But you need to ensure that the difficulty level arises during winters so prepare well before going for trekking. 

In the spring season which is from mid march to April you will find that the snow melts and the grass turns green at the meadows. While spring can also be the great time to see the colour patterns on the meadows and the snow. 

In summer you see the brightening green meadows and you will feel the fragrance in summers over the oak trees. So you will not face much difficulty during summers. Take your family there and enjoy the sunrise over the mountains. 

The sky looks even more clearier in autumn and you get to see the sharp mountain sights.

Also during autumn there is an absolute uproar of colours where maple turns into red leaves which is the view to behold within you. 

Difficulty level: 

Though it is an easy moderate trek, it sets a very high altitude so the difficulty level arises. The couple of sections are challenging in this trek. So here are some pointers to keep in mind before trekking to Dayara Bugyal: 

You need to have proper training sessions that will check your endurance and strength. There are two sections where you will face difficulty. First, the basecamp to forest area as it is 1km steep and will check your stamina therefore. Second is the climb to the top of Dayara Bugyal as it is more steeper and snowy. Also during winters it becomes a lot challenging for you to climb over snow mountains. 

Note- don’t start your trek in the early morning as the snow gets even harder and frozen overnight. So trek during the mid evening or so. 

Wear your microspikes when climbing to the steeper sections of snow to prevent any kind of injuries. 

There are chances that you can catch mountain sickness as Dayara Bugyal mountain is set at a high altitude so don’t forget to carry the prescribed medicines for that. The symptoms you might suffer are persistent headaches, fatigue or feeling dizzy. Also there are some exit points on Dayara Bugyal treks so if you feel like an emergency then drive from Raithal or Barsu.
