Ali Bedni Bugyal Trek Introduction

Ali Bedni Bugyal Trek or Bedni Summit is one of the most beautiful treks of all-time. Walking through the rivers, forests, and meadows is mesmerizing. One fails to describe with words.

It is considered a moderate trek because of the terrain, as this trek shares a similar path with the Roopkund trek. Roopkund was banned for the last two years and closed. This place is a little ahead of Ali Bedni Bugyal. And, that being the last point of Ronti saddle expedition. In brief, considered the toughest. So our trek was till Ali Bedni summit, then back to our base.

My Experience on Ali Bedni Bugyal Trek

It was a wonderful experience so far. Initially, we planned only for Brahmatal. But, in just five days, we had completed two treks. After completing the first two days to Brahmatal, we rested for a night. The next day, we started for Ali Bedni. It was an on-the-go plan. In all, we completed the trek and feel proud doing it.

Itinerary Ali Bedni Bugyal trek

Day 1 – Lohajung to Didina Village

At first, we took the permission of the forest dept. In addition, we gathered some information about the trek and asked for a local guide to join us. Then, we left in the afternoon and arranged for transport to reach Didini Village. For this, you have to travel by vehicle for around 10 km.

There is the temple on the way. After taking blessings, we started covering about a mile. We crossed the river, then climbed up in the evening and reached the village. Our accommodation was ready. We reached on time and had dinner. Later, we were tired enough, so we crashed on our beds.

Day 2 – Didina to Ali Bedni Bugyal

After having breakfast, we packed our dinner and breakfast for the next day from the village. Walking a few minutes, we reach the forest area away from the hamlet. It was so peaceful that one could hear the birds chirping.

There is a point where you can refill your bottles with water from a natural spring. We carried as much water as there may be water scarcity during our walk. Unfortunately, many of us fell ill after drinking the water without boiling it.

After walking for continuously 3-4 hours, we saw the light and a Bugyal. We climbed and reached the top of one of the bugyal. Ecstatic and jumpy, we admired the majestic peaks in front of us. We thought we had arrived. But, it was not the place. We had to walk further. However, we rested there and clicked some photos. Mount Trishul was visible.

Then, after walking for another two km, we located the forest huts. We were so glad that we kept our bags inside one of the huts and arranged for woods and water for the night. We had a packed dinner from the village. The sky was clear, and the weather was cold.

(Stay on Day 02 below Bedni summit you have to stay in forest huts if nobody has taken it before as its get windy in night and for food either you carry Maggie or some ready to eat food or else you can get your food packed for the day from the village the way we did.)

Day 3 – Bedni Summit and Lohajung

In the morning, we heated up the packed food puri and sabzi. We also ate Maggie and started to climb Ali Bedni summit. Continuously walking for the last four days, the fatigue was onto us. But, we overcame that and were excited to reach the summit. Upon reaching the top of the Ali Bedni summit, we took pictures.

It was amazing feeling which cannot be expressed you can know how blessed we were feeling once by seeing the video, though this is how we completed one more journey best moments for life captured.

The climb was so steep that we walked slowly and took a rest every 10 mins. At the summit, the view of Mount Trishul was remarkably close. It was windy, so we left after spending some time and went down for Bedni Bugyal. It was snowing all around us, and the view was fantastic and filmy. Alas, we realized the beautiful combination of tough walking and beautiful nature.

We made our descent to the point Wan Village, where we could get the transport to Lohajung. Everyone was hungry and had walked down all the way. We thanked the villagers and played one last time with the kids.
