Trek To Dayara Bugyals & Dodital  
The trek to Dayara Bugyals is one of the lesser known & most spectacular treks of the Gangotri Region. In local dialect, Bugyal means 'high altitude meadow'. Dayara Bugyal is to Uttaranchal what Khajjiar (Dalhousie) is to Himachal Pradesh. Perched near Bhatwari on the Uttarkashi-Gangotri (27 kms. from Uttarkashi) highway, Dayara Bugyal is an unspoilt wonder. During winters it provides excellent ski-ing slopes, over an area of 28 sq. kms. On this trek, you will traverse this great Himalayan range and appreciate the sheer geographic diversity – from the verdant, forested valleys to the flowered meadows (thatch) carpeted with wildflowers. Combine this with an interest in the variety of birds, wildlife, forest and wildflowers and an opportunity to view the splendid snow-capped peaks.... and you have all the ingredients for a highly rewarding trekking holiday. This trek is suitable even for those who want to take a leisurely walk and are not particularly interested in an arduous trek.
