All About It
  • Difficulty - Easy Moderate

Plan The Unplanned brings you the Dayara Bugyal Trek, one of the finest Himalayan treks out there suitable for those looking to attempt their first Himalayan trek as well as the more experienced trekkers looking for a quick Himalayan getaway.

One of the less explored gems of Garhwal Himalayas, Dayara Bugyal is captivating in its own unique way. Bugyal in Garhwali means “Alpine Pasture” or “High Altitude Meadow”. It is arguably one of the prettiest meadows one would come across while trekking in the Himalayas. A perfect trek to step into the Himalayas as you walk through dense jungles, gaze at mighty Himalayan peaks, spend your evenings beside a high altitude lake and a walk on this endless pasture makes this trek very enticing. This Bugyal is situated in the Garhwal Himalayas of Uttarakhand at an elevation ranging from 10,000 – 12,000 ft. Dayara Bugyal offers some of the best views of Mt. Bandarpoonch, Swargarohini, Black Peak, Gangotri Ranges, DKD, Srikantha to name a few. So much for a low lying trek that it does not feel real and yet the trekkers are lost in its beauty and the quietness that this place provides.

This is a trek that can almost be done throughout the year and offers changing landscapes during different seasons. During winters, the meadows are covered in multiple feet of snow and on the lucky days, one can experience fresh snowfall. They turn into lush green after the snow starts receding with numerous flowers of different colors blooming in it. A lot of butterflies can be found around this time. The jungles are lit with Rhododendron flowers. The post monsoon season offers the trekkers with unrestricted views of all the surrounding peaks as the weather is mostly clear. On the onset of winter the meadows appear in hues of golden brown with clear skies for those long distant views. This trek offers a lot in such a short duration and the fact that the trek offers different flavours with the changing season makes it one of the ideal treks to choose round the year.

What’s life without adventure? Isn’t the real purpose of life to travel, to experience new places, and witness the sunrise from new mountaintops?

This thought is what united Jatin and Tarun over a cup of chai, in spite of being from two unrelated backgrounds (CA and IT). They knew each other since the time Jatin was helping Tarun learn the ways of the wilderness through weekend treks and outings with another traveling group. Their love for traveling and trekking together motivated them to start something of their own. Thus was born “Plan The Unplanned”, where travel goals come true. Under the Companies Act, Plan The Unplanned is incorporated as Unplanned Journeys Private Limited

They started their journey on unsteady ground, much like any other company, but they shared an infatuation for travel and adventure with their customers, which amplified their determination, and thus, Plan the Unplanned family keeps getting bigger every day!

Just about any travel idea can come alive with Plan The Unplanned…treks, adventure activities like rock climbing, kayaking, rafting, backpacking trips across the country, cultural outings, photo walks; everything that fellow travelers need, to explore the great outdoors together.

Well now that the wanderlust has kicked in and you can already see a vacation in your nearest future, here’s what we have to offer!

Frequest Questions

I'm a solo traveller, Can I join?

The interesting thing about traveling alone is that you get to meet new people from  diverse backgrounds, and towards the end you are no longer strangers. Hence solo travelers are always welcome to join us on our trips. Read more about solo travelling here and get inspired! https://www.plantheunplanned.com/solo-yet-accompanied/ 

Is it safe for Women/Girls?

Safety and security is our priority at all times. Hence it is absolutely safe for women/girls to join us on our treks and travels. Our trek leaders accompany the team at all times, and our campsites are secured and safe for accomodation. We also have female trek leaders who accompany on most of our treks.

What will be the group size?

Usually, we take maximum of 15-18 people in one group. We believe bigger groups have less fun and less coordination so that’s why we prefer smaller groups.
