Home to the world's only floating national park, Loktak Lake is famous for being covered in "phumdis"--small floating islands made of decomposing vegetation and soil. The park is located on the largest of the phumdis and is home to exotic species, such as the Indian python and the endangered sangai deer, the Manipuri state animal. The lake has been facing serious environmental threats, including pollution, erosion, and decline of biodiversity-- it currently features over 200 species of aquatic plants, over 400 animal species, and more than 100 bird species.

  • Beautiful and ecologically very important lake. Very big lake with floating garden in oval shape which are balancing the ecological nature of water. It helps for grooming fishes. Lakhs of people are dependent on it for their economical needs. Leisure activities are there like lake safari and others with some restaurants. Nice place to visit.
  • The best place for all of you to relax. While seeing the vast lake from the top of the hills. Those views and winds remind me of what I'm looking for. Lovely place.
  • 15 min and 30 min rides available. They take you to the Floating Island in the middle of the lake & you can click photos there. Thrilling National Geographical experience. Enjoy.
  • Beautiful tourist place!! Transparent water. Pisciculture facilities. Boating charm under the sky. A very good experience with camera. First go to view point at hill top, have a cup of great coffee. Take some snaps of sprawling lake. Then take a launch ride to explore the charm.
  • Awesome. I was awestruck by it's aerial view. Wow. So lovely. So much well maintained
