Locals call it Latsam, the British called her Shiloh but now it is officially known as Shilloi. Shilloi Lake lies on the lower slopes of the hill ranges running along the Myanmmar ridges, Meluri. Located 275 km away from Kohima, one has to travel east through roads lined with oak tree in fresh foliage. The serpentine road spiraling downwards guarded by Rocky Mountains presents a mysterious and majestic sight. Surrounded by tall, striking and attractive hills, Shilloi Lake spreads over 0.25 to 0.30 sq. km., in the shape of a footprint.
