Deoria Tal Information 

Reaching Deoria Tal

Deoria Tal has to be approached from Sari village, upto which once can travel by road. Sari is 10 Km from Ukimath and almost equidistant from Chopta. The car can access only upto Sari, from where it is a 2 Km uphill walk to Deoria Tal. It takes around 1 hour 30 minutes, walking at a casual pace. For those who are unwilling to walk the steep path, horses are available from Sari. Charges vary between Rs 400 – Rs 450. However, it might be difficult to find horses during the peak summer months, when the horses move to Chopta and further to the four Dhams for more lucrative business.
Alternately, one can take a longer route and walk directly from Deoria Tal.
Or walk up from Sari and walk down to Ukimath.

Staying at Deoria Tal

Staying options at Deoria Tal are limited. Tents are available for rent on the banks of Deoriatal. For tent booking, contact Lakhpat Singh or Rakesh Singh Negi (details given below). Food can be arranged from the eateries in Sari village and has to be carried on the way up. Toilet is open – there is no toilet tent.

There is an advertisement of Reflection Resort at Deoria Tal, contact Kunwar Singh Negi 9410530559 (did not see it or check it out personally).

Alternately, one can stay at Sari and make an early morning trip to Deoria Tal to catch the sunrise. Limited and decent accommodation is available at Sari. Contact Lakhpat Singh or Rakesh Singh Negi (details given below).

Another common practice is to stay at the nearest places of prominence – Ukimath or Chopta. [Refer to my post on Garhwal for staying options at Ukimath]. One can stay at any of these places and make a day trip to Deoria Tal. However, staying options are more at Ukimath. One can also stay at Mayadeep Resorts at Duggal Bhitta, which is nearer to Sari.

    Dear Siddhartha,
    Yes, it is possible to do so. Gaurikund to Sari should be around 1 – 1.5 hours (30Km approx). Start early so that you can spend a considerable amount of time at Deoriatal.

    Its very easy. From Saharanpur you can take a train or bus to Haridwar. From Haridwar its a road journey to Ukimath and then to Sari village. You start for Deoriatal from Sari village.
