What Makes It Awesome

Also known as the Scotland Of The East, Shillong is one of the most beautiful hill cities in all of India. When you are visiting this Meghalayan city, you cannot miss out on one of the most popular tourist spots, which is the Umiam Lake.

Located 15km north of Shillong, Lake Umiam is a a reservoir which was created by damming the Umiam River. Lovers of nature are going to enjoy this place even more because of the clean water available here. Spotting the dirty lakes in big cities can be a major eyesore. Here, Umiam comes to the rescue with its serene and clear water.

If you are heading here with your partner, this place can be the most romantic ever, with the clouds almost touching the water and giving us a picturesque view. Umiam Lake being a favourite tourist destination, it is visited by people for water sports and adventure facilities. You can opt for kayaking, water cycling, scooting and boating here.
