Bagji Bugyal is a lovely Meadow, located at an elevation of 3,250 metres in the Chamoli District of Uttrakhand.
The neighborhood villagers discuss about a time, 60-70 years ago, when tigers (Bagh in the nearby language) used to freely roam alongside the meadows.
Tribal herdsmen used to keep away from the bugyal lest their flock, or even worse, the herdsmen themselves fall pray to these cats. Just to mark these unique set of bugyal , they gave it title – Bagji Bugyal. The literal translation being tiger meadows. Unfortunately, the tigers disappeared.
This stipulated meadow of Bagji Bugyal brings the most captivating trekking possibilities for the traffic to locate the scenic mountains, deep valleys and lofty mountains alongside the most memorable sunsets and sunrises and the most huge western flanks of Trishul and the Nanda Ghunti bringing heaven on earth.
