Spread across 28 km, Dayara Bugyal is one of the highest as well as the largest meadow in India. This short and easy trail passes through thick and dense forests, with your path lined with towering oak and rhododendron trees. The forest opens up to vivid green grasslands during the summer, which are popular with sheep herders. In the spring it is sprinkled with bright colorful flowers, while in the winters it is covered under a blanket of fresh snow.
The peaks of Mount Bandarpoonch, Mount Kalanag and the various Gangotri peaks make for a panaromic backdrop bordering the gorgeous Dayara Bugyal.
