The only reason I can never say 'no' to the Dayara Bugyal trek is because of its scenic beauty. Short and easy, we completed within the allocated time of 5 days. Winter is the much preferred time as during this, summers are also good but then I won't say it will a wise decision. Overall, nice trek for beginners.

If you first hear about the height you gonna achieve in this trek, you might get a bit nervous. But honestly speaking, there is no so difficulties or dangers in this trek. It is a beautiful and amazing trek to take in Uttarakhand.

Overview

About the Destinations: 

Dayara Bugyal holds the prestigious position of being India’s most beautiful high altitude alpine meadows. And why not? Perched at an altitude of 12,000ft, this 28sq. km of open vastness creates a natural magic with each changing season. Myriad hues with every wind change comes with its unique attraction, making this one of the finest destinations to trek to in India.

From the Dayara Bugyal (‘bugyal’ means meadow in the regional language), one can enjoy stupendous sightings of the Himalayas. Apart from this, the other added attraction is a natural lake Barnala Tal, which is part of a tree lined meadow. Interestingly, this stretch transforms into some of the best skiing slopes during winter months. During other times, the lake’s water is a picturesque frame of reflections of the surrounding oak trees.

With a campsite at a height of 11,000ft, the Dayara Bugyal trek in Uttaranchal captures the minds and memories of every traveller who heads in that direction.

    First time I did this trek, it was around 2 years ago if I remember correctly. Even after 2 years, the trails are almost same, the feel was also same, the beauty and charm were also same. One of my favourite treks so far.
