A man made large lake with beautiful views. Since we were staying in a resort on the lake, the views were magnificent. The water level is less during this time of the year so one may not see the full grandeur of the lake. Some boating activity is there.

Lake is in the middle of mountains, lake water is fresh and can enjoy the boat ride. On Our way to Shillong from Guwahati airport, we have seen this lake. Area of Umium lake is huge.it is 15-20 km away from shilling lake. As we had shortage of time, we have seen the lake from the road side

This is a fresh water lake close to Shillong. I love the scenery and like the surrounding. Lot of water sports activities are there for people to enjoy. We watched a lot of activity happening. Suggest some one who visit Shillong to visit there. Good place for sure.
