I have a holiday planned to Shillong with a few friends, the holiday was not really thought about properly before we booked the tickets and now we are researching about the places to see in Shillong and things to do. The first tourist spot I want to find out about is Barapani Lake in Meghalaya. 1. How far is Barapani lake from Shillong city? 2. Is Barapani Lake also known as Umiam Lake? 3. How big is the lake? 4. Can we do boating in the lake, or is it something just to see? Thanks.
