About Dayara Bugyal Trek

The Dayara Bugyal trek is considered to be one of the most beautiful treks in Uttarakhand with visitors describing their experience as nothing short of a fairy tale. This easy trek takes you up to one of India’s most beautiful high-altitude meadows, surrounded by towering Himalayan peaks, and offers you the chance to camp in scenic locations at every stop. The trek is recommended for everyone i.e families with children, nature lovers and adventurers alike. The Dayara Bugyal trek begins at Barsu and takes you through old oak and pine forests, up to an altitude of more than 10,000 feet above sea level. You’ll visit the famous alpine lake near Barnala Bugyal, and you’ll see famous peaks like Kala Nag, Bandar Poonch, the Gangotri Massif I and II, among others.

Endless views of green meadows with soft sunlight falling on the snow-clad Himalayan peaks is just one of the highlights of the Dayara Bugyal trek. The meadows are filled with lush green grass, shepherds lead their flocks of woolly sheep, mountain wildflowers abound, and all this is under overwhelmingly clear blue skies. You will pass fragrant forests with sunlight filtering in through the maple leaves and you’ll want to lie down right there and never leave. You can pick walnuts off the trees, discover clear lakes strewn across the mountains and in whose reflection the surrounding mountain peaks look even more beautiful and then spend some time reading a book near one of the gushing brooks. As night falls, the porters set up camp and light bonfires for you and where you can warm your weary bones and marvel at how beautiful a few days in the mountains can be. The Dayara Bugyal trek is one of the most rewarding adventures you can go on.

Dayara Bugyal weather

The best season to visit is April to May but the Dayara Bugyal trek can be undertaken all year long except during the monsoon. It is popular in winter as well, as the slopes are covered with a blanket of snow, turning the meadows into a paradise for snow treks and skiing.

Dayara Bugyal temperatures

In summer the days are warm and sunny and the meadows are at their greenest. In December to March the day time temperatures range from 11C to 4C and at night from -2C to -8C.
