Dayara Bugyal Trek , popularly known as “beginner’s trek” is short and mesmerizing. The route trails through the oak and pine forests , Clear water streams , grasslands(Bugyals) of Barnala and Dayara. The breathtaking views of the snow covered distant high rise mountains almost never go out of sight.
Dayara Bugyal is a high altitude meadow situated in Uttarkashi District (Uttrakhand) at an elevation of 11,181 ft. The word Bugyal itself means a high altitude meadow or grassland. These are known as “Nature’s Own Gardens”. The trek can be easily done in 3-4 days ( Dehradun-Dayara-Dehradun) , making it the best Trek for extended Weekends.
The path to Dayara is well laid thus rendering the use of guide minimal. Although he will reduce your fear of encountering wild buffaloes/animals ( I still doubt what he can physically do to protect you in extreme cases ). He will help you in putting up the tents, guiding you about the names of distant visible peaks, narrating you his adventurous stories ,talking to locals in their language in case of any problem ,which water source to use and which not. If you are lucky he may even help you in cooking.Although You should get yourself a cook in case you don’t want to self-cook and a porter if you don’t want to carry luggage yourself.
