  • Umiam Lake ( commonly known as barapani lake ) is a reservoir located in the hills 15 km to the North of Shillong in the state of Meghalaya, India. It was created by damming the Umiam river in the early 1960s. The principal catchment area of the lake and dam is spread over 220 square km. The natural beauty of this lake is awesome. If you visit in monsoon then you will definitely feel something different.
  • The scenery is just awesome... Away from the city noise, it's a place of peace and serenity... The gentle breeze coming from the widely spread water of the lake makes your body and mind calm...
  • Hub of nature...one side is contained by water and other side is covered by mountain...yu can feel the very fresh air on the bank of the lake.... it's just unique..
  • Best place to chill and spend some meaningful time with family and friends. I saw locals and nearby places people visited this lake with family /friends and cook the food there with the utensils they bought. Kids and adults will love this place as there was boat rides and jet ski. One should not miss the sunset here.
  • A great place to spend some quality time. They do have a boat service. Howver when i visited in the month of Feb 2018 they insisted that they need at least 12 ppl. they do not sell two or three tickets. We had to request another group to accommodate us with them . Place is serene .
