            Deoriya  Tal is situated on the Chopta - Ukhimath road about 3 kms, from roadside at Sari Village and is at an altitude of 2438 mts. This lake has captivating surroundings with forests all around. The reflection of the mighty Chaukhamba peak in the lake creates beautiful effect. The road is motorable upto Sari, 10 kms from Ukhimath and from there one has to trek about 3 kms. 


The story associated with this scenic place is that when the Pandavas were in exile and were hiding from the Kaurava king Duryodhan, they stopped nearby for a rest. When the mother Kunti felt thirty, one by one four sons out of five went to fetch water from this lake but died as they could not answer the question of the Yaksha Devta who resided here. When the eldest son's Yudishtra's  turn came, he answered all questions correctly and with the result the dead brothers also came back to life.
