Bugyal in the local mountain dialect means “High Altitude Meadow or grassland”. Dayara Bugyal trek is one of the most beautiful treks in Uttarakhand, situated at an elevation ranging from 10,000 – 12,500 ft. The vast undulating meadow, Dayara Bugyal, is second to none in natural beauty in Uttarakhand. There is an immense possibility for Nordic as well as Alpine skiing since during winters it provides one of the best ski slopes in India spread over an area of 28 sq/kms. This breathtaking location is nestled amidst towering snow clad mountains. While on the Dayara Bugyal trek, catch sight of the lake of Barnala Tal strewn across the green alpine prairies– in whose reflection the peaks look even more beautiful.
