Maintained by OK! North East, Cafe Umbir is a quiet destination for nature lovers. Little above from the Umiam Lake (Barapani Lake), towards NEPA, the resort is a place that is frequented for holidays and recreation. 75 Kms from Guwahati and 20 Kms from Shillong, it is situated in almost a noiseless destination mainly designed for people looking for serenity and peace. While the resort provides cottage and rooms, most preferable to travellers are the tents facing the Umiam Lake below. Amidst the pine trees, one can sit next to a bonfire and have some delicious roast or barbeque pork made by Sangma, the chef and the caretaker of the property. One has to understand that this is not a hotel nor a fancy resort where all kinds of people can come and create nuisance. This place is mainly for travellers and not tourists who are looking for tranquillity of rural life.
