Where is Sattal? How is this region for traveling and birding?

At the foothills of the Kumaon forests in Uttarakhand, you will find the villages of Sattal and Pangot that nurture an extravagant array of bird life.

Nestled fragilely below lush orchards at a stately 1370m, Sattal is an untouched, marvelous oasis that stands elegantly, defying the modern vices of reckless urbanization that we see these days. It is a composition of seven interconnected lakes that sit quaintly surrounded by beautiful forests and is a hub for migratory birds that only visit the Himalayas.

Pangot is a village not far from the famed hill station of Nainital, situated at the foothills of the Kumaon forests that were made famous by Jim Corbett’s adventures and Ruskin Bond’s evocative, engrossing tales. Even though it is just a small village nestled in the mountains, this boudoir of tranquility and natural beauty is big on avifauna, with over 500 species of birds gracefully gliding in the sky. These enchanting birds are like beacons amidst the oak and pine forests spread across the rolling hills to their grounded compatriots who look up at and to them.

Each morning at Incredible Birding Camp when our guests wake up, they are greeted by the pleasant calls of birds, clean and fresh air, and lush green forests inviting them for exploration with open arms. We have carefully transformed this century-old property that we came across into a paradise for bird watching and photography. The camp is a 10 minute drive from the bespoke lakes of Sattal.

Together, Sattal & the villages in it’s vicinity are among the Great Himalayas’ greatest birding locales that treat your eyes to exotic birds with colorful feathers, while the idyllic environs enchant your senses into adoring submission.

Nainital is an area blessed with much ecological affluence, and its avian population, which is its crowning glory, will ensure that you get a lasting taste of it. At Pangot, prepare to be dumbfounded by a large birding slugfest, the ringside attendees in the featherweight category include black-faced warbler and the spot-winged tit both of whom cause quite a flutter. The welterweight category has champions such as the red-billed blue magpie, Eurasian jay, black-headed jay, streaked laughing thrush, crested kingfisher and collared owlet that dazzle you with their uncommon pulchritude. The middleweight contenders are the cheer pheasant, koklass pheasant and khaleej pheasant and the heavyweights include the likes of steppe eagle, Himalayan griffon and lammergeier that reign heavy and supreme.
