Top Treks to do in Uttarakhand

Dayara Bugyal Trek 

The most popular route to reach the base area of Dayara Bugyal is from Dehradun but you can also start from Rishikesh.

However, Dehradun is well connected and is a short route to reach the base.

From Dehradun, you will go to Uttarkashi and then from there, you will head to Raithal or Barsu.

And there are many homestays available in Raithal or Barsu, which you can stay for that day.

Then on the next day, you will start trekking to Gui, which can take about 4 hours.

And this will make you gain gradual ascent and on the next day, you will start from Gui to Dayara Bugyal and Dayara Top.

From Gui, the trail is about 3 hours and from Dayara Bugyal it can take about 1 hour for the top.

If you want, you can also trek to Bakira top for another hour, which is worth doing because of the varied picturesque views.

Then on the same day, you must descend down to the Gui campsite.

Then on the next day, you will trek further down to Raithal from Gui, which will finally complete the Dayara Bugyal Trek

Kedarkantha Trek 

Kedarkantha Trek is one of the best treks for beginners and the only thing you need is to be fit and healthy to trek this peak.

This is an all-weather trek except for the winter months of December and January, where you must coordinate with the snow.

You must reach the base village of Kedarkantha called Sankri after traveling for about 10 hours.

After reaching Sankri, you can either stay in a tent or in a hotel or homestay in Sankri.

And after resting for that day you can start the trek to Kedarkantha the next day.

Start early in the morning so that you do not need to worry about the sunny day.

The most interesting part is that you will completely trek on a forest trail that is very beautiful to see and experience.

Then you will halt at Juda Ka Talab in order to make an overnight stay.

Then on the next day, you will reach the base camp of Kedarkantha, which is of normal ascent.

The next day will be your big day as you must push yourself to reach the peak on a chilling cold morning.

You have to start at around 4am in the morning along with your torches in order to view the majestic sunrise moment. 

Kuari Pass Trek 

The Kuari Pass Trek starts from Dhak village and for which you must start your journey from Delhi to Rishikesh and then to Joshimath.

After you reach Joshimath, you can either choose to stay at Joshimath itself and then leave for Dhak on the next day.

Or if you reached early to Joshimath, then you can further travel upto Dhak village and stay there for that night in a homestay nearby.

Then on the next day start your trek from Dhak to Gulling, which can take about 5 to 6 hours because of the mix of the trail with the forest with the patchy road route.

Then after a camp stay, you will start the trek to Khulara, the next day.

This is the most beautiful forest trail of 4 hours.

You will camp exactly in the forest and under the canopy! Next day will be a long one from towards Kuari Pass and then descent to Tali village, which can take you back to the home with lots of memories. 

Valley of Flowers Trek 

The Valley of Flowers Trek starts from Govindghat and the site is the most famous because of the tag it earned as the UNESCO World Heritage Site located in Chamoli district of Uttarakhand.

The first day of the trek starts from Govindghat to Pulna village.

You can reach Pulna village even by a car. From Pulna you will start the actual trekking to Ghangaria, which is 10 kilometers away from Pulna.

The next day would be your favorite day as you will finally reach the Valley of Flowers.

The trek from Ghangaria to Valley of Flowers is 7 kilometers with the beautiful waterfalls all along the trail.

Explore the valley for utmost satisfaction as it is spread across kilometers.

Many people just visit the entrance of the Valley, but you can also go deep into the valley and explore.

But you must keep a tab on your time so that you are down early by 5pm.

Then you can travel back to Ghangaria and Pulna the next day.
