Dayra Bugyal Trek
The pasture areas of Uttarakhand’s pasture heights are the focal point of many of our spectacular treks. These are Bugyalas – grasslands spread secretly in mountainous meadows, where shepherds take their flocks on summer days before winter snow falls.

Dayara Bugyal trek is considered one of the most breathtaking highland meadows. In local lingo, Bugyal means pasture land at high altitude.
Located in Uttarkashi district of Uttarakhand, it is situated at an altitude of more than 10,000 feet.
The Dayara Bugyal trek passes through a dense forest of maple and oak forest and opens onto the lush green expanse of the Alpine meadows of Dayara Bugyal. December to March is the best time to trek as the trails glow with snow.
Dayara Bugyal trek is a great option for beginners due to easy trails. All the camps are beautiful and scenic.
