Why Dayara Bugyal Is A Must Do Trek

Dayara Bugyal, located in the Indian state of Uttarakhand, is a stunning high-altitude meadow known for its scenic beauty and pristine surroundings. While it is a popular destination for trekking in India during the warmer months, Dayara Bugyal Winter Trek offers a unique and enchanting experience for adventure enthusiasts seeking to explore this region in the snowy season.

 

The trek starts from a village called Natin, which is easily accessible from Uttarkashi. The trek begins at an altitude of approximately 7,400 feet in Barsu and ascends to Dayara Bugyal, which stands at around 12,100 feet above sea level.  The Dayara Bugyal Winter Trek is considered a moderate trek, making it suitable for both beginners and experienced trekkers.

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
    • No water sources, carry 2 liters of water
    • 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 an 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

 

width=667

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 a 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 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 till you reach the base.

 

width=667

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.

In the unlikely event that TTH cancels a trek prior to the scheduled departure date:

While it is extremely rare for TTH to cancel a trek, we understand that unforeseen circumstances or natural disasters may occasionally require us to do so before the scheduled departure. These circumstances could include continuous rain or snow, thunderstorms, snowstorms, landslides, floods, earthquakes, or any other natural calamity that poses a risk to the safety of our trekkers. Additionally, unforeseeable events such as local riots, curfews, pandemics, lockdowns, government orders, or any similar situations that compromise the safety of the trekking experience may also necessitate a cancellation.

In the event of such a cancellation, TTH will provide you with a voucher equivalent to the amount you paid for the trek. This voucher can be redeemed for any of our treks within the next year, allowing you to still enjoy an adventure with us at a later date.

Note

  • The issuance of a voucher is not applicable in situations where you are required to descend from the trek for any reason. The trek leader may make the decision to send you down from the trek due to factors such as insufficient fitness level, symptoms of Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS), high blood pressure, exceeding the designated turn-around-time, health concerns, or if you are found smoking, drinking, or violating the rules set for the trek. In such cases, the provision of a voucher does not apply.

 

In the rare event that TTH shifts a trek:

We would like to emphasize that weather conditions in high-altitude areas are highly unpredictable and can undergo sudden changes at any time, irrespective of the day. Additionally, circumstances beyond our control, such as natural disasters, political unrest, pandemics, and lockdowns, may impact the feasibility of conducting a trek. In cases where we are unable to proceed with an event due to such circumstances that are beyond our direct control, we will make every effort to provide you with an alternative trek that is safer and more suitable.

In such situations, we will issue a voucher to offset the cost difference between the originally scheduled trek and the alternative trek. This voucher can be redeemed at any time within one year from the date of issue. Please note that a refund fee or reimbursement of the cost difference is not applicable in these cases.

Note:

  • Change of trek batch is dependent on the availability of seats in the batch
  • In case of transferring a trek to a friend, he/she should satisfy all the mandatory requirements put forward by TTH
  • TTH holds the right to change/cancel the policies, without prior notice

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.
