Detailed Dayara Bugyal Trek Overview

Bugyals are alpine pasture lands, or meadows, in higher elevation and they are known as Nature’s own gardens. 

Trek to the magnificent Dayara Bugyal and see this wonder for yourself. During winter Dayara Bugyal is an ideal place for snow sports like Skiing and Snowboarding. In winter the entire valley will be covered in a blanket of snow and a lush green meadow will welcome you during other times. The trail we follow sometime passes through patches of beautiful oak forests. It offers a clear view of the Gangotri range. The peaks of Draupadi ka Danda, Srikanth and Deonli will reveal before you. This trek gives you the opportunity to visit one of the best bugyals in Uttarakhand. Don’t pass it at any cost.
