This unusual wilderness is the home of the Sangai or Manipur brow- antlered deer. Once a hunting reserve for water fowl, the tiny park is just 40 sq. km. in area. It was declared a sanctuary in 1954 when numbers of the highly localised Sangai became dangerously depleted. The graceful deer, noted for their curved antlers, live on the floating vegetation on the Logtak Lake, 32 km south of Imphal.
