Ali Bedni Bugyal Trek Graph

Hiking in the Himalayas is not always about climbing high peaks or reaching to the high passes it about witnessing every element of the mountains. Amongst that is the never-ending eye-soothing greenery. Ali Bedni Bugyal trek as you might have guessed from the name is an epitome of meadows with stupendous Himalayan peaks standing tall in the background. The hike is a pleasant walk through the grasslands with cattle grazing, birds chirping and tiny flowers magnifying the elegance. The wonderful 6 days journey commences from Lohajung (popular from Roopkund trek) and ends at the beautiful Wan village.

Ali Bedni Bugyal Trek

After you arrive in Haridwar it is all about twists and turns of the lower to the higher Himalayas. Before the pasture land, you have to cross lush forests of Ghairoli Patal forests with rhododendrons, oaks and birch. It is a surprise to walk upon the green-lands after following the forest route. Another pleasant wonder is the Bedni Kund that just magnifies and reflects the beauty around it. Trishul peak is seen as close as possible and they are definitely something you must have never captured. Farther end of the skies is dominated by Chaukhamba peak. Throughout the meadows, you will see loads of sheep and horses grazing on them. You can also meet the Shepherds who have tonnes of exciting stories about their survival in the extreme weather.

The hike is suitable for beginners and experienced hikers looking for a happy experience. It is also a good family or kids trek. As the maximum height reached not more than 12,000 feet and maximum walk is through forest cover, there are fewer chances of AMS. However, it is always recommended to take precautions to prevent AMS. You must also be prepared physically to walk 3-4 hours daily. The 6-days peaceful meandering comes with all the happiness one can get from the mountains. The whole process of enjoyment turns into memories after you go back to Haridwar from the Wan village.

Risk & Respond

High Altitude Treks: Risk and Response A high altitude trek calls for an adventurous attitude, but embarking on an adventurous trip without calculating the risks is utter stupidity. That’s why we have listed a few risks and the response planned by TTH to minimise or address the risks in the best possible way.


Risk: Altitude Before you start the trek, it is important to understand the implications of high altitude on your body. Be aware of symptoms of AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness) like mild headache, nausea and general discomfort.

Response: If you feel any of these symptoms, inform the trek leader on priority and follow his instructions. Every campsite has as stretcher, fully equipped first aid kit, oxygen cylinders to address the situation.


Risk: Weather Weather is unpredictable in the Himalayas. Though we are always observant about the changing weather, no one can guarantee a snowfall, rain or Sun. Do understand that your security is of utmost importance to us and we will not proceed any further from the campsite if the weather is not favourable.

Response: The decision of the Trek Leaders and Guides to proceed or wait for the weather to get better will be final.


Risk: Injuries Often, while trekking over difficult terrains, you might have minor injuries like leg sprain, bruises etc. Serious injuries like fractures or major cuts are very rare.

Response: All our Trek Leaders are Certified Wilderness First Aid responders. They are trained to handle emergencies and can tackle minor injuries with a well-equipped first aid kit. In case of serious injuries, the patient is carried on a stretcher to the nearest road-head and is led to nearest medical centre.


Risk: Lack of communication devices In the remote areas of the Himalayas, mobile networks do not reach. On a trek, one is cut off from the world of calls, SMSs or watsapps.

Response: We rely on walkie-talkies and runners to communicate between the campsites and the base camps.
