U Lum Sunaraja, located in the Jaintia Hills district falls near the Umkiang village which is takes about 3 hrs 12mins to reach from Shillong by road. The U Lum Sunaraja hillocks are abounded with greenery with patches of vegetation and also a lake meandering its way, cutting through the green lands.
The locals in these areas believe that the elephants choose this deep lake as their final resting place as the aged mammals come and plunge themselves in it and embrace their death. It is also believed by the people that an enormous serpent guards the precious ivory.
With its tranquil waters and clean air and far away from the city noise, U Lum Sunaraja is the ideal place to spend some time at for weary travelers who are in search for some calm and solace.
Best way of transport would be to book a tourist cab from Shillong.
