Sattal is a group of the above mentioned 7 lakes. We will know here about the most beautiful lake of the above, that is Garud Tal.
Garud Tal is situated 1 kilometer prior to the main attraction of Sattal. Garud tal not adjacent to road but it is few meters away from the road, that's why many people go back without visiting this place resulting a small number of people in Garud Tal or a very less crowd.
Garud Tal is also regarded as Haunted lake, it looks like abandoned lake, the number of people visiting this lake is very low, because of this people think that Garud tal is a haunted lake although the reason behind lonesomeness of this lake is that it is a private lake owned by Sattal Christian Ashram and the other reason is that it is not adjacent to road.
Garud Tal is the most beautiful among the other 6 nearby lakes. Due to lack of information about the place people often doesn't visit this secluded place and head towards other common attractions.
The emerald green water of the lake, the lush green forest surrounding the lake and seeing the branches of trees in and just above the lake is vey eye satisfying. The banks of Garud tal are natural unlike other nearby lakes where there are man made banks , one can even walk into the lake for few steps. The Garud Tal and the forest around it are still untouched by humans, no human made structures can be found in this area. The flowing cold breeze of the mountains near the Garud Tal takes away all the pain and tension.
One can easily spend whole day sitting in the shores of Garud Tal. Sattal  is compared with England's West Moreland.
