The only reason I can never say 'no' to the Dayara Bugyal trek is because of its scenic beauty. Short and easy, we completed within the allocated time of 5 days. Winter is the much preferred time as during this, summers are also good but then I won't say it will a wise decision. Overall, nice trek for beginners.
