Sattal Lake, Sattal

#8 of 19 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.

  • Untouched beauty with lots of greenery. A must visit place. One should stay there to feel the fresh air and peace.
  • This is place to calm down and relax. There is sooo much peace. Choose to pedal your own boat (life jackets are provided), just park your boat wherever you feel its calm and peaceful (right in the middle of lake or nearby shores)... and tune in to nature's music
  • Sattal or Seven Lakes (saat means seven and taal means lake) is a picturesque lake in Nainital, Uttarakhand. It's a calm and serene lake, very peaceful atmosphere. We did boating there. This lake is not as popular as Lake Naini, but it has its own charm. It is one of the tourist attractions of Nainital.
  • There is some tal over there, tal means lake. Its locate near the nainital and u can boating over there and also swiming and rope climbing available. Many veg and non-veg resturant there. Nice place near nainital to visit.
