There are options of overnight camping, jungle trek etc. There are a couple of shops which sell tea and snacks, but these close at sundown. Trekkers usually combine this trek with the nearby trek to Tungnath (highest Hindu shrine devoted to Lord Shiva) and Chandrashila which are approached from Chopta.Panoramic viewThe lake is known for its wide 300° panorama. Mountains like Chaukhamba, Nilkantha, Bandarpunch, Kedar Range, Kalanag, etc. can be viewed from here. There exists another route from Deoria Tal to Tungnath, which is mainly chosen as Night Camping, Jungle Trekking, etc.In the Hindu mythologyHindu mythology states that the Devas bathed in this lake hence the name. The lake is also believed to be the "Indra Sarovar" referred to in the Puranas by wandering, Hindu mendicants Sadhus. It is also believed that it was the place from where the mighty Pandavas were asked queries by Yaksha. According to the locals it was also said that this lake was built by Bheem who was strongest among the Pandavas to appease his thirst and Yudhister who was the wisest suggested Bheem to build his own lake

  • A pristine place hidden away from the outside world. The view of the snow capped peaks from here is very beautiful. However, too many people visiting the Tal has made its water a bit polluted.
  • The trek starts from the base village Sari. Its a 3km uphill trek from there. At the top, you need to pay certain amount as an entry fee. There is an option to pitch your tent and stay the night after paying some charges. Once you reach the top, you'll be greeted with one of the most amazing views of the nearby valley and ofcourse, the lake. A good place to unwind and bask in the nature's glory.
  • It was a great experience to spend the night here with friends.. The full moon made our stay all the more beautiful.. As the evening progressed it got more and more chilly and felt really cold at night in out sleeping bags so need to be slightly careful of the chill A 3 Km trek from Sari Village.. you can do deorital and chandrashila trek over a long weekend from Delhi
