Day 01 :
RISHIKESH TO BARSU (2250M):
As for most Garhwal treks, our starting point is at Rishikesh from where a drive (via Uttarkashi) of 6-7 hours brings us to village Basru (2250m). Here we pitch our tents at Bugyal Sarai for lunch. The afternoon is yours to explore the nearby village and understand and observe the culture of these self sufficient villagers. Overnight at camp.
Day 02 :
BARSU TO DAYRA BUGYAL (3150M):
Packing for a trek can take quite a bit of time so we start our day early, finish breakfast and get ready to trek up! The schedule is as such that today we trek from Bugyal Sarai to Dayara Bugyal(3150 m) which is a walk of about six hours with a good view of the Himalayas all around. Thrilled but tired enough to hit the sacks immediately we camp overnight at Dayara.
Day 03 :
DAYRA BUGYAL TO SYARI BUGYAL (3400M):
This is an interesting day of trekking. The entire 5 hours from Darya Bugyal to Syari Bugyal is spent walking on the ridge of the mountain. It is a thrilling experience to actually walk with hundreds of meters of cliff below you! However, our guides are prepared to take care of you lest any danger prevails and you have not a thing to worry about. Exhilarated with the slight adventure, we camp below Syari Bugyal for the night.
