Food, sight-seeing and shopping: The resort or hotels located here generally provide stay with all meals. However there are lots of dhabas on the lake shores where you can enjoy a veriety of food. The food served by the Sattal Forest Resort during our stay was excellent.
Activities & things to do: The place is an idyllic retreat and is best to lie down, relax and watch the lush green surroundings. The views and the ambience are so good that you would not like to move out of the resort. And if you do, there are plenty of things to do. You can take leisurely or strenuous walks around the lakes as you like. A boat ride is just a stone's throw away. You can enjoy the snacks and delcious corn by the lakeside dhabas. If you happen to visit in summers, you can also do activities like kayaking, river crossing, rappelling, burma bridge which are carried on by independent operators like Wildrift etc. While kayaking, you can also take a dip in the Hanuman tal. Paragliding is also being done in Naukuchiatal whichis just 20-25 mins drive from the resort.
Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc: Sattal is within a comfortable driving distance of 6 hours non-stop - almost the closest a hill station can be. It is about 320 kms from Delhi.
