Devkyara Trek is a thrilling meadow that highlights some grandiose regions like Bhawa, Obra Gad, Jakhol, and many more. This trek is often considered as the foremost attraction of the Himalayas which is located at a height of 4,100 m. It is nestled between the beautiful valleys Rupin and Supin.
It is perfect for both beginners as well as experienced trekkers because it is an easy trek. Devkyara trek is a less explored place which gives breathtaking vistas of famous mountains like Ranglana, Daowdu, Black Peak Bandarpoonch, Kedar Dome as well as Swargarohini.
During the trek, you will go through mesmerizing dense pine & oak forests that open to beautiful valleys. However, make sure that you carry your camera because you will come across colorful flowers, wild strawberries, and wild mushrooms that are difficult to find anywhere else.
The best time to go for this trek is from May to June and September to November because this is the time when Dev Kyara Peak is dressed up with exquisiteness. However, the magnificent views of glacier basins, alpine meadows as well as old Himalayan villages are going to make your trekking journey valuable.
