Keibul Lamjao National Park is a unique and ecologically significant protected area located in the state of Manipur, India. It holds the distinction of being the world's only floating national park, primarily known for its conservation efforts aimed at protecting the endangered Manipur brow-antlered deer, locally known as Sangai.

The park is situated in Loktak Lake, the largest freshwater lake in Northeast India, renowned for its pundits, which are floating islands made of organic matter, vegetation, and soil. These pundits serve as the habitat for the Sangai deer, as well as various other species of flora and fauna.

Keibul Lamjao National Park is not only vital for the conservation of the Sangai deer but also serves as a crucial wetland ecosystem that supports a diverse range of aquatic plants, birds, and other wildlife species. Visitors to the park can explore the unique landscape by boat, allowing them to witness the floating islands and the rich biodiversity that thrives within them.

In addition to its ecological significance, Keibul Lamjao National Park holds cultural importance for the indigenous communities of Manipur, who revere the Sangai deer as a symbol of their cultural identity and heritage.

Overall, Keibul Lamjao National Park offers a one-of-a-kind opportunity for nature enthusiasts, conservationists, and travelers to witness the delicate balance between humans and nature and to appreciate the beauty and biodiversity of Manipur's wetland ecosystems.
