We reached Ukhimath in the morning around 9:00am. Had breakfast in a small shack called Rao dhaba selling amazing bread pakodas while my nervousness of what if he says no now kept increasing. We were all the more excited to start our trek from sari village and found sharing trucks to get into for a ride to sari. The driver took 60/- for both of us and dropped right in front of a homely dhabba. We sat there for a while and had amazing chai for 10/-. Our stomach was still growling so we decided to have some food which was freshly prepared and could be customized according to our taste. The dal chawal and aloo (potato) sabzi were delicious.
We started trekking from sari village to deoriatal also called Dev dar tal. The journey was unforgettable, both of us trekked singing songs together and taking breaks in picture perfect views talking about deep stuff which couldn't happen without the clouds moving right in front of us. I could feel our bond get stronger and stronger as we climbed up. On our way we picked up the tent and the sleeping bags from a dhabba just 15mins before we reach deoria tal. It took us only 4 hours to reach the top and what a view 😍. We paid the forest office permission charge of 200/- for a night.
