Sattal or Sat Tal is an interconnected group of seven pristine freshwater lakes in Bhimtal district of Uttarakhand, India. Situated at an altitude of about 1,370 meters and set against captivating surroundings of dense Oak and Pine forest, Sattal unfurls the rustic beauty of lower Himalayas. The region is famous for its rich biodiversity as it is home to about 500 species of resident and migratory birds; and over 500 species of butterflies, moths, beetles and other insects.

Manila is a tiny hamlet located about 87 km from Ranikhet. This lesser know place is perched at an elevation of 1,820 meters, snuggled in the Kumaon region of Uttarakhand. Home to Shri. Manila Devi this place offers immense peace and tranquility.
Manila also offers breath-taking panoramic views of mighty Himalayas right from Trishul to Panchchulli, including Nanda Devi peaks. Manila is also famous for Cheer Pheasant and Koklass Pheasant apart from numerous other bird species.
