Dayara Bugyal, in Uttarkashi district, is a “high altitude meadow” situated at an elevation of 3408 metres (11,181 feet).  It is spread over 28 km, with a magnificent view of the Himalayan peaks.  It is an easy trek that passes through Oak forests, small water bodies and lush green meadows.



Gidara Bugyal is a lush green high altitude meadow, which is less frequented. A 12-13 km trek beyond Dayra Bugyal on an high altitude trail, which is gradually ascending, leads to the scenic Gidara Bugyal. This meadow is resplendent with a carpet of wild flowers.


A slightly strenuous  trek of 05 Km ex GidyaraBugyal leads  to  a pristine, very rarely frequented, high altitude lake – Bhim Tal.
