Manipur Industrial Visit

The most interesting aspect of Manipur is that it’s the only state in country where almost all the public sector initiative for industrialization failed, and the cottage industry proliferated, the major cottage industry that you can visit during your industrial tour are Bamboo Processing, Handloom Industry , Handicraft Industry , Food Processing Industry .

Manipur is blessed with an amazing variety of flora and fauna, with over 67 percent of its geographical area being hill tracts covered by forests. There are 500 varieties of orchids which grow in Manipur of which 472 have been identified, in addition to ‘Siroi Lily’ which is the only terrestrial lily grown on the hill tops of Siroi hill, Ukhrul.

However, the most unique is the Sangai, the dancing deer. The floating mass of vegetation on the Loktak Lake sustains small herds of this endemic deer which unfortunately has the dubious distinction of being the most threatened Cervid (known as Phumdi) in the world.

The state of Manipur shares 352 km common International boundary with Myanmar and lies south of Nagaland, north of Mizoram and east of Assam.
