Jump to last reply

Hi I am new to this forum, few days ago I saw an article over some unknown places of India which we should visit, I want to know more about those kind of place

1. Lonar crater lake , Maharashtra

It is a saline soda lake at Lonar in Buldana district, Maharashtra. It was created by a comet that hit 50,000 years ago, but new studies in 2010 tell us that this might be 570 000 ± 47 000 years old. It has a mean diameter of 1.2 km and 137 m deep.It is also 3rd largest crater

2. Loktak lake , Manipur

It is the largest fresh water lake in India and only floating lake in world where you can find floating phumdis (heterogeneous mass of vegetation, soil, and organic matters at various stages of decomposition) on it. It is located near Moirang in Manipur state, India.

3. Majuli river island , Assam

It is the largest river island in whole world. Initially this island had a total area of 1,250 square kilometres (483 sq mi), but having to lost much land due to erosion, it had an area of only 421.65 square kilometres (163 sq mi) in 2001. Majuli has shrunk as the river surrounding it has grown. The island is formed by the Brahmaputra river in the south and the Kherkutia Xuti, and a branch of the Brahmaputra, joined by the Subansiri River in the north. Mājuli island is accessible by ferries from the City of Jorhat. The island is about 200 kilometres east from the state’s largest city —Guwahati. The island was formed due to course changes by the river Brahmaputra and its tributaries, mainly the Lohit. Mājuli is also the abode of the Assamese neo-Vaisnavite culture.

4. Agatti Airport in Lakshadweep

The airstrip was constructed during 1987−88 for operation of Dornier 228 type of aircraft and was inaugurated on 16 April 1988. Initially, the terminal was housed in a small temporary structure. Construction of Terminal Building, Air Traffic Control Tower and related structures commenced in 2006. However, the construction of the Terminal Building was stopped midway due to the proposed extension of Runway & Basic strip.

5. Parashar Lake near Mandi, Himachal Pradesh

The lake is located at a height of 2730 m above sea level. With deep blue waters, the lake is held sacred to the sage Prashar and he is regarded to have meditated there. Surrounded by snow-capped peaks and looking down on the fast flowing river Beas, the lake can be approached via Drang. The temple was built in the thirteenth century and legend has it was built by a baby from a single tree. The lake has a floating island in it and it is said to be unclear how deep it is, with a diver not being able to find its depth
