Dayara Bugyal Trek (Uttarkashi)

Dayara Bugyal is considered as one of the most spectacular meadows in India. The term Bugyal in the local dialect means high altitude pasture land. It is considered to be one of the most beautiful and breathtaking treks in Uttarakhand, because of the highland meadows. Those high peaks covered with very heavy snow in winters, and the feeling of being on the Dayara top is just fascinating and on the
height of 11,827 ft. It is paradise for mountain lovers because of its mesmerizing beauty.
The highest point on this trek is Bakaria top at 12,500 ft. Which we offer as a gift trek for our tourists. The Bugyals and the sky around with their ever changing hue can show you a new scenery every season of the year. During winter it also provides one of the best ski slopes in Uttrakhand. Although it is a very famous and adventurous trek with so many higher altitude peaks, which definitely catch the heart of visitors
