Travelling With Like-Minded People
It was friday, and I was really excited for my trip with Hippy Travellers. I reached the boarding point at Kashmere Gate Metro Station (Delhi), met my trip captain and other co-travellers. Travelling is that beautiful journey in which we connect with different like-minded people. A good company always lead into a memorable trip. After an overnight journey from Delhi we reached Sari Village at around 7am. Sari is a small village, quiet and “untouristy”. This quaint Himalayan village is still untouched from other commercialized cities & towns.We got freshen up, ate our yummilicious breakfast and prepared for the trek to Deoria Tal.
Camping At Deoria Tal
Surrounded with towering deodar and pine trees, the forest trek towards Deoria Lake is amazing. The trek is not that much difficult and fully recommended if you are a beginner. The 3 kms rugged trail will give you some breathtaking views of the mighty Himalayas. After hiking amidst woods & lush green meadows, we reached our campsite at Deoria Tal. The lake was so calm and the wide 360° panoramic view from there was simply mesmerizing. In the background, snow-capped peaks like Chaukhambha, Nilkantha, and Kedar range add to the beauty of this offbeat place. We had our lunch and spent some leisure time near the majestic Deoria Lake.
The sky turned crimson as the sun was bidding goodbye. We were sitting on a chair in front of the bonfire with tea in our hands. We geared up for the bonfire and fun activities with soulful music, played few games, shared our funny travel experiences and much more. It was so peaceful, chilly and after dinner we just laid down on the grass, gazing at the glittering stars!
Sunrise In The Himalayas
Though we slept late at night, but still woke up early just to see the blissful sunrise. Deoria Tal is a paradise for bird lovers. There are so many varieties of birds that If there was a birders’ trail, then it has got to be Deoriatal. There are hundreds of birds to see and photograph especially at early morning. We had our hot breakfast and packed our bags to trek down.
Before descending back to Sari Village, we clicked some group photographs and candid shots. It was a wonderful experience with everyone, and I will definitely gonna miss every moment I had on this trip to Deoriatal. We started our journey back to Sari Village with lots of memories to cherish for lifetime. Since, the village is non-touristy, therefore you will not find much options for food. We had our lunch finally headed out to Delhi in evening.
If you are a beginner and looking for an easy trek in the Himalayas, then head to Deoria Tal for a perfect getaway away from the chaos of city life. Experience the beauty of nature in utmost tranquility and feel rejuvenated. Thank you Hippy Traveller for curating this sweet little trip to Deoria Tal.
