Chandubi Lake (Pron: ˌʧʌnˈdʊbɪ) is a natural lake located in Rabha Hasong Autonomous Council, Kamrup District, Assam at a distance of 64 kilometers from the city of Guwahati accessible through National Highway 37.[1] The lake is located at the foot of Garo hills surrounded by Assam and Meghalaya. The area is covered by deep forest, and small villages. It is a natural sightseeing and picnic spot.[citation needed] This lake attracts migratory birds during winter.

Geology[edit]

This lake was formed during the 1897 Assam earthquake. During that period the forest went down and became the lake.[2]

Tourism[edit]

The lake's chief feature is the natural lagoon that has been formed in the lake. The lake offers fishing, and the administrators of the lake have provided facilities to go rowing in the lake waters.[citation needed] Chandubi Lake is a tourist destination, with some tourists visiting the lake during the Changdubi festival in first week of January.[citation needed] In this festival, local village people perform their traditional or cultural dance forms, and stalls offer local traditional food.[3]
