Bedini Bugyal - the Dreamscape Alpine Meadow

Bedini Bugyal - the Dreamscape Alpine Meadow
The whole meadow is yours, set up your tent anywhere in the lap of Himalayas!
If you are a movie buff and always been fascinated by lush green meadows shown in the dance or chase sequence, why haven't you been to a real meadow, may be to spend a day in the lap of nature? Like you I too had the notion that those dreamy meadows are only found in western countrysides, till I came to know of Bedini Bugyal. 'Bugyal' means nature's own garden, and Bedini Bugyal is a dreamscape, precisely an alpine meadow in the Chamoli district of Uttarakhand, situated at an elevation of 3354 meters, falls on the trekking trail to Roopkund.

"Bedini bugyal provides an excellent grazing ground and pastures for tribal herdsmen"
You can revisit your childhood and run barefoot on the undulating grass carpet of Bedini Bugyal. You can set up your tent anywhere at Bedini Bugyal, except near the Nanda Devi Temple. Pre-built camps and green huts at very affordable rent are also available for solo backpackers. The famous Roopkund Lake is about 10 odd kilometers from this grassland and determined trekkers make it in a single day. But why to hurry when you can call it a day at the camping ground, sit back in Bugyal and get mesmerized by the grandeur of Mount Trisul or Mount Nanda Ghunti. Visit my previous photo post to see how clearly you can capture the beauty of Trisul from this dreamscape Bugyal! In my subsequent photo post I'll show you the little lake in the middle of Bedini Bugyal called Bedini Kund. Keep dreaming about this mountain meadow-scape till then...

  1. I didn't visit the valley when I was in the state however, I did visit fabulous oak forests and deodar forests of the state. The trees were so tall that you had to crane your necks up at 90 degree to try to see the tops and still you probably won't :D Now maybe I will blog about it too :D
