Dayara Bugyal Trek is an excellent choice for beginners, makes for a phantasmagorical photo-op, and an absolute delight for naturalists.
The pasture uplands of Uttarakhand’s alpine heights are focal points for many of our splendid treks in the region. These are the Bugyals—fecund grassy uplands secreted away in mountain laps where shepherds take their herds in summer days before the winter snow renders them fallow. Dayara is a relatively lesser-known Bugyal, accessible from Uttarkashi by just a short, crisp trek but it is one that pays off magnificent rewards.
