  • Trip introduction

    Book this 6-day trek to Dayara Bugyal and spend a week in the beautiful mountains of Uttarakhand, trekking through virgin forests of oak and pine trees. This short and easy trek takes you through a dense, alpine jungle, peppered with colourful wildflowers, chirping birds and charming river streams. En route, the trail offers vantage points with breathtaking views of higher peaks in the Himalayas, such as the 20,000 feet tall Mt. Bandarpoonch. As you approach the bugyal, sleeping in tents pitched at the some of the most picture perfect campsites, the forest begins to clears away, opening up views of rolling grasslands and pristine meadows.

    Destination

    Dayara Bugyal, literally meaning the 'high-altitude meadow', is a sloped, alpine pasture land at an elevation of 11,180 feet in Uttarakhand. Popularly called as the most beautiful meadow in the country, Dayara Bugyal is often frequented by the local Gujjar natives who bring their cattle to graze over the lush green grass of the bugyal. During the winter, the meadows are layered with inches of snow, making for a great winter trek in the fresh, white snow. During the summer, the meadows come alive with an explosion of greenery with thickets of shrubs and bushes over the grass.

    Destination highlights

    • Spend a week in nature on this 6-day trek to Dayara Bugyal.
    • Trek through dense, alpine forests every day.
    • Get breathtaking views of mountain peaks in the Himalayas.
    • Spend the night in tents at scenic campsites.
