad, instead they could have given individual tickets and start the ride after 10 people are available. But boating was a good experience.

The lake is huge and has multiple angles and views to take pictures or just to enjoy its beauty. The scenery surrounding this lake is also picturesque.

This lake is situated on the way from Guhawati to Shillong. The approach road entails entry fee and parking fees. But very serene feeling

Its a beautiful lake seen both from close and from the bridge on the way in & out of Shillong. We reached very early morning hence cud not take the boat ride. The lawns are good to stroll around. Do visit if you have time

Mesmerising view of nature may be seen here at Umiam lake. Experience of 5 minutes motor boat trip is amazing. We can See the Magic of nature here. Don't See it from upper road local persons call it borapani so come here and don't miss the motor boat ride.
