Dayara Bugyal is a vast land with lush green vegetation spread at a very long distance. We can climb up to Bakaria top which is the highest point of this bugyal. Take snacks along with you and return after sunset. The setting rays of the sun and the colors of the sky reflect beautifully on the snow-capped mountains in front of us. This is not more than a lifetime experience where nature and humankind meet to witness the surreal blend of both.
Head back to Dayara Bugyal and start preparing for the last meal on the trail.
Trekkers usually chose to climb down from the other side of the meadow and reach Raithal village, another base camp for the Dayara Bugyal trek. Raithal is a peaceful small village amidst the pine forest on the other side of Barsu where people come to relax and breathe leaving their city lives behind for a while.
