Amongst all the treks in Uttarakhand, Dayara Bugyal is considered to be the most breathtaking. The trek brings us to a highland meadow situated in Uttarakhand. This breathtaking location is nestled amidst towering snow-peaked mountains.
Many have described this trek to be like a fairy-tale and the untouched beauty of this region is a proof. The trek starts from Barsu located on the Haridwar–Gangothri road which is 32 kms from Uttarkashi.
The route of the Dayara Bugyal Trek trails through gorgeous Oak forests, clear water bodies, grazing sheep all while overlooking the valley and high-rise mountains.
On this expedition, climb up to the highest point on the trek – Bakaria Top (12000 ft); the ascent to it is quite steep and difficult. Wildflowers also bloom around streams and brooks that run across the pastures.
The mighty Himalayas have a unique charm about them and their beauty is simply unmatched. Besides snow-clad mountains, the region is famous for its scenic meadows, which over the years have become popular trekking routes and one such is the Dayara Bugyal trek.
