Loktak Lake, Manipur

Been there recently?

Ever visited a lake whose surface area keeps varying? A lake with large masses of vegetation floating all over it? A lake that is high on the tourist list because of its unique nature and ecological importance? A lake declared a site of international importance? A lake that is the largest freshwater lake in the country and South Asia? Loktak Lake at Moirang Village is the place you need to head to. The uniform circular shapes that the floating masses of vegetation take leaves the visitors mesmerised. A boat ride through these masses, which look like islands, sailing right through them, is an experience to remember. Some of these floating islands have huts with people living in them! The lake attracts many birds, supports a variety of flora and a large number of faunas from nearby reserved forests depend on it. Make sure if you ever visit the northeast of India, this lake is in your must visit list. The surface area of the lake keeps varying from 250 square kilometres to 480 square kilometres. Moirang village is about 17 kilometres from Bishnupur, the district headquarters, and approximately 45 kilometres from Imphal. The nearest rail head is at Dimapur in Nagaland about 245 kilometres away and Imphal is the nearest airport.
