Umiam Lake, generally known as ‘Barapani’ in the native language is located amidst the Meghalayan hills and is 15kms to the north of Shillong and is just half an hour drive from Shillong town. Local cabs and taxis are easily available to visit the place.
Barapani is itself a treat to our eyes with its beautiful scenic views. The Umiam Lake adds to this beauty. It is a man-made reservoir or an artificial lake made by constructing a dam on the Umiam River. The Lake is guarded by Gulmohar blossom and pine trees. Boating facilities are available. Tourists are also facilitated with other adventurous options like kayaking, water cycling.
Nehru Park, adjacent to the Umiam Lake, is also a great place especially for kids and people of all ages.
