Deoban means thick Deodhar woodland, so the path is no doubt densely forested with Deodhar trees. In addition, due to the natural beauty of the Uttarakhand mountains, a blend of Pine and Oak trees can be found. The camping areas are surrounded by beautiful meadows. Surprisingly, the trail is snow-covered in the winter. As a result, it’s an exciting winter hike. It is home to a variety of bird species, including babblers, thrushers, and others, thanks to the dense forest cover.
