This is the best lake as per my opinion and there are multiple reasons for that. First is that it is in forest area. You can hear all birds chirping and water flowing. Sun rays coming through the long trees and falling on lake. Very peaceful and natural. This is what I wish for when we come far from cities. We took boat here and stayed in lake for 30-40 minutes. Other lakes are not beautiful because from boat you can see people and houses. But here in Sattal you can feel birds, ducks, air, water and sun.
Sattal is derived from Saat taal meaning 7(Saat) lakes(taal).
