• Trek to Dayara Bugyal

    Considered as one of the most scenic treks in Uttarakhand, this trek takes you to the lush green meadows of Dayara Bugyal. As you make your way up, you'll see beautiful valleys dotted with wildflowers, sparkling streams running past, and woolly sheep grazing in grassy highlands. Plus, being a high altitude meadow, it also gives you a chance to camp in a campsite that is surrounded by some of the most dazzling snow-capped peaks! The Dayara Bugyal trek is an easy one, and is suitable for beginners.


    Found at an altitude of 10,000 feet, Dayara Bugyal is a high altitude meadow located in the Himalayan region of Uttarakhand. Easily accessible from Haridwar, the journey to this beautiful meadow entails driving to the Barsu Village via Rishikesh. It’s from Barsu Village that your real trekking experience begins, covering scenic locations such as Barnala Lake and crossing oak and rhododendron tree forests. From Dayara Bugyal, your adventure moves further up to the Bakaria Top that offers you an interrupted view of not only the surrounding Gangotri Ranges, but also the Bandarpoonch Peak!
