Overview


This trek for those who enjoy vast expanses of meadows, a never ending lush green feast for your eyes at 12,000 feet above sea level. As one of the campsites for the greater Roopkund trek, people dont usually spend time exploring this bugyal and enjoying it to its truest. Which is why we have added this as a trek to do, as one of the best place to explore wilderness backpacking. With majestic views of Nanda Gunti, Trishul, Chaukhamba and other snow capped peaks, this trek is best enjoyed post monsoon when the grass is green and the sky is blue. Come Septermber, Bedni bugyal transfers into a festival grounds with the locals celebrating the Nanda Gunti yatra. If these two meadows do not satisfy your eyes, we have discovered more hidden meadows around the same area, maybe you could plan a detour someday!
