Loktak Lake

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.
The Keibul Lamjao National Park is the only floating wildlife refuge in the world, floating on the waters of Loktak Lake in Manipur. The park is a wetland ecosystem and is well-known for the patches and rings of biomass known as phumdis. A phumdi is a floating carpet of dead and decaying vegetation that covers about a fifth of a lake's surface. On these phumdis, tall reeds and grasses flourish, frequently growing as high as 15 feet. The sangai, or brow-antlered deer, has no other natural home outside of the Keibul Lamjao National Park. It serves as Manipur's national emblem.

I took a shared auto back for Moirang and then another one from Moirang to reach Loktak Lake. I had to wait again to share the boat ride. Taking the ride alone was coming out to be a bit much. The same family reached the lake after a few minutes. We bought tickets and went ahead for the ride. Hope either of us would have discussed about the next destination, but travelling locally has its own charm as well.Loktak lake is one of the most serene areas you will ever see. Clear water, clean air, no buildings in sight, no noise and possibly no other human being (apart from people in our boat and the staff). They are a few things I look forward to while taking such rides and Loktak surely made its mark. Kindly don't spoil its serenity.Took the auto back to Moirang. Had lunch and happy to say that I could finally find Indian bread to eat. As the bus was ready to depart for Ima Market, I boarded it and reached the destination in a little more than an hour.
