Unlike anything you have ever witnessed
Nov. 2020
Loktak lake is unlike anything you have ever witnessed. The cinematic view of the sunrise and the silhouettes of fishermen casting their nets evoke the feeling of awe.
There are also equally interesting places to visit nearby such as INA War Museum, Moirang Japanese War Memorial, Red Hill, Loukoipat Ecological Park and many more. Read our article to know the ins and outs of Loktak lake.

Romantic experience in Loktak Lake
Mar. 2020
The experience in Loktak lake was awesome. I went with my mother, wife and 2 sons. The weeds in the lake give a different scenic beauty. We boarded boats and travelled across the lake and enjoyed the Sandra Island as well. The weather was cool. The wind was soothing.

Worth a visit

The world's only floating national park was worth the drive out of Imphal.

The views were brilliant. I would highly recommend a trip out into the lake by boat. There are a number of homesteads on the islands within the lake where u can arrange for freshly caught fish to be grilled .. for a relaxing lunch

Excellent Tourist Spot
Mar. 2020 • Couples
Amazing place to be. One of the best lakes that I have ever seen or visited. It also has many floating homestay where you can stay over night or drop for a meal. Boat facility is available and run by locals. People are nice around and helpful however I believe govt. should take more steps to create awareness among people about the lake so that more tourists can be attracted.
Overall it's excellent and I would surely recommend others to visit the place.

I'd recommend this if you have an appreciation for natural biodiversity. The area contains the world's only floating national park and the floating islands are something I've never seen before. It can be busy however.

Has an unusual and interesting National Park
Dec. 2019
In one part of Loktak Lake is the Keibul Lamjoa National Park. This little visited park is unusual because it consists of over 40 square kilometres of floating vegetation. The vegetation forms a mat about a metre thick which bounces as you walk on it. Its main claim to fame is that it is the last natural home of the rare Sangai deer, the national animal of Manipur. There is a hilltop viewpoint overlooking the vegetation, and from it we were lucky enough to see three of the deer, one of which stayed in full view for a good 10 minutes and was close enough to see all its features with binoculars. We also saw a wild boar in the distance. We were told the best time to see the deer is in early morning, so we did well as we were there in late morning. We also took a short boat ride through the vegetation. This was worth doing to see it close up and to have a chance to stand on it. Overall we'd rate this National Park as 5*.

The main part of Loktak Lake is unusual and striking, but seen at its best from the air. We passed over it as we flew into Imphal, and had another good view down on to it when we stopped for coffee at a hilltop hotel. The short boat trip we took on the lake, though, was disappointing: just a short straight run from the jetty to a semi-derelict building on an island and back. It allowed us to see the floating vegetation and a fishing boat close up, but that's all. Unlike Inle Lake in Myanmar, there's no human activity on the lake apart from fishing boats and the occasional fisherman's hut.

Lake house on floating grass
Dec. 2019 • Friends
Loktak has wonderful lakes which are great in area. Nature has been extremely kind. For tourists attractions motor boats ride ( Rs. 500, 700, 1000/-) take a group of 4-6 near these houses. It's enjoyable but also dangerous. There's no government regulating authority nearby to cater for emergency situation.

Natural scenery and beauty all around, good memories though.

Trip to Loktak lake Manipur
Dec. 2019 • Friends
Situated at 50 km from Imphal it is the largest fresh water land with thousands of floating islands inhabited by numerous farmers living on rice and fish grown on the floating plots. It is place to be seen to experience this wonderful creation of nature.
