Devaria Tal is located in Rudraprayag district of Uttarakhand, just 14 km by road and about 3 km by foot from Ukhimath. Situated on the top of the mountain, this lake is surrounded by a forest of oaks, burans, which add to its beauty.

In the rainy and winter season, when the view around it is completely green or covered with a white sheet of snow, then the view of Deoria Tal looks even more beautiful. Just in front of this lake are the peaks of Chaukhamba, Gangotri, Neelkanth, and Kedarnath. When the reflection of which falls in the green water of the lake in winter, then that view is made on seeing.

In the coming time, a nature walk canopy is also being built in Baniyatauli of Chopta.
