The principal focus of our long overdue trip to Manipur (in Northeast India) was to see the endangered Sangai or Manipur Brow-antlered Deer. Even more stunning is its habitat — the Loktak Lake, the largest freshwater lake in Northeast India, and is famous for the phumdis (heterogeneous mass of vegetation, soil, and organic matter at various stages of decomposition) floating over it. A part of the lake – Keibul Lamjao – where Sangais still remain is the only floating national park in the world. These images are in and around the Loktak lake.
