    When my family had planned for a trip to Rishikesh I dropped out of the trip thinking this is all old people trip place, but then I surfed and read about the places that are close to this destination, the Dayara Bugyal trek, surya top popped up on the screen and I was super excited seeing the images, I just changed my plan and took up this trip with my family. I always loved trekking and this place was a very unique trekking trail that I had ever seen in my life. Watching the villages and the surroundings from such a height is a rare thing that I can never forget. I thank my team of organizers who helped us all the way throughout the trek.

    I and my sister had always planned for an adventurous trekking. When we heard about this trek we immediately took up this one and we are happy that we took such a one. Even though this trek was a very tough one, my sister helped me a lot on this trek. Our other co-trekkers were very socializing and so we enjoyed this trip as a gang. Food was good and the climate luckily turned out to be well. The budget friendly trek is what I am looking forward to take up in my near future.

    Taking up a trek to such a destination is not a bed of roses, but if you go out with your friends or age group you can surely enjoy the whole lot. And that's what I loved about this trek. It tells you exactly what nature is how beautifully the creator made this entire world. It completely changed my perception of live. Just loved the trek.

    I first felt that this trek reviews that I had read are a bit over rated but this trek proved me wrong. It was an amazing vacation. I never wanted to come back. The place made me fall in love with nature. And the good thing is that I'm going there again.

    The biggest plus point of this trek is the budget of the trek, I had a very small budget but this trek happened to fit into my pocket very easily. I am longing to go over again on such a trek in my near future.

    The trek to Dayara Bugyal with Surya top is an interesting and great trek. I wanted to chill out this summer and hence took up a trek to this destination during my vacation break. Enjoyed overall. I always wanted to try out my hand on a trekking to the Himalayas, and this seemed to be the perfect one.

    I had never been on a trekking before, but when my best friend suggested a trek to the Dayara Bugyal I was reluctant to agree to it. But then my sister had already been there and she suggested me to take up a chance and go around. I enjoyed the trek a lot. Thank you guys for making my first trekking experience so memorable.

    If you are a trekking lover, you have to take up a trek to the Surya top. Rishikesh is the starting point and so you can commute to this place very easily when you happen to visit North India. You can surely enjoy this trek if you go along as a gang.

    Trekking to Dayara Bugyal with Surya top was always in my mind ever since I heard my office colleague speak about its beauty and charisma. I took up this trek last week and I have to share that this trek is too great and majestic. I never can imagine such a trekking in my lifetime. I always remember reading the history of the Himalayas, but now that I have visited this place I have to admit that trekking over here will be something that no one should miss out.
