Explanation:

Keibul Lamjao National Park is located in the state of Manipur, India. It is the only floating national park in the world, known for the phumdis, which are floating mats of vegetation.

These phumdis are made up of decomposed plant materials, soil, and organic matter that accumulate over time and form a unique ecosystem.

The park is famous for being the last natural habitat of the endangered Manipur brow-antlered deer, also known as the Sangai deer.

The floating vegetation supports a rich biodiversity and provides a unique habitat for various species of birds, reptiles, and aquatic life.
