Dayara Bugyal Trek – Himalaya Shelter

The Dayara Bugyal Trek is a mesmerizing journey into the heart of the Uttarkashi district of Uttarakhand, India, organized by Himalaya Shelter. This trek is popular among trekkers and nature enthusiasts, offering breathtaking views of the surrounding Himalayan peaks. Dayara Bugyal, translating to “high altitude meadow”, is one of the most beautiful alpine meadows in India. The trek starts from either Raithal or Barsu and can be done in a loop, returning to the same base camp. Another unique option is to start the trek from Raithal and end the trek at Barsu. The trek distance is 20 KM, and the trek altitude is 12,447 Feet. The trek duration is 4 days. The trek passes through amazing Oak forests and offers clear views of the Gangotri range. Peaks such as Srikantha (6,133 m), Jaonli (6,632 m), and Draupadi ka Danda are visible. During the winter months, from December end to early March, the lush green meadows turn into a sprawling snow ground, ideal for skiing or snowboarding. The Dayara Bugyal Trek difficulty level is considered to be easy. A 10-year-old can also complete this trek without facing any problems. The Dayara Bugyal Trek is a great alternative to the crowded Kedarkantha trek in peak winters when trekkers in huge numbers visit Kedarkantha. The trek will have ample snow and rhododendrons along with pine trees offering great contrasting views.
