Keibul Lamjao National Park

Known as the only floating National Park in the whole world, this is located in the Bishnupur District of Manipur. The park was set up in the year 1975 and the main aim was to protect the Sangai Deer which has since then increased by a huge percentage. Being in a tropical zone, trees are pretty basic here like anywhere else and you can also find grasslands here. The other animals here include wild goat, leopard cat, hog deer and fishing cat. This is a major tourist attraction of Manipur and is well connected with Koirang which is the nearest town. Dimapur is the main railway station which has good communication facilities with other parts of the country.

I planned to explore major tourist attractions on day-2, so I started my day very early. Woke up at ~5am and reached the bus station at Ima Market by ~6am. The plan was to go to Keibul Lamjao National Park first. Rather than waiting for buses, take shared autos or minivans. I luckily got a minivan that was about to hit the road. It dropped me off at Moirang and I took a shared auto to reach the park. It took me ~1.5hrs in total to reach the destination including all the waiting time.The park opens at ~8:30am. As I was a little early, I had to wait outside. I bought the ticket but the staff to take tourists inside was a little late. In the meanwhile, a family of 3 came in their car and started waiting as well.You are allowed to take your vehicle inside the park. It is a long walk, so walk down only if you have a lot of time to spare. I got the lift from that family and enjoyed the free ride. The park is vast but there is not much to explore other than the expanse and a short boat ride. You may get to see a few animals. We couldn't get a clear view but the boat ride was great.
