    About the Dayara Bugyal Trek:

    Amongst all the treks in Uttarakhand, Dayara Bugyal is considered to be the most breathtaking trek. The trek brings us to a highland meadow situated in the Uttarkashi district of Uttarakhand which stands tall at an elevation of 10,000-12,500ft.

    This lush green expanse of meadows serves as an excellent destination for skiing during winter and is spread over 28 sq km. This breathtaking location is nestled amidst towering snow-peaked mountains. While on this memorable Himalayan Dayara Bugyal trekking tour in India at Uttarakhand, catch sight of the lake of Barnala Tal strewn across the green alpine prairies– in whose reflection the peaks look even more beautiful. 

    The trek starts from the tiny hamlet of Barsu nestled on the Haridwar-Gangotri road which is 32 km from Uttarkashi. One can settle in any one of the rest-houses or GMVN houses in Barsu that overlook the stunning valley on one side and the snowy mountains on the other.

    The route of the Dayara Bugyal Trek trails through gorgeous Oak forests, clear water bodies and sprawling grasslands while offering views of specks of huts, grazing sheep all while overlooking the valley and high-rise mountains. Wildflowers also bloom around streams and brooks that run across the pastures.


    About the destination:

    The breathtaking alpine meadow of Dayara Bugyal reigns atop a staggering 12,000 ft., against a stunning canvas of lofty Himalayan neighbours like Bandarpoonch, Kala Nag, Shrikhand Mahadev, Srikanth peak and Gangotri peaks. The Dayara Bugyal trek is marked by a rich carpet of wildflowers, and dense forests of maple and oak fenced by misty valleys. The highland meadows invite skiers from over the country during winters, when the place receives heavy snowfall. The trail unveils expansive grasslands, alpine lakes and trickling streams that lull the senses with a sylvan symphony. Besides the splendour of the landscape that Dayara Bugyal offers, trekkers also get a rare glimpse into the fascinating cultures of a Himalayan village. As another highlight, trekkers get to witness the dynamic beauty of the rhododendron flowers that grace the trails of the trek.

    The Dayara Bugyal trek starts from the quaint little village of Barsu in the Uttarkashi district of Uttarakhand. Given its easy to moderate level, it also serves as an ideal pick for beginners. It is also not uncommon to see herds of cattle grazing in the sprawling grasslands, accompanied by shepherds. The lush green expanse snuggled in the laps of Himalayan giants is the perfect respite from the humdrum of life. It is a whisper of untamed wilderness to the hearts of trekkers, who flock here every year in search of tranquillity and peace. The wondrous grasslands of Dayara Bugyal are locked in a Himalayan embrace and make for an ideal long weekend trek. Those who wander into this world of untouched beauty leave with far more than what they seek.
