Bugyal in the local language means ?high altitude meadow?. Situated at an elevation of about 10,000 feet above seal-level this vast meadow is second to none in natural beauty. During winter, it provides excellent ski slopes over an area of 28 sq. kms. The panoramic view of the Himalayas from here is breathetaking. There is a small lake also in the area, and to camp by its side would be memorable event.
