Where you’ll be

Umiam, Meghalaya, India

You have to reach at the Umiam Watersports Complex, next to the Orchid Lake Resort. There is a gated parking area, where you can park your vehicle overnight, by paying a nominal charge.
The motorboats at the jetty operate till 5 pm. You have to hire a boat to reach the island. They have a fixed price displayed at the notice board. Operation timings may change based on the weather conditions. Thus it's a good idea to reach earlier and spend the afternoon in the island.
If you wish to experience a country boat ride, we can arrange the same. The tariffs are usually the same as motorboats.
However, the country boats operate only in normal weather conditions.
