Experience Shillong

If you’ve already gone through the itinerary for your Shillong tour, great! Make sure you don’t miss out on any of the following attractions:

1. Umiam Lake

There is a reason behind Shillong being called the ‘Scotland of the East’. It is because of the beautiful Umiam Lake and Barapani on the city’s outskirts. Said to have a resemblance to the Loch Lake of Scotland, the Umiam Lake is perfect for trying out some water sports. Umiam Lake’s blue waters with the striking backdrop of the hills are something that you shouldn’t miss out on while you plan your Shillong tour. Discover the waters of the lake on a Kayak or try water scooters or motorboats for an added thrill. You can also go on a picnic in the Lum Nehru Park on the banks of the lake.

2. Ward’s Lake

Reminding you of the colonial-era Shillong, this striking lake has an attractive bridge with flower beds and neatly-maintained lawns. The lake has boating facilities and is a favorite spot for couples. While you sit by the lake and take in the calm environs, you can spot geese here.

3. Shillong Golf course

Overlooking an appealing clubhouse with pine trees on the borders, the Shillong Golf Course is ideal for a quick stroll and is something that you must include in your Shillong trip plan. The meadows of the Golf Course make for a peaceful respite.
