Peace, quiet and serenity: People say the real magic of Deoria Tal is to be witnessed during the sunrise. Early mornings are ideal, as the winds would not have not picked up steam, giving us the best still waters to function as mirrors. The lake is surrounded in a soothingly inclined field bounded by a deep wood cover. Set majestically in the lap of the magnificent mountain peaks, this is one of the best spots to stretch and meditate. A perfect place to enjoy some stress free, quiet time, a rare occurrence in the cities.
Experience culture: At about a few hundred metres on this path is an ancient Shiva Temple, made in early Nagara architecture style. The walls of the temple are plain with geometrically placed ridges made in stone. The priest (baba) who lives and runs the temple from there, have incredible stories of perseverance and adventures to share to anyone who loves to sit down for a chat and a cup of chai.
