About Dayara Bugyal Trek

The pasture uplands of Uttarakhand’s alpine heights are focal points for many of our splendid treks in the region. These are the Bugyals—fecund grassy uplands secreted away in mountain laps where shepherds take their herds in summer days before the winter snow renders them fallow. Dayara is a relatively lesser known Bugyal, accessible from Uttarkashi by just a short, crisp trek but it is one that pays off magnificent rewards.

Dayara in the local tongue refers to a circular plot of land, reflecting the hoop shaped grassy turf of this Bugyal, margined by dark oak and maple woods and beyond the green reaches, a glowing snowline of the Bandarpoonch and other ranges. A rambling walk through the undulated pastures of Dayara will bring you out of the world frames of its green ecosystem, the whispering wilderness of the oak woods, and somewhere far away, a breathless peak view panorama gradually unveiling. Along the entire stretch, at different junctures, you can catch glimpses of the Gangotri set of peaks, Srikanth peak, Bandarpoonch, and Black Peak.

Another high point of the journey comes on the fourth day when we are ascending to 12, 100 ft. from our Dayara campsite to Dayara Top. A ridge walk takes you to convergences of many adjoining meadows including the Giddara Bugyal. You will also find a descent trail to Dodital- a fresh water lake which is the origin of Assi Ganga. The summer meadows are infused on this stretch with a spray of wildflowers, all yellow. On all of this paradisiacal effervescence, the snow thatched Bandarpoonch will cast an iridescent impression. The walk ambles down from here to Barsu, a pretty settlement memorable for its silkenly flowing buckwheat fields and poppy beds. Before reaching the village, we make a last stop at Barnala, a small crystal waterhole flanked by a temple of the Nag Devata.

Day 1: Dehradun to Natin Village

We will pick you up at 6:00 AM from the parking of Dehradun Railway Station for a 7-hour long journey to Natin. Natin, is a pleasant village famous as the base camp of Dayara Bugyal trek. It is around 38 km away from Uttarkashi. The village flourishes with lush greenery. Bhagirathi River flows with you throughout the way up to the village. The route to Raithal is like a pathway between the mountains.

You will get the first glimpse of the Gangotri range, Shrikanth peak from the Moryana top. Here you will halt for a small break if you wish to capture the splendid peaks. As you approach closer to Natin, the views of mountain peaks get bigger, Shrikanth peak is one of the prominent peaks from here. Network is available here. The last prominent market is at Uttarkashi and a smaller market at Bhatwari. You will spend the night in a guest house or get a taste of a village homestay.

Day 2: Natin to Gui

Start early in the morning with energized spirit to embark on the actual trek. The trail is a walk through the jungle. There are silver, gold oak trees all around.

The route to the campsite is well marked and the campsite at Gui always remains in line of sight. The trail is easy and ascends gradually. It will take around 4-5 hours to reach the next resting point. Make sure to carry 2 litres of water as there are no water sources on the way.

The campsite is surrounded by alpine trees, unlike mountains. You will spot quaint village huts near the campsite. The view from Gui is almost the same as from Raithal, with clear views of the Gangotri range and Shrikanth peak. Under the beautiful night sky, you can relax and re-energize yourself.

Day 3: Gui to Chilapada

Today is an easier day comparatively. The trail rises slowly as the forest clears and you reach the next camping site of Chelapada. It will be a small trek. You can find a flowing stream next to the camping site. Carrying one litre of water is enough for today. You might get some snow traces on the path. Hot lunch will be served at the campsite.

Bandarpoonch has a beautiful view throughout the Dayara Bugyal trek, but you will also encounter many other splendid peaks. After lunch or evening tea you can stroll around and explore the area.

Day 4: Chilapada to Dayara top and Trek to Nayata

Summit day is finally here. Today you will go all the way to the Dayara top and return to the campsite. It’s an easy to moderate trail. Carry enough water for the way as there is only one water source near the top. With the first few steps under the forest, the trail gradually opens up leading to vast meadows. Hereafter, you will find yourself trudging on the meadows blossomed with colours.

Walking on such beautiful terrain with stunning views of Bandarpoonch and other peaks, you won’t even know that you are finally closer to the top. You might also spot a sparsely filled water stream.

The final climb is steep but it is worth the physical strain because you will end up witnessing stunning views of the Dodital range. The trail then takes you to the Gidara pass that distinguishes ways to Pichkiya and Gidara Bugyal. Give yourself some time to savour in the serenity of the landscape, to return to the campsite thereafter. There’s packed lunch for the way. Spend the night at Nayata campsite.

Day 5: Nayata to Natin Village

The journey amidst the mountains of Dayara Bugyal come to an end today. Wake up early to get packed up to descend back to Raithal.

Throughout the trail, you can relive the fond moments from the ascent days. It seems as if the mountain peaks are calling you back. Natin is a lively village where children and villagers can be seen meandering around. Here, you will have a delicious hot lunch. Overnight stay will be in a guesthouse at Natin.

Day 6: Natin to Dehradun

Have a final cup of morning tea in Natin. Cherish the goodbyes to your fellow trekkers. After taking a memorable group picture, get into the cab that will ride you back to Dehradun at 6:30 AM. This will be a 7-hour long ride, from between the mountains, valleys and witht the Bhagirathi river that was also a guide to you throughout the trek.

Breakfast and lunch for the day are excluded. You will reach Dehradun by 3 to 4 PM, from here you can continue with the return journey as you might have planned. Make sure to take back loads of adventure-filled memories and a pledge to keep coming back to the mountains.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)

1 What kind of planning do we need to do prior to trek?

The area is colder at night and a little bit warmer on days. So, it's better to keep warm clothes and other essential materials with you. You can also do some exercises before the trek so as to make your body flexible.

2 Is it important to know about the local language to converse with localities?

As such, there is no requirement for this. Hindi is the official language in Uttarakhand so you can converse in Hindi. And also our team members will be there to help you in any such kind of situation.

Before you load up your backpack with trekking socks and Kendal mint cake, give some thought to the infrastructure on the route you plan to conquer. Some treks require total self-sufficiency, sleeping under canvas and purifying water as you go; other routes have refuges or rustic teahouses every step of the way. Here are some of the key considerations:

  • Travel light: every extra gram will weigh you down on the trails; if it isn't essential, leave it behind.
  • Respect your feet: boots offer more support, but all-terrain trainers are lighter and dry more quickly after a soaking.
  • Protect your knees: trekking poles can help control the knee-crushing descents that are a feature of pretty much every trek.
  • Climb slowly: Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) can kill, so ascend slowly and take rest days to acclimatize on any trek above 2,500m in elevation.
  • Heed the weather: when treks go wrong, it's normally because of the weather, so check the forecasts; if conditions look bad, stop somewhere safe and sit it out, rather than pushing on over the next pass.
  • Be prepared: don't launch straight from the sofa to the summit–warm up with gentler walks, hikes and runs to get your body used to the exertion.
  • Plan ahead: many trekking routes require a permit and advance booking for lodges and camp sites; for some routes, you need to book months ahead.
