Bagji Bugyal  is a beautiful Meadow, situated at an elevation of 3,250 metres in the  Chamoli District of Uttrakhand.

The local villagers talk about a time, 60-70 years ago, when tigers (Bagh in the local language) used to freely roam along the meadows.

Tribal herdsmen used to avoid the bugyal lest their flock, or even worse, the herdsmen themselves fall pray to these cats. Just to mark these particular set of bugyal , they gave it name – Bagji Bugyal. The literal translation being tiger meadows. Unfortunately, the tigers disappeared.

This stipulated meadow of Bagji Bugyal brings the most fascinating trekking opportunities for the visitors to find the scenic mountains, deep valleys and lofty mountains along the most memorable sunsets and sunrises and the most enormous western flanks of Trishul and the Nanda Ghunti bringing heaven on earth.

The Bagji Bugyal Trek confines one’s heart with the sprawling colours of nature bedded over the lush green meadows. The entire stretch  displays a vast natural gallery of wild flowers and varied species of Himalayan trees.
