Dayara Bugyal Trek

Dayara Bugyal

A "Bugyal" in local garhwali language means "meadow". Dayara Bugyal is one of the largest high altitude meadows in Garhwal region of Uttarakhand. It also serves as a great Alpine and Nordic Skiing destination because of its large slopes at Dayara Bugyal.

You walk through a number of lush green meadows. You will also get to see some of the most high range peaks of Uttarakhand including, Black Peak (Kalanag), Bandarpoonch, Srikanth, Jaonli, Gangotri Massif (I, II,III) and Draupadi ka danda on this trek. Dayara Bugyal is not so commercial so far but it is stunningly beautiful. Offering lush green pastures and a breathtaking green ecosystem in summers, it turns into a complete sheet of white in the winter months.

With a duration of 5-6 days, Dayara Bugyal Trek is a great choice for beginners. Like Kedarkantha, Brahmatal, Valley of Flowers, Dayara Bugyal is also one of the most scenic treks that Uttarakhand offers.
