Dayara Bugyal Trek | Trekking towards the Himalayas

The Dayara Bugyal Trek is a captivating journey offered by Himalaya Shelter, located in the serene Garhwal Himalayas in Uttarakhand, India. This trek is known for its scenic beauty and the undulating slopes of Dayara Bugyal, a vast meadow. The trek starts either from Raithal or Barsu and is often done in a loop, returning to the same base camp. An alternative option is to start the trek from Raithal and end at Barsu. The trek passes through beautiful Oak forests and offers excellent views of the snow-clad peaks. Peaks such as Srikantha (6,133 m), Jaonli (6,632 m), and Draupadi ka Danda are visible. Dayara Bugyal is a meadow trek that can be done in either 3 days or 5 days, depending on the route that you follow. The total trek distance is around 20 km. The Dayara meadows are known for their beauty and the lush green meadows turn into a sprawling snow ground during the winter months, making it ideal for skiing or snowboarding. This is usually possible from the end of December to early March. The Dayara Bugyal Trek difficulty level is considered to be easy. A 10-year-old can also complete this trek without facing any problems. While descending from Dayara towards Barsu, we come across Barnala Meadows with Barnala Tal, a small lake with beautiful views of snow-capped peaks in the background.
