This is the largest freshwater lake in India and also one of the largest in the world. The only floating National Park, the Keibul Lam Jao National Park floats on this lake. Another important feature of this lake are the Phumdis which float on the lake in a large number. These look like islands but are not as they are thick depositions of organic waste and mud particles which have formed patches of vegetation known as phumdis. You will also see huts floating on these phumdis and sometimes blown away by the winds. The Lokatk Lake is about 50 km away from Imphal, the state capital and is an important tourist attraction.
