Imphal West District :

The Imphal West District falls in the Category of Manipur valley region. It is a tiny plain at the centre of Manipur surrounded by Plains of other districts. Imphal City, the State Capital is the nodal functional centre of this District. As a first glance, we may summarize as in the table.
It is surrounded by Senapati District on the north, on the east by Imphal East and Thoubal districts, on the south by Thoubal and Bishnupur Districts, and on the west by Senapati and Bishnupur Districts.

Imphal East District :

Imphal East District came into existence on  18-06-1997 with its head quarters at Porompat occupying the eastern part of Imphal District. The District is situated in two separate valleys of the state namely Central Valley and Jiribam Valley. The total area of District is 469.44 sq. km. approximately. The District is situated at an altitude 790 metres above the M.S. Level. The climate of the District is salubrious and Monsoon is tropical. The minimum temperature goes down to 0.6degree Celsius in winter and 41 degree Celsius in summer. It has no rail network and hence communication is entirely dependent on roads except Jiribam Sub-Division bordering Cachar District of Assam where there is a railhead. The District is connected with N.H. 39, N.H. 53 and N.H. 150.

Thoubal District :

The district of Thoubal, which occupies the bigger portion of the eastern half of the Manipur Valley, takes the shape of an irregular and triangular with its base facing north. It lies between 23 45' N and 2445' N latitude and 9345' E and 9415' E longitude. It is bounded on the north by Imphal district, on the east by Ukhrul and Chandel districts, on the south by Chandel and Churachandpur districts and on the west by the districts of Imphal and Bishnupur. It has an area of 514 sq. kms. as supplied by the Surveyor General of India. Its average elevation is not very much different from the rest of the Manipur Valley which is about 790 metres on an average above the sea level. Although the district is a part of the valley, the area of the district is not entirely plain. Many rivers flow through the district and many lakes dot its surface. Some of which are closely inter-twined with many folk tales and stories, of which mention may be made of the fishing and other episodes of the love story of the legendary Khamba-Thoibi. In fact, all important lakes of Manipur, with the exception of Loktak, are in this district. The State of Manipur used to supplement its meager resources from the annual lease of the lakes in the past.

Bishnupur District :

The Bishnupur with it’s headquarter at Bishnupur (27 Km. from Imphal) was opened on 25-05-1983. Stretching between 93.43 E and 93.53 E Longitudes and 24.18 N and 24.44 N Latitudes the total geographical area of the District is 530 Sq. Km. It is bounded on the North by Imphal West District, on the South by Churachandpur  District, on the East  by Imphal and Thoubal Districts. According to 1991 Census the total population of the district is 1,80,773 (91,125 males and 89,648 females)  having a density  of 341 per Sq. Km. and literacy of 45 % (56% for males and 34% females). There are 64 Revenue villages in the District. For a better and convenient administration the District is divided into three Sub-Divisions , viz (1) Bishnupur Sub-Division with its  HQ at Bishnupur and (2) Moirang Sub-Division (opened on 12-12-83) with its HQ at Moirang and (3) Nambol Sub-Division with its HQ at Nambol. There are 6 (six) SDC Circles in the district. Nambol, Oinam and Bishnupur circles are situated within Bishnupur Sub-Division. Ningthoukhong, Moirang and Kumbi circles are situated within Moirang Sub-Division. The population of Bishnupur and Moirang Sub -Divisions as per 1991 census is 91,781 and 88,991 respectively. Of the demographic pattern , the Manipuries Meitei's  constitute the largest population followed by the tribal  and Meitei Pangal ( Manipuri Muslims) . Splinter number of Biharis and  Marwaris are temporarily settled in the district mainly for the business professions. As for the convenience of developmental activities of the rural areas  there are two C.D Blocks, namely (1) Bishnupur C.D. Block with its HQ at Bishnupur and (2) Moirang C.D Block with its HQ at Moirang Khunou. The Sub-Divisions are under the charge of one SDO each and the C.D Blocks are under the charge of one BDO each while the circles are under the charge of one SDC each.

Churachandpur District :

Among the hill districts, the fastest growing district headquarters and hill-town is that of Churachandpur. It is truly an island of peace, tranquility, prosperity and progress. Here all the communities of Manipur, nay the whole of India, live happily in small but noticeable sizes amongst the more populous tribal folk  belonging to Chin, Kuki, Mizo, Naga and Zomi ethnic groups - a mosaic of tribes, well laid out and glowing with life.
Enthralling it is to see Assamese, Bengalis, Biharis, Keralites, Malayalis, Marwaris, Nepalis, Punjabis and Tamilians rubbing shoulders, inter-marrying and bargaining in the markets in one of the local tribal dialects ! Churachandpur, which the locals call "Lamka" - meaning 'roads meeting at a mouth' - possesses an air of fledging cosmopolitanism and can appropriately be dubbed 'The Cosmopolitan Hill Town of Manipur.
                
Tamenglong District :

Tamenglong is entirely composed of hills, ranges and narrow valleys. The hilltops and valley sides are dotted with small hamlets, located at strategic points.
The land was believed to have been formed due to orogenic movement during cretaceous and Eocene period. The main rock formations are sandstone, shale, schist. Due to weak and fragile nature of rocks and high gradient of the hill slopes, landslide is a common phenomenon in the whole district in rainy season.

Chandel District :

The Chandel District (formerly known as Tengnoupal  District ) came into existence on 13-5-1974.   The  District lies in the south-eastern part of Manipur. It is the border district of the state. Its neighbors are Myanmar (erstwhile Burma) on the south, Ukhrul district on the east, Churachandpur district on the south and west, and Thoubal district on north. It is about 64 km. away from Imphal. The National Highway No. 39 passes through this District. 

The District is inhabited by several communities. It is  sparsely inhabited by about 20 different tribes.. They are scattered all over the District. Prominent tribes  in the district are Anal, Lamkang, Kukis, Moyon, Monsang, Chothe, Thadou, Paite, and Maring etc. There are also other communities like Meiteis,  and Muslims in small numbers as compared to the tribes. Non-Manipuris like the Tamils, Bengalis, Punjabis, and Biharis are also settled in this district.

The Moreh town, the international trade center of the state lies on the southernmost part of the District. When the Trans-Asian Super Highway comes into existence, Chandel district will be one of the gateways to the Asian countries.

Ukhrul District :

Ukhrul District , the land of the colourful Tangkhuls was marked out first a Sub-Division in 1919 during the British Raj. Then in November 1969 it was upgraded to a full-fledged district, bearing the nomenclature of Manipur East District. The area of the district was 8,200 Sq. Km. according to the CSI Publication 1976. Later Tengnoupal District, now called Chandel District was carved out from this district on 15th July, 1983 and the area of the then Manipur East District was sliced down to 4,544 Sq. Km. and the title of the district was changed into Ukhrul District in 1983. Ukhrul is the District HQ. which, now, is extended down to Hundung.
