Sattal or Sat Tal is an interconnected group of seven pristine freshwater lakes in Bhimtal, Uttarakhand. 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.

Pangot is located about 15 Km from Nainital and about 45 Km from Sattal. Dominated by thick oak, pine and rhododendron forest with perennial streams crisscrossing the landscape the scenic beauty of this place is breathtaking.

Heaven for naturalists, birders and photographers alike, these forests are literally pulsating with life with constant sweet chirping of birds. The mesmerizing avian fauna include a unique assortment of birds where one can spot a variety of Babblers, Tits, Thrushes, Raptors and Woodpeckers.
