Have you heard of Loktak Lake in Manipur? This is the only floating lake in the world. Its uniqueness lies in the fact that there are several floating islands of different geometrical shapes in this lake.

Loktak Lake is located near Moirang in Manipur state. This ancient lake is the largest freshwater lake in north-eastern India. Due to the floating phumdis on it it is also called the only `Floating Lake` in the world. The lake is also an important bird area as it`s a potential breeding site for waterfowl and is a staging site for migratory birds. There are varied types of habitat supported by lake due to which the lake is blessed with rich diversity flora and fauna.

The Loktak Lake is a unique destination for tourism. The lake offers excellent opportunities for visitors to enjoy the beauty of the lake and its several islands located inside it that are studded with floating phumdis of different geometrical shapes. I have visited this lake once and it s a worth visiting once in life. Its beauty can never be compared to anything else in the world. This is just a wonderful place.
