Together with a quick tour of the small yet impressive Manipur State Museum. Thereafter, head to a picnic lunch at the verdant Santhei Natural Park. Once over there, admire the many stalls showcasing the famous Andro clayware & pottery. Afterwards, a walk into the past awaits in the form of the elaborate Mutua Heritage Village complex. Return towards Imphal to call it a day.
