Pangot and Sat Tal is the best birding destination in the Uttarakhand. This offbeat destination so close to Nainital, yet so far. The place boast great avian life, great accommodation and undoubtedly great views of Himalayas.
From Pangot ride around and explore the jungles and click the pictures of the birds. The views of Nanda Devi Sanctuary is breathtaking. While in Sattal walk the shades of the trees, take a boat ride or canoe.
Plan atleast 4 days in the area for proper exploration. Travelling via road will take around 7 hours if you leave early from Delhi. Alternatively take a train to Kathgodam.
