The spring thaw melts the snow giving rise to a soft carpet of wild grass dotted by hundreds of varieties of wild flowers blooming in the bright sunshine. Cattle bells and shrieks of Ravens are the only sounds apart from the gentle humming sounds of the wind are the only companions for the awed visitor. The locals believe that the Bugyals are home to angels and fairies, and it is therefore forbidden for them to consume alcohol or heat here!
