Birds Spotted on the Dayara Bugyal Trek

Dayara Bugyal trek is famous for its rolling meadows, beautiful forests filled with oaks and maples. But not many know that this trek is also a birder’s paradise.

Trekkers usually look at Deoriatal-Chandrashila trek as a trail to spot different varieties of birds. Well, it is. But so is Dayara Bugyal trek.
