“Best attraction in Shillong”
Reviewed 7 March 2012

On way from the town to the lake there are various points on the highway from where you can get amazing views of the lake and you can go boating for hours on the lake. It is a must see on ur Shillong visit and it is a nice location for nature lovers and photographers.

“enchanting serenity for a perfect getaway”
Reviewed 22 December 2011

The lake is so clear and cool....absolute serenity for a perfect getaway!...we found it far better than Cherrapunjee or even Shillong...though nothing much to do out there expect feasting eyes with the clear blue water....with greenery all around and a few resorts in vicinity this is a place worth staying for a day or two
