#8 of 17 in Nature in Nainital District
Relax at Sattal Lake, a cluster of seven calm freshwater lakes amidst lush greenery in Mehragaon valley. Standing at 1,370 m (4,000 ft) above the sea level, the area offers scenic views of the Lower Himalayas and orchards around the lake. Take a boat ride, paddle or feed the geese or take a hike through dense oak and pine forests. The area around a lake provides shelter for a number of migratory birds which you can observe, including Himalayan griffon, kingfishers and red-billed blue magpie. For more adventurous ones there is a zip-line. A butterfly museum on the lake displays over 2,500 specimens of butterflies and moth plus 1,000 other local insects.
