Loktak Lake (Imphal), April 27: Manipur, literally meaning a jewelled land, has largely remained unexplored much by tourists because of militancy. One of the State’s fascinating places is Loktak Lake.
Loktak Lake, 45 kilometres from Imphal city, is the largest fresh water lake in the Northeast region with the only floating National Park of its kind.
But instead of drawing tourists, the lake has been misused as a safe haven by the militants.
Recently, operation summer storm was launched to flush out the armed militants from the lake region.
