Imagine a place where you are standing on a piece of land which is actually floating on water...

No, we're not talking about a set from a James Cameron movie, there's a legit national park in India that floats on water.

One of its kind in the entire world, Keibul Lamjao National Park in Manipur is simply a surreal place. The circular phumdis (floating decomposed plant materials) are actually responsible for the floating of the land and form 2/3rd to 3/4th of the entire national park. Situated at a distance of around 53 km from Imphal, this place is spread over 40 sq. kms and the iconic Loktak Lake forms a major part of it.
