☀️Loktak Lake, the largest freshwater lake in North India

This iconic lake, located in Bishnupur district is known for its circular floating swamps 🛶(called phumdis in the local language). The term phumdis refers to a collection of heterogeneous mass of vegetation,🌿 soil, and organic matter at various stages of decomposition. Resembling miniature islands, these phumdis are found in various forms and floating on the lake. Covering an area of ​​300 square meters, the lake is a lifeline for many people👩‍👩‍👦‍👦. It is a source of water for hydropower generation, irrigation and drinking water supply in the region, it's also a source of income for many fishermen who largely depend on it🐟. We can spend some times around the lake, take breathes and peacefully look the Children playing and running around on these phumdis🏃‍♂️
