Holidify's Opinion

  What's Great?

Nature at its best. Numerous lakes and hills. Picturesque Views. Greenery all around. A wide variety of flora.

  What's not so Great?

Suffers from vagary of monsoon, leading to alternate spells of flood and drought. Prone to abundant rainfall thereby causing the district to be waterlogged.

For Whom

Thoubal is for all those who love petrichor, the natural fragrance that develops when the rain hits the soil and for the admirers of nature and its components. Best for couples.
