Dayara Bugyal Trek - Overview

Dayara Bugyal, in spite of its exquisite beauty, is one of the lesser-known treks in India. Bugyal, a Hindi word, refers to the alpine meadows that are at a high altitude of about 12,000 feet. Dayara Bugyal is a short trek of 22 Kms that begins from Rithal as a base camp which is located about 42 km from Uttarkashi.

It is a beautiful village with greenery everywhere you look. The difficulty level of Dayara Bugyal trek is easy to moderate and this makes it a great choice for beginners. On your way to Dyara Bugyal Top, you will be able to catch glimpses of beautiful meadows, views of the Gangotri, Bandarpooch & Black Peak. You will also find a trail that leads to Dodiatal which is a freshwater lake and the origin of the Assi Ganga river.

The highest point of the trek comes at the Dyara Bugyal top which is at a height of 12,100 feet. During the summers the beauty of the green meadows, grassy turfs & snow-clad peaks in a distance makes up for a mesmerizing sight.
