• Trip introduction

    This scenic 6-day trek to Dayara Bugyal offers you a wide range of experiences including serene campsites, lush trails, astounding mountain views as well as some insight into the local culture. The trek to Dayara Bugyal is very easy trek but has big payoffs in terms of mountain views. You'll get to explore rolling Himalayan meadows with iconic peaks towering over you, and hang out with local shepherds as they graze their flocks on the sweet grass here.

    The Dayara Bugyal trek is a relatively easy route, with just a few steep ascents. It's ideal for first-timers, families, and seasoned trekkers alike.


    The Dayara meadow is one of the most beautiful meadows in the Himalayas, and this trek takes you right into the midst of it. The trek to the meadow itself is very rewarding, with stunning views of peaks like Bandarpoonch, Srikant, and Kala Nag.

    You'll be camping at gorgeous spots, with views of craggy peaks and pine forests all around. Depending on the weather and availability, you might even have a chance to experience a homestay. These are usually memorable evenings, with a friendly local family opening their home to welcome you.

      Very well organised. Ours was a last minute request but they were very helpful in arranging it seamlessly. The entire trek was very smooth. What was promised was delivered. The food could have been better but I am not complaining. On the whole a great experience.

      The coordinators are extremely helpful. They go to extra lengths for helping you in figuring out where do you want to go and will be there with you at every step whenever you need them. Amazing service, I wanted to book a last minute ticket, I didn't think I'd get any good treks, but they sorted me out. Highly recommended.

      'The Great next is a great platform to discover, explore and book some of the best trails and treks nature has to offer! Although our trek group was managed by the amazing 'Renok adventures' , it was the great next that put us through to them. Thank you !'

      TGN has a very sophisticated and concise web page along with many optional details and information. This is one of the few sites that provides information about the operator. All the operators they recommend are safe, well-trained and reliable. They are easily accessible and offer reasonable deals. I've booked a trekking and river rafting trip with them already, and it was a very good experience. I'll always choose The Great Next to plan my adventure trips.
