Deoriatal – Rohini Bugyal Trek Overview

Deoriatal – Rohini Bugyal is one of the most serene and fulfilling treks to consider across seasons. A perfect weekend trek, Deoriatal trek starts from the small village of Sari. The quaint Sari village is an ideal place to begin your journey into the wilderness. You start from this slow village of Sari and pass through the canopy of rhododendrons and oak forest to reach the first campsite. 

Deoriatal is a perfect spot to enjoy the mountain views and soak in the serenity of nature. On a clear day, Mt Chaukamba’s reflection on the pristine lake of Deoriatal is awe-inspiring. To witness Mt Chaukamba looming in the background from your tent is worth every climb. You can also witness the majestic view of the snow-capped peaks of Nilkantha, Bandarpooch, and Kalanag from the lake. 

The lake is guarded by beautiful forests covered with pine and rhododendrons. While sitting by the lake, you will witness the mighty Chaukamba looming beyond the lake and the forest.  

While the lake serves as a perfect place for immersing yourself in nature, Rohini Bugyal offers you a variety of exotic Himalayan birds. The Bugyal remains hidden amidst the forest and is a playground for migratory birds. 

The trek is located in the Rudraprayag district of Uttarakhand. Deoriatal holds a significant place in the hearts of locals as it is considered a sacred site bestowed by deities and was once used as a bathing place by them. The pristine lake is revered by the people residing in the nearby villages and is considered holy.

Deoriatal – Rohini Bugyal Bugyal is a perfect escape into the wilderness. Within three days, the trek offers majestic mountain views, flower-laden trails, and the tranquillity of nature to the fullest.

Here is a guide on how to plan your travel step by step to reach Dehradun.

The trek is 3 days long, we suggest our participants reach Dehradun on Day 0, and not Day 1. It allows you to rest before the trek begins, and ensures you do not miss the OWLS pickup from Dehradun on Day 1.

Travel Plan A – By Air till Dehradun :

If you are reaching Dehradun by air, here are a few options for planning your travel. Dehradun Airport is well connected with all the metro cities. You can book a direct or connecting flight to Dehradun. If you are planning to reach Dehradun by air, make sure you reach here on Day 0. Once you reach Dehradun on day zero, book a hotel or dorm near ISBT. Garhwal Mandal Vikas Nigam is 10 minutes away from ISBT and offers rooms at reasonable rates. They have economical as well as deluxe rooms. OWLS pick-up will be available on Day 1 at ISBT Dehradun.

Travel Plan B – By train/bus from Delhi :

If you are flying from any city to Delhi, you can opt to travel by bus or train from Delhi onwards. You can book and find your bus option at UTC Online. Try to board a bus or train which will arrive in Dehradun before 5:30 am on Day 1. The pick-up will be at 6 a.m from ISBT. Nanda Devi Express runs daily from Kota to Dehradun, reaches H Nizamuddin at 11.35 p.m, and arrives at Dehradun early in the morning at 5.40 a.m.

There are other options for traveling by train. If it is convenient you can choose to travel in the first half of the day to reach Dehradun at night and have well-deserved rest. Reaching Dehardun early morning on Day 1 will be a hectic affair. We recommend bus over train for cheaper rates and easy availability of buses from Delhi throughout the day.
