Holiday in Hill Station Sattal - Travel India

Contributing Traveller: Kamal Banerjee


Placed with placidity and repose, merged with the melody of fresh fauna, clear blue water and sweet chirping of birds Sattal is located just twenty-three km from Nainital and at an altitude of approx four thousand feet, surrounded by dense oak and pine forests.

The place offers unparallel bird watching opportunities and the ideal base location to cover the upper reaches of Kumaon. Lazing on a hammock, with a pair of binoculars in hand, one can spot babblers, tits, long tailed minivets, woodpeckers, pigeons and myna in plenty.

Weather in Sattal

The weather remains excellent all through the year. Even the monsoon months are wonderful to view the flowers in full bloom and the cloud that routinely pass by mixed with the mist that turns oneself into virtual poet or painter. Winters are clear and bright and ideal for watching snowfalls in the surrounding mountains.

Natural Spring: Next day take a casual walk to Subhas Dhara. The natural spring comes from the dense forest of Sattal. Visit the temple enroute or take a picnic hamper to the Garuda Lake.

Don’t miss to visit the Methodist Ashram established by Stanley Jones, an ardent follower of Mahatma Gandhi.
