Dayara Bugyal Trek

This is a trek that can almost be done throughout the year and offers to change 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.
