Dayara Bugyal is one of the most beautifully maintained Himalayan meadows in the country, if not the best. There are so many folk stories in praise of Dayara Bugyal in the Himalayan regions, when tourists go up trekking they too get in awe of the beauty, that is the Bugyal, no amount of praise is enough, the grass in the entire meadows is so soft, the weather is so perfect, the grazing animals and local human population are so much complimenting each other, it is like a picture postcard out of a dream location. Once you reach the top you will have a 180 degrees beautiful view of the nearby hills, Banderpoonch, Kalanag, and Draupadi ka danda.

The entire journey is on forest trails, the forests are full of green and brown oaks with rhododendron trees, the experience of walking through these is so enchanting, and reminds one of childhood fairy tales. Once the snow starts to melt in April, Dayara Bugyal looks like a paradise with sunshine, trekking through the green meadows is an enchanting experience of another level. In the winters even skiing takes place due to heavy snowfall on the top.

Raithal is the starting point of the trekking journey, you will walk through maple and oak forests, and once you reach Gui an idyllic village you will have a first-hand experience of the lives on the higher Himalayas, further up is Chillapada (Chill your feet) this village is usually filled with a carpet of snow in the winter months, here you can acclimatize with the Himalayan breeze, and the beautiful landscapes. Once you go further up, your real trek starts here as the accent is a bit steeper, you can take off your shoes and start grass walking through the meadows.
