Dayara Bugyal Trek

Raithal, Uttarkhand




6 days



Untouched by beautiful plains and a plain covered with a sheet of velvety green grass,  it is Dayara Bugyal situated in the Uttarkashi of Uttarakhand. Dayara Bugyal is a perfect trek for long weekends and is an ideal start for amateurs/beginners in trekking. It is one of the most beautiful meadows in the Garhwal Himalayas overlooking the Gangotri Ranges, Draupadi ka Danda, Srikantha, and Jaonli Peak. This is an easy trek that can be done throughout the year but May to September is the best time to do this trek.

According to history, Kunti Mata used to cultivate paddy in Bugyal & hence the place is called by the name “Kunti Ki Seri”. There is a Bakriya top place where there is a Vakratunda cave where Lord Ganesha’s neck was cut by Lord Shiva in history.

Dayara Bugyal starts from 2600 meters above sea level and goes up to 3500 meters in height. This Bugyal is also known as the paradise of cattle ranchers and a special and unique festival is celebrated by them every year. The butter festival, locally known as the ‘Anduri festival’ is celebrated on the occasion of Sankranti. During the festival, villagers play Holi with butter and buttermilk.
