  North East India  >> Manipur  >>  Loktak Lake & Sendra Island
Scenic splendour    

One of the most enchanting and biggest fresh-water lakes in the north-east is the Manipur's Loktak Lake. The Sendra Island Tourist Bungalow offers dazzling views of the lake, its rich plant and avian life and the intriguing floating weed, shallow bowl-like islands (Phumdi) and the fishermen who live on them harvesting water chestnuts.

Situated in the middle of the lake, the tourist home has a cafe and makes an ideal look¬out. Boating has been introduced along the lake's labyrinthine waterways.

Also on the southern part of the lake is the world's only floating national park,

the Keibul Lamjao National Park, a unique habitat of the rare Sangai, the brow antlered deer or the 'dancing deer'.

The entire lake complex is a wildlife enthusiast's dream.
