Sattal is named after the seven lakes which surround this picturesque hamlet of Himalayas. Due to its rich flora and fauna, the place has carved out its niche in the field of bird watching
Rock climbing is considered as the best of adventure sport to feel the rocky terrains of the region. There are many fixed paths in Sattal which gives a fantastic experience of climbing in the lower Himalayas .
In the lower Himalayas, the treks are pretty steep, but the route passes through scenic villages, beautiful orchards, farms, etc. While trekking one can have a closer look at the simple and subtle life of the villagers.
Bonfires something that one should not miss out when visiting this beautiful lake of seven lakes. The feeling is ecstatic when you sit under a sky full of stars with your friends and family cracking jokes or sharing exciting stories.
Birding in Sattal is a good option I realized this when I visited the place for the first time. The lakes, lush green forest and the Himalayas in the backdrop provide sights of the many gorgeous Himalayan birds.
After spending four days in Sattal, it has become my favorite destination that I want to visit again, and again the best thing about this place is that it is away from the crowd and is adorned full of scenic beauty.
