Deoria Tal Lake, Rudra Prayag

#1 of 7 in Things to do in Rudra Prayag
Deoria Tal is a lake located about 3 km on an uphill trek from the villages of Mastura and Sari, on the Ukhimath-Chopta road in Uttarakhand. At an altitude of about 2438 meters, it has heavily wooded, lush green surroundings with snow-covered mountains in the backdrop.
Jeeps are available from Ukhimath to reach Sari, a nearby village, via Mastura village. For return journey, one can go down trekking to Mastura to get a shared jeep.
Alternately, one can trek to Deoria Tal from Ukhimath, a fairly comfortable 7 km trek. 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.
Hindu 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

You must visit this place once in your lifespan in Dec-Feb. You will get an amazing view. Trees generate a beautiful reflection in the lake. I have no words to define the beauty of this place.
