The reason Dayara Bugyal is so breathtakingly beautiful is because of its location. The meadow is at an elevation of over 10,000 feet. From Dayara, you can see the Greater Himalayan range in all its beauty. The majestic summits of the Gangotri range, including Bandarpunch, Kala Nag, Srikanth, Jaonli, and Draupadi Ka Danda, are so close that you can almost touch them. The meadow is famous for its alpine flowers, which bloom in a riot of colours during the summer. The most common flowers include Himalayan blue poppies, daisies, and primroses. The oak and rhododendron forests that surround the meadow are a beautiful contrast to the snow-covered mountains. The trek is home to several species of birds, including the Himalayan monal, the state bird of Uttarakhand.

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 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.

You can find a flowing stream next to the camping site. 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.

After taking a memorable group picture, get into the cab that will ride you back to Dehradun.

Options to reach Dehradun

1. Take an overnight train/bus to Dehradun, and then take a cab to the pickup point.

We always recommend to go for the govt buses over the private ones outside the bus station as based on the experience we have found that there are very high chances of delay involved with private buses. Also, govt. buses are always more reliable. Whichever bus you choose, just make sure to reach Dehradun at least by 06:30 am positively.

2. Take flight to Dehradun airport (Jolly Grant Airport) (25 km, 50 min), if coming by flight then come one day early.
