"Dayara Bugyal is a great trek for an introduction to trekking. It offers several elements with include a forest walk, meadow stretches, a braod trail with a gentle incline leading up the the massive Dayara Bugyal. The view from Dayara Bugyal (3300m) is indeed memorable.

You get a feeling that you are indeed face to face with the Banderpunch massif. In the distance towards the east a string of peaks are visible including Srikanta, the Gangotri Group, Jaonli and Draropti ka Danda. Walking around the meadow, which spreads out for a couple of kilometers, is also an experience. The best viewing point on the meadow is Dayara Top (3500m), which is the highest point on the meadow."
