Dayara Bugyal - Dodital Trek

Dayara Bugyal - Dodital Trek

A Himalayan High Experience
About The Dayara Bugyal - Dodital Trek

The Dayara Bugyal Dodital trek follows the same route as the Dayara Bugyal trek, but exits from the other side to the Asi Ganga Valley touching the pristine beauty of the Dodital. The route climbs to Dayara Bugyal, explores arund it and the treks down to the river side camp beside the Asi river. It then climbs up to the Dodital, Darwa top, before exiting to the road head of Sangam Chatti.


Dayara Bugyal:

Dayara bugyal is a classic, picturesque meadow in the Garhwal Himalayas. Its a wide expanse of lush green meadow with its never ending humps and hovered over by white peaks of Banderpoonch, Kalanag, Srikhand, Draupadi Ka Danda, etc.

Its an all season trek, and in each season this trek is a beauty. The winter pours down heavy snowfall and puts a thick cover of snow on the Dayara Bugyal, making it a snow ski destination. That makes Dayara Bugyal not just a trekker's delight, but also skiers. Dayara bugyal is also a super snow trek. When the blanket of snow takes off the surface slowly, the moist meadow of Dayara makes a good ground for colourful flowers to to bloom on it making Dayara a beautiful colourful meadow. The monsoon rains further sharpens the green hue of the grasses and the cycle repeats throughout the year making Dayara Bugyal a very picturesque trek in the Garhwal.



A peaceful lake amidst the forest surrounded by tall trees. Rare Himalayan trout fish swims in it with full elegance. The temple of Lord Ganesha adds a spiritual aspect to the site.


Mythological Belief Of Dodital:

As per the legend, Dodital is the very place in Hindu mythology where the epic act of Lord Ganesha -  a very important Hindu God with the body of a human and head of an Elephant, was born. It is believed that Parvati, Ganesha's mother wanted to take bath and had ordered Ganesha, her son to guard the site. Ganesha was the son of Lord Shiva (The Hindu God of Destruction ) and Parvati, but Lord Shiva was unknown of the fact that Ganesha was his son, as he was born in his absence. When Parvati was taking bath, Lord Shiva returned from his yatra and was obstructed bravely and aggressively by Ganesha. This made Lord Shiva very angry and he cut off Ganesha's head. When Parvati saw this, she broke down and got angry with Lord Shiva, and wanted to destroy the entire creation. She wanted Lord Shiva to undo his act, which had become a very difficult problem to solve. Lord Brahma (Hindu God Of Creation ) intervened to rescue the crisis and suggested Parvati to reconsider her decision. Parvati had 2 wishes to be fulfilled - Firstly Ganesha be brought back to life and secondly Ganesha to be worshiped before offering puja to any other God. On this, Lord Shiva came out with a solution that any animal's head could be used to bring back life to Ganesha and he advised his soldiers to bring the head of the first animal they sighted, facing North. Soon his helpers started to look out for that animal and they returned with an Elephant's head which was fixed on Ganesha's torso and he came back to life.
