    Across a ridge that runs to the north west of the Gangotri valley, a set of ridge peaks dot this demarcation from the valley to other side. In order, from the south to north, first rises the Mukta top, followed by Siyari top, Dayara top, Surya top, & finally Gidara Top.   Tucked between the forests below and the peaks towering high, many beautiful and vast meadows stretch across the landscape. Two such meadows (bugyal), namely Dayara Bugyal & Gidara Bugyal are both massive and remarkably beautiful. Dayara Bugyal is a well known trekking route, while Gidara Bugyal is much more secluded and far bigger and prettier.

    The Gidara Bugyal trek starts from Bhangeli village in Uttarakhand. It is located very close to Harsil, famous for its apple produce and magnificent views overlooking the Bhagirathi river in the Gangotri valley.   Bhangeli is situated at a distance of 185 KM from Dehradun and the drive takes you through Uttarkashi town. It takes 8 hours to reach Bhangeli. You will have to hike 1 KM to reach the village.
