Why Dayara Bugyal Is A Must Do Trek

The pasture lands 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 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 unveiled. 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 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 decent trail to Dodital- a freshwater lake that 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 the last stop at Barnala, a small crystal waterhole flanked by a temple of the Nag Devata.

Dayara Bugyal Trek is an excellent choice for beginners, makes for a phantasmagorical photo-op, and is an absolute delight for naturalists.

About The Trek

Fresh green grass in summers and snow-covered vast meadows in winters, Dayara Bugyal presents resplendent beauty across all seasons. With gorgeous mountain views and glistening water bodies strewn across the trail, Dayara Bugyal makes for one of the most enchanting Himalayan treks.

The journey commences at Dehradun Railway station, where we will pick you up and from there we will head to the base village of Natin. The beautiful Bhagirathi River follows us along the way. We will stay the night at Natin and the following day our actual trekking begins.

The next day we will head from Natin to the Gui campsite. It is an easy trail that ascends gradually and occasionally you may spot bursts of vibrancy in the forests with the Rhododendrons in bloom during Spring and Summer. Gangotri and Shrikanth Peak are prominently visible from the Gui campsite. Resting the night at Gui, we will head towards Chilpada the next day. It is a very easy walk to Chilpada and you will walk through forested trails for the most part. Bandarpoonch is vividly visible from the campsite. We will have hot lunch at Chilpada and in the evening you will have enough time to stroll around the campsite.

From Chilpada, the next day we will summit Dayara Top, spend some time at the summit, and descend to Nayata campsite. From the summit, you can see views of Bandarpoonch and the Dodital Range. Nayata is a beautiful campsite surrounded by Maple and Rhododendron trees. The next day we will descend from Nayata to Natin and rest the night at Natin, we will drive back to Dehradun the next day ending the wonderful Dayara Bugyal trip.

What Can You Expect At The Trek

During summers, from April, the snow starts melting in Dayara Bugyal, leading way to fresh and soft grass on the meadows. Yellow flowers line the meadows in the summer, which adds to the beauty of the trail and you will also spot Rhododendron covers here and there. If greenery is what you want, you should do the trek in summer. The temperature in Spring remains between 15° to 20° in the daytime and at night, it is around 1° to 5° while in summer the temperature can go as high as 25° in the daytime summer and remains between 7° to 10° at night.

If you want to experience snow, then Dayara Bugyal in winter is a great choice. The landscape is completely different in winters than in summers. The powdery snow over the tail and on the trees gives a very Christmasy feel. The temperature is below zero degrees at this time of the year, even in the base camps. During the daytime, if the sun is out the temperature can get a little high between 8° to 12°C

In autumn, the skies are the clearest and it is a great time to visit the trek for mountain views. The Bandarpoonch massif and the Gangotri Ranges are clearly visible when you are in the meadows in autumn. Daytime temperature in autumn remains between 8° to 12° while the nighttime temperature in higher camps goes 2°-3°c below zero

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 the 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. Uttarkashi is the largest town on the route, and from here you will head to  Bhatwari. The closer you get to the base camp, the more brilliant views of the mountains unfold in front of you.

 

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. Mobile 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. In the evening, you will have a quick introduction and briefing session with the trek leaders and guides and you will be given a schedule of the upcoming trekking days and other related information. Dinner and stay in the homestay.

Day 2 : Natin to Gui
    • Altitude (Gui): 2,900 m/ 9,500 ft
    • Trek Distance: 3.5 km | Duration: 4 to 5 hrs
    • Altitude Gain: 650 m/ 2,100 ft
    • Easy trail. Gradual easy ascend
    • Hot lunch at the campsite.
    • A well-marked trail to the campsite

    • The same view as Natin, village huts around, campsite surrounded by forests of Silver and Golden Oak trees bloomed with Rhododendron.
    • Stay on meadows in tents ( 2 people in one tent)

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 and 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 liters of water as there are no water sources on the way. The mountain views become more and more prominent as you gain altitude while trekking towards Gui. The trail is mostly through forested areas that become denser as you travel towards Gui. It is mostly maple and Oak trees and occasionally Rhododendrons that bring more vibrancy to the forests.

 

The campsite is surrounded by alpine trees, unlike mountains. You will spot quaint village huts near the campsite. The village huts are used by the locals to shelter their cattle in the summer months. At some distance, you will also spot an Igloo-shaped forest hut. There’s also a small lake called ‘Barnala Tal’ nearby. The view from Gui is almost the same as from Raithal, with clear views of the Gangotri range and Shrikanth peak. Take short acclimatization walks around the campsite to help your body adjust to the higher altitudes. Under the beautiful night sky, you can relax and re-energize yourself.

