  • Trip introduction

    Dayara Bugyal is an all-season, perfect Himalayan trek with gorgeous forests, beautiful camping locations, quaint villages and thrilling climbs. This trek offers magnificent views of the Gangotri mountains range and pristine alpine meadows of Uttarakhand. You will be walking for long hours along the riveting trail of the mixed forests of maples, oak, pines and rhododendron trees.

    The beauty of Dayara Bugyal is the magical landscape transformation in every season - in summer, you will see yellow, white and violet flowers throughout the meadows, while in autumn, the meadows turn golden brown. In winter, the meadows and forests are carpeted with powdery snow, which also makes it one of the skiing destinations in Uttarakhand.

    The Dayara Bugyal trek is one of the best Himalayan treks for beginners to start with.

Depending on the weather and availability, you may get a chance to experience a homestay.
