Loktak Lake is the largest freshwater lake in India, also called the only “Floating lake” Lake Loktak is also called the “floating lake” due to the floating phumdis (heterogeneous mass of vegetation, soil, and organic matters at various stages of decomposition). The circular ones, called athapums, are artificially created for fishing.
It’s really interesting to watch the people fishing there. They are so calm and concentrated while waiting for their next catch.
