Senapati is a district in the state of Manipur. It is bounded by Imphal, Ukhrul and Tamenglong districts. It also shares a state boundary with Nagaland. Its climate is quite humid with a generous amount of rainfall all through the year. Senapati is one of the ancient centers of art and culture of the local tribes like Nagas and Meitis.

There are several places to visit at Senapati like Mao and Markhel. Mao, located high up in the hills, is one of the oldest hill stations in this area. This hill station also borders Nagaland and is located halfway between the state capital of Imphal and Dimapur. It is quite easily accessible as the National Highway No. 39 also passes through this location. Mao is located at a height of almost 5760 feet. The Mao Inspection Bungalow, built in 1897 by the Royal Military Engineers, bear testimony to the heritage of this location. Also, the Mao Naga dance, a local dance of this region, is also quite popular.

Markhel is venerated by the local tribes as the common origin of the Meiti and the Naga tribes. There is an ancient Pear tree, which has a place in the legends of these tribes and is supposed to bear testimony to the dispersal of these tribes. There is also a rolling valley called the Dzukou valley in which rare species of flowers blossom in the summer months. Mount Isu, the highest peak of this region, also draws huge number of tourists.
