Imphal River

The Imphal River is a major river in Manipur state, northeastern India which originates in Kangpokpi district to the north of Kangpokpi district headquarters Kangpokpi. It is a tributary of the Manipur River, joining it in Thoubal district.[1] It flows past Loktak Lake and the city of Imphal and joins the Lilong River, some 10 kilometres (6.2 mi) to the south.[2][3] It flows to Myanmar (Burma), where it is known as the Manipura River. It then reaches the Bay of Bengal, thereby connecting Imphal city to the sea. Imphal River was used by Japanese soldiers in boats to reach Imphal in World War II.
