The Imphal River is a major river in Manipur state, northeastern India which originates in Senapati District at the hills oF Karong. 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 Indian Ocean, thereby connecting Imphal city to the Indian Ocean. Imphal River was used by Japanese soldiers in boats to reach Imphal in World War II.
