Chandubi Lake, is a natural lake born at a stroke because of an earthquake.
Located at the foot of the Garo Hills, surrounded by the beauty of Assam and Meghalaya. This serene lake is the perfect getaway for nature lovers, with its calm waters, tea gardens, deep forests, and tiny villages.
Legend has it that a British Officer was so mesmerized by the lake’s sunset that it inspired the lake’s name, Chandubi, which translates to the setting of the sun. Others say that the legendary merchant, Chanda Sadagar, used the lake as a transit point for his business, and the lake became associated with his name.
Regardless of its origin story, one thing is for sure, Chandubi Lake is a must-visit spot for natural sightseeing. And if you’re lucky enough to visit between October and April, you’ll get to experience the lake in its peak glory. Plus, if you’re a bird watcher, winter is the perfect time to spot different species of birds, including migratory birds that add to the lake’s beauty.
But the fun doesn’t stop there. The Chandubi Festival takes place in the first week of January, where local villagers come together to perform traditional dance forms and celebrate their unique culture. And let’s not forget about the fishing, rowing, and beautiful cottages at the Chandubi Eco-camp.
