Dayara Bugyal, often regarded as India’s most scenic bugyal (high-altitude meadow), offers an 11 km beginner trek from Raithal village. The trail weaves through enchanting oak, deodar, pine, and rhododendron trees. As you ascend to the meadow at 3,408 m, the breathtaking Himalayan panorama unfolds, revealing peaks like Bandarpoonch, Black Peak, Srikanth, Jaonli, and Draupadika Danda. Trekkers find shelter in tents and local chaani huts, and water is easily accessible from streams and creeks. While winter blankets it in snow, making it a prime destination for Nordic and Alpine skiing enthusiasts. Given the fragile nature of bugyal ecosystems, it’s vital to travel responsibly to maintain a harmonious balance between ecology and the environment.

  • Witness the mesmerizing views of lush green Dayara meadows studded with colorful flowers.
  • Entrail through the thick oak forests and witness the postcard like quaint barsu village.
  • Witness the kaleidoscopic views of Srikanth Peak, Bandarpoonch and Kalanag on the left to Draupadi ka Danda on the right.

  • The meadow encompasses the stunning Barnala Tal, a pristine high-altitude lake, and, in one corner of the lake, stands the sacred Nag Devta Temple. We conclude the day tents for an overnight stay.

  • The trek commences with a morning walk through a forested trail. As we climb higher, we encounter shepherd huts, locally referred to as “chani.”
  • Continuing along the path, we are treated to a panoramic view of snow-capped Himalayan peaks. These majestic mountains, including Srikanth, Gangotri, Draupadi ka Danda, Jaonli, Bandarpunch, and Swargarohini, grace the meadows with their presence.
  • The scenery transforms with the changing seasons. In summer, lush green grass and vibrant flowers adorn the trail, while in winter, a thick blanket of snow covers the path. Explore and savor the breathtaking views at the peak of Dayara.
  • We then begin our descent towards Barnala Tal, where we will set up our campsite for the night.

  • The trek begins in the morning with our descent from Barana Tal to the village of Barsu. We thoroughly enjoy and cherish the memories created during the day.
