If Heaven Had A Lake, It Would Closely Resemble Sattal, Uttrakhand

Sattal or Sat Tal (Hindi for "seven lakes") is an interconnected group of seven freshwater lakes situated in the Lower Himalayan Range near Bhimtal, a town of the Nainital district in UttarakhandIndia.[1] During the British Raj, the area had a tea plantation, one of four in the Kumaon area at that time.[2]
The lakes sit at an altitude of 1370 metres below lush orchards in the Mehragaon valley.
Set amongst dense forests of oak and pine trees, Sattal is one of the few unspoiled and unpolluted freshwater biomes in India. These lakes are a paradise for migratory birds. It is home to a few camps being operated mostly by local people catering to tourists looking for outdoor vacations.

Skip The Ride in the Urbanified Nainital Lake but pay a good amount for ride in the Sattal Lake. The boatman do charge you a bit extra, and take you real close to the banks, We could spot a big snake
