I was planning a visit to Meghalaya with my partner and the “Umiam Lake Boathouse” seemed really romantic to me and I booked it. Just as I could imagine it to be, this tour turned out to be so amazing for both of us. The stay at the boathouse was really special. It had a private bathroom and a furnished kitchen where we could cook our dinner and feel totally at home. We also enjoyed fishing, bird watching, and boating and everything was truly worth the moment that any couple will wish for. We also enjoyed romantic nature walks, clicked a lot of pictures, and had the special Assam tea. The caretaker at our stay was really generous and was ever ready for assistance. Our package also included good breakfast and we were saved from going out every morning in search of food. Overall, it was a really amazing experience and I’ll definitely book with Thrillophilia for my next trip as well!

I had booked a Thrillophilia package for Umiam Lake boathouse stay for my parents’ anniversary. Since I was not accompanying them, I was a bit nervous, but thankfully this package made everything so sorted and easy. The caretaker at the boathouse was such a nice person, I could literally call him and confirm if my parents were alright and he would be explaining to me how my parents were so happy enjoying the views and boating. Thanks to Thrillophilia, it was a perfect anniversary for my parents!
