The trip to this beautiful natural wonder begins in the city of Uttarkashi, in the foothills. Uttarkashi is, of course, also the starting point of many pilgrimage walks, with the predominant trip to the Hindu temple of Kedarnath. Uttarkashi is easily accessible by road from the main cities of Uttarakhand , such as Rishikesh, Haridwar and Dehradun. The walk to the fascinating Darya Bugyal is approximately 15 kilometers long and will take you to witness some of the most beautiful and intact parts of nature. The literal translation of Bugyal is, in fact, a meadow located at high altitude, which is why it is also famous.

A beautiful lake overlooking a vast region of lush green pastures awaits hikers as they approach from Uttarkashi. The backdrop of this exquisite natural meadow is composed of some imposing Himalyan peaks such as Kala Nag (Black Snake) and Bandar Poonch (Money Tail). The area around the lake is approximately 28 square kilometers and offers ample space for hikers to head and establish camps for the night. The same area serves as a place for an excellent skiing experience during the winter months.
