World’s Only Floating Lake – Loktak Lake, Manipur

The largest freshwater lake in India’s North-East, the Loktak Lake is a sight to behold. Because of its floating phumdis, it has been named the world’s only floating lake. Apart from its scenic beauty, this lake plays a big role in Manipur’s economy, serving as a source for hydropower generation, irrigation, drinking water supply and source of livelihood for local fishermen. The largest of all the phumdis, or floating islands on Loktak, is the Keibul Lamjao National Park, the last natural refuge of the endangered Manipur Brow-Antlered deer. – Incredible India !
