#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. See Sattal Lake and all Sattal has to offer by arranging your trip with our Sattal vacation generator.
