Dayara Bugyal Trek

Trips

This moderate trek starts from the picturesque village of Barsu in Uttarkashi. Barsu serves as the base for the Dayara Bugyal trek along with offering grand views of some 6000m plus peaks like John Lee (6618m), Srikanth (6133m) as well as Draupadi Ka Danda I & II (5643m & 5770m).

A little into the trek you can also spot the Gangotri Massif (I, II & III). Dayara Bugyal has been popularly called the most beautiful meadow in India giving stiff competition to Bedni Bugyal. For thousands of years Gujjars have come to these meadows to graze their cattle and bask in the magnificence of such Beauty. Nestled between great Himalayan peaks like Bandarpunch (6316m) & White Peak (6102m) this is perhaps one of the most beautiful meadows to trek to in India.
