The parts of Uttarakhand we generally hear about are places like Rishikesh, Badrinath, Kedarnath, Nainital and Jim Corbett. But Uttarakhand is also a home to several hidden treasures. One such region that caught our attention lately was the Rudraprayag district in Uttarakhand.
This district nestles some of the most pristine valleys and picturesque treks in the Himalayan region. Most of the destinations in this region is a 14-15 hours journey from the capital city of Delhi. This time we decided to experience the untouched natural beauty of this region. We carried a Panasonic Lumix G85 camera with us – a camera that good help us shoot the beautiful landscapes as well as create amazing 4k videos and time lapses.
Here are a few of the best landscapes we shot during this trip and how we captured it.
Deorial Tal Trek & The Lake
Deoria Tal is one of the high altitude lakes located in Uttarakhand. This lake is reachable by a 2.3 km trek from Sari Village – 55 km from the city of Rudraprayag. The trek route to this lake gave us some of the most beautiful frames of the mountains around this region. We used the Intelligent auto feature of the Panasonic Lumix G85 to capture these images. It produced good results adjusting the camera settings to capture the landscape quite well.

Deoria Tal lake is surrounded by beautiful and lush green meadows. We used the time lapse feature of our Lumix to create a 4k video of this landscape. We clicked around 300 images in a span of 15-20 minutes which the camera compiled for this video.
