Located in the Indian state of Manipur, Keibul Lamjao National Park is the world's only floating wildlife sanctuary.

The park’s Loktak Lake-the largest freshwater lake in northern India-is a spectacular sight, dotted with green patches and rings of vegetation known as "phumdi" that float atop the water.

A biodiverse park, Keibul Lamjao provides sustenance to the people and animals of Manipur-including sangai, an endangered subspecies of brow-antlered deer revered by locals as the binding soul between humans and nature.
