Manipur, India

Manipur, a little Shangarila located in North-East India, is a Jewel of India. This little corner is a paradise on Earth where Mother Nature has been extra generous in her bounty. Least touched and least discovered Manipur promises to be the great tourist discovery of the 21st century. An oval shaped valley surrounded by blue green hills, rich in art and tradition has inspired description such as the Switzerland of the East with its cascading rapids, tripling rivers, varieties of flowers, exotic blooms and lakes. The people of Manipur include Meitei, Nagas, Kuki-Chin-Mizo and Gorkhas groups and Muslims and other colourful communities which have lived in complete harmony for centuries. These are the people whose folklore, myths and legends, dances, indigenous games and martial arts, exotic handlooms and handicrafts are invested with the mystique of nature.

Main Attractions in Manipur

Imphal

Imphal is one of the few places in India where nothing seems to have changed. Imphal in Manipur is a tiny valley tucked away in the northeastern state of Manipur. Relics of an old, historical palace, well-planned temples and ceremonial houses in all their splendour amidst the tall pine and jackfruit trees, speak of Imphal's ancient past. Lying at the center of Manipur valley, Imphal is one of the most ancient towns in the Indian subcontinent and has much to provide to a discerning tourist.

LAMJAO NATIONAL PARK

It sounds crazy to first hear the term, floating park, but when visiting Lamjao park one could see why it is called so. Keibul Lamjao National Park is the only floating park in the world which 53 kms away from Imphal. The islands here are covered in dense aquatic grass giving it an appearance of a floating body. The park is surrounded by three hills Pabot, Toya and Chingiao and marshes. On the north of this park lies the Loktak Lake, which is the largest fresh water lake in the Eastern India and is rich in bio-diversity. There are many floating islands on this lake called Phumidis.

LOKTAK LAKE

Loktak lake is also often referred to as the 'Lifeline of Manipur' as it is the largest freshwater lake in the North East India and it looks like a miniature island sea. The unique thing about Loktak lake, which makes it famous in tourist circuits is the survival of various life forms that are in and surrounding the lake, besides the human inhabitants of the lake. The floating island on this Lake called as Phumdi, which is purely made of water weeds and plants, is an important tourist destination. The Keibul Lamjao National Park which is home to brow-antlered deer or Sangai is located close to this lake. Sendra Island is another important tourist destination. Boating and other water activities are organized here to spend the day. The hue of the lake keeps changing with the passing day from gold to peach to grey.
