#8 of 19 in Nature in Nainital District
Relax at Sattal, 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.

  • Nice place for picknics & Adventure activity. Needs upkeep. TOURIST NEED TO KEEP THE PLACE CLEAN. MANY OF THE TOURISTS ARE IRRESPONSIBLE
  • Untouched beauty with lots of greenery. A must visit place. One should stay there to feel the fresh air and peace.
  • It is also a good option.. If you want to spent your holidays in Nainital.. It is nearby lake of Nainital.. Some water adventure sports are there.. Food options.. You can spent your full day here. Must visit if you are planning for Nainital.
  • Awesome and scenic location for Nature lovers. Untouched beauty. Very Near to Nainital and Bhimtal. Can be covered in one day but worth of spending at least one night here. KMVN Lodges and one more hotel is near to this lake.
  • 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
