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.
