About Dayara Bugyal 

Uttarakhand has no shortage of beautiful and adventurous treks. Situated in the Uttarkashi district of Uttarakhand, Dayara Bugyal is known to be one of the most beautiful yet diverse treks. This region offers a lush green view of the entire meadow during the summer or spring season, and the same verdant land turns into a white carpet of snow when winter arrives making it not less than any other winter paradise.

 

This trek is considered as the gateway for trekkers to the trekking world. The grassy vast lands are located away on mountain laps where the locals take their cattle and graze their herds in the summer season before the winter follows and leave them fallow for the next few months.

 

The trek route makes way through the dense pine forest and oak trees before ending on a vast land of meadow, offering a scenic mesmerizing view. The entire trail to the top is like a rollercoaster ride, you will encounter myriad adventures en route.

 

The gradual ascend till the Dayara top makes it a perfect beginner’s level trek and can even be done by a 7-8 years old child. However, in the winter, the same trek route gets a tad bit tougher and counts under easy to moderate level trek.

 

This lush green expanse of the meadow is a great place to ski during winters. The entire meadow and trees get covered with the snow blanket making it look like a snow carnival. The crushing of the fresh snow underneath your shoes and the frozen tree branches coupled with the chilled air tingling the nose leaves trekkers refreshed and energetic unceasingly.

 

Another handpick reason to plump for the winter trek is that it offers a  spectacular view of Mt. Bandarpoonch and  Black Peak which are elevated at 6,316 and 6,387 ft above sea level respectively.

Some Important Tips
  • Try to make your backpack as light as possible. Carry a few warm layers as the temperature falls during the night and feels cold enough. Although the temperature can be freezing cold during the winter season.

  • Carry Headlamp or Torch with you which will help you in moving around the campsite in the evening.

  • Carry water bottles and some protein bars along with you which will help you in hydrating your body from time to time and gain some lost energy along the way.

  • Do not wander off on your own without informing your guide or trek leader, as this can be very dangerous.

  • Carry proper trekking shoes because there are sections with rocks and boulders which can be very dangerous to walk on.

  • Cellular network connectivity is not that good in the valley so it is advised to make all important calls when you are about to start the trek,

  • Do not consume alcohol or any other intoxicants during the trek. Anybody found doing so would be terminated immediately.