Day 3 : Gui to Chilapada
    • Altitude (Chilpada): 3,000 m/ 9,800 ft
    • Trek Distance: 3 km | Duration: 2 hrs
    • Altitude Gain: 100 m/ 300 ft
    • Easy trail, gradual walk, easiest day of the trek
    • Hot lunch at the campsite
    • One liter of water is enough
    • Stay in tents

Today is an easier day comparatively. The trail rises slowly as the forest clears and you reach the next camping site of Chilpada. It will be a small trek. The trail follows out of the Gui campsite and onwards towards Dayara. As you climb out of Gui campsite, the mountains on the other side that were hidden come closer into view. You can find a flowing stream next to the camping site. Carrying one liter of water is enough for today. You might get some snow traces on the path.  Along the treks, you will also spot 5 6 Chania huts where the shepherds shelter their cattle in the summer months. The Gui Thatch offers beautiful views of Shrikanth peak, and Gangotri I, II, and III peaks. You will also spot the Jaonli peak as well as the top of Bandarpoonch. From Gui Thatch it is a relaxed walk of about half a kilometer, allowing you to catch your breath. Soak in the charms of a Himalayan forest in this leisurely walk. As the forest comes to an end, you are climbing further uphill and you will have to cross a couple of streams, which may or may not be flowing depending on the season. Hot lunch will be served at the campsite. After half an hour of crossing the stream, you will arrive at the Chilpada campsite. The campsite is a small opening in the meadows.

 

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 around the campsite.

Day 4 : Chilpada To Dayara Top And Trek To Nayata
    • Altitude (Dayara Top): 3,700 m/ 12,100 ft | (Nayata): 2,800 m/ 9,200 ft
    • Trek Distance: Chilpada - Dayara Top: 5 km | Duration: 5-6 hr | Dayara Top - Nayta: 6 km | Duration: 3-4 hr
    • Easy to moderate trail
    • Packed lunch on the way
    • Carry enough water, only one water source near the top
    • Massive views of many peaks and Dodital Range from top
    • Stay in tent

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. Chilpada is quite close to the Dayar Meadows, which gives almost the entire day to explore the meadows. As you enter the meadows, you will spot some Chania huts again on the edge of the meadow. In summer, the Dyara Meadows serve as pasturelands, and the shepherds shelter their cattle and livestock in these huts.

 

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. Miles and miles of rolling meadows stretch in every direction. Give yourself some time to savor in the serenity of the landscape, to return to the campsite thereafter. If you are doing the trek in the early season, of late spring or summer, you will see lines of violet and yellow wildflowers adorning the meadow. There’s packed lunch on the way.  We will descend all the way to Nayata campsite. The Nayata campsite is surrounded beautifully by Maple and Rhododendron trees. Spend the night at Nayata campsite.

Day 5 : Nayata to Natin Village
    • Altitude (Natoin Village): 2,250 m/ 7,400 ft
    • Distance: 5 km | Duration: 3 hrs
    • Altitude loss: 550 m/ 1,800 ft
    • Easy descend all the way
    • Hot lunch at Natin
    • Stay in guesthouse

The journey amidst the mountains of Dayara Bugyal comes to an end today. Wake up early to get packed up to descend back to Natin. It is a 5 km distance from Nayata to Natin and takes about 3 hrs. From the Nayata campsite follow the main trail to Dayara that you came in yesterday, the trail is canopied by a dense forest cover, so it will be a little cool in this part. Today is all about descending down and the descent is also fairly easy. About an hour into the trek you can see Natin village as well as Raithal from a distance. Continue on till you reach the base.

 

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. The overnight stay will be in a guesthouse at Natin.

If by a rare consequence TTH calls off/cancels a trek:

At TTH, we almost never call off or cancel our treks. But in the rare event that we do call off or cancel a trek due to any unforeseen circumstances or natural catastrophes like continuous rain or snow, thunderstorms, snowstorms, landslides, floods, earthquakes, or any other natural calamity that prevents us from carrying out a trek in a safe manner, unforeseeable circumstances like local riots, curfews, pandemics, lockdowns, government orders, or any such situations that prevents a safe trekking experience, TTH will issue a voucher summing up to the same amount as your trek fee. The voucher can be redeemed on any of the treks over a period of the next year.

 

Note

  • If the entirety of your group fails to reach or cross the pickup point, or abandons the trek, due to any unforeseen circumstances like snowfall or heavy rainfall, landslide, and such, in such a case the voucher will not be issued. You can, however, choose to repeat the trek with us.

 

  • The voucher is also not issued if for any reason you have to come down from the trek. The trek leader may send you down from the trek, owing to reasons like lack of fitness, AMS, blood pressure, turn-around-time, health issues, or if you are found smoking/ drinking, or breaking the rules of the trek. Vouchers are issued only when the whole trek is cancelled or called off on behalf of TTH.

As we mention always, weather conditions at high altitudes are extremely unpredictable and can change at any time of any day. Also, situations like natural calamities or political unrest, pandemics and lockdowns, etc are out of our control and if an event cannot run under any such circumstances that we do not directly have control over then we will try to give you an alternative trek, which means your trek will be shifted from one trek to another, which will be safer and more favourable.

When it gets really cold can I consume alcohol?

No. High altitude trekking is all about your body's ability to process oxygen. The better your body is able to do it, the lesser are your problems that usually affect trekkers in the high altitudes. On a high altitude trek you do not want to take any chances. Due to the low atmospheric pressure the oxygen you get out of each breath is less (at 15,000 feet, it is 60%). A smoker's lung has already been disabled significantly by years of smoking. The first thing you notice is shortness of breath. The shortness of breath results in carbon dioxide build-up in your body. This also leads to an increase in blood pressure as the heart struggles to supply oxygen to your other body parts. Chance of AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness) is extremely high in smokers. For this reason any substance like cigarette or alcohol that decreases breathing is to be avoided at high altitudes.
