The Bali Pass trek, reaching an altitude of 16,200 feet, is a rigorous journey not suited for the faint-hearted. Beginning from Sankri and ending at Jan ki Chatti via Yamunotri, it demands experienced and physically fit trekkers.

Itinenary

Pick up at 8:00 am from Prince Chowk, Dehradun.
Dehradun to Sankri (6400 ft) by shared vehicle. Approx 200 Km – 9/10 hours.
Night stay at Sankri on sharing basis in a guesthouse.

The drive from Dehradun to Sankri is a scenic journey through the beautiful landscapes of Uttarakhand, often undertaken by those heading to the base for treks in the Garhwal region.

The drive takes you through winding roads, charming villages, and lush greenery, offering a delightful journey into the heart of the Garhwal Himalayas. We cross through Mussoorie, Kempty Falls, Mori, Purola, Netwar visualizing the beauty of Himalayas. Be prepared for varying road conditions and consider the weather, as the region can experience snowfall in winter months. It’s advisable to check road conditions and travel updates before undertaking the journey.

Sankri (6400 ft) to Taluka (7200 ft) in a shared camper vehicle (12 kms – 45 mins)
Trek from Taluka (7200 ft) to Puani Garaat (8200 ft) via Gangad (12 kms – 6/7 hrs).

After a healthy breakfast, we leave Sankri for Taluka. The drive to Taluka itself is a adventurous journey on the bumpy roads in a camper vehicle.

Begin your trek from Taluka, a small village in the Uttarkashi district and the starting point of the Har Ki Dun trek. This trail offers a mix of landscapes, including quaint villages, dense forests, and high-altitude meadows. Puani Garaat is often used as a camping site, providing trekkers with a peaceful and scenic place to rest. Today’s trail is a mix of flat walk, gradual ascent and an intermediate steep ascent by the side of Supin River.

Puani Garaat (8200 ft) to Devsu Bugiyal (10200 ft) Trek.(Approx 12 kms – 6/7 hrs).

Today also, the trek is along the Supin river. First milestone is Debshu Bugyal, from where we will get a magnificent view of Kala Nag or Black Peak. After crossing Debshu Bugyal, we will descend through the forest with loose stones and sandy path to the river. We will cross the Supin river through a bridge. After crossing the bridge, we will again ascend with the Supin river flowing now on our right. There are a couple of tricky sections with slippery path where we might have to take a diversion. Trek along the river until we reach our campsite, which is by the side of the river. Overnight stay in Camps.

Rainbasera (10200) to Ruinsara Taal (11800 ft).
( Approx 7 kms – 5/6 hrs).

Ruinsara is a lovely lake surrounded by meadows and rhododendron bushes. The trail is not difficult but it is tiring. The campsite is beautiful. On one side of our camps is tiny lake of Ruinsara and on the other side is Supin River. The view from the campsite is mesmerising. On the south-west of Ruinsara Tal is Yamuna Kanta, the pass which takes you to Yamunotri and is rated as a difficult trek. To the east is the majestic Banderpooch Peak (6,387 m). The views of Dhumdhar Kandi (5,873 m) to the east, and Kala Nag (6,387m) and White Peak (6,102m) to the south-east are spectacular.

Ruinsara taal (11800 ft) to Odari (13100 ft).
(Approx. 4 kms – 4 hours)

At beginning we descend down to Supin river through the dense vegetation. Crossing the river through a bridge, we will then ascend to a small meadow and then head south east along the river. After a trek of 3 kms or so the trail meanders towards south west. Walking for a kilometre from here brings us to our campsite Odari. Odari means a naturally made rock cave. According to folklore, it is believed that Bali (Hanuman’s brother) stayed in this cave for one night. The views from the campsite are spectacular. In the North East we will have the crystal clear view of mighty peaks of Swargarohini 1 & 2.

Odari (13100 ft) to Bali Col Camp (15100 ft) trek.
(Approx 5 kms – 5/6 hours)

The day starts with a short hike south west to the base camp, but this hike would not be an easy one. We will have to walk on a mountain ridge with a 60 degree incline full of loose stones. This day is critical as we will be camping at a height of 15000 ft. It is important to keep yourself active & hydrated to avoid chances of getting AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness). The temperature will drop to subzero levels increasing the difficulty many folds. Acclimatisation also takes longer at such heights. Overnight stay in camps.

Bali Col (15100 ft) to Lower Dhamni (11100 ft) via Bali Pass (16200 ft) trek.
(Approx. 14 kms – 11/12 hours)

Today is THE day because we will cross the Bali Pass (16200 ft) and reach our next and also the last campsite, Lower Dhamni. We head south east towards the pass. Today’s trek will be longer and the most challenging one. We will break camps and start trekking early in the morning at around 6 AM. The trail upto the pass remains full of snow which will require using the techniques learnt earlier. It will take around 2-3 hours to reach the pass from the base camp. Once we reach the pass, enjoy the 360 degree view of peaks such as Swargarohini, Banderpooch, Garhwal ranges and the Yamnotri valley. The most interesting as well as the difficult part of the trek starts after crossing the Bali Pass. We will descend down through a nearly vertical path full of scree and big stones. After crossing this leg, we will come across the goat route. To cross this leg, one needs to be mentally prepared because we will walk on an irregular path which is 6 inches or less wide in some places. After this extremely challenging part, we will rest for a while at a site called Upper Dhamni. After taking rest, we will resume our trek to Lower Dhamni. The path is a confusing one and therefore it is advised to stay with your trek leader and team.

Lower Dhamni (11100 ft) to Janki Chatti (8500 ft) via Yamunotri trek.
(Approx. 10 kms – 6/7 hours)
Drive from Jan ki Chatti to Dehradun – 170 Km – 8/9 hours in a shared vehicle.

This will be our last day of trek. Initial trail is through forest which then merges into a cemented path. The trail is 4.5 km long with mild ascent upto Yamunotri. It will take around 1 hour and 30 minutes to reach Yamunotri. After reaching Yamunotri, you may take a dip in the Sulphur hot water springs of Yamnotri. Bathing in the hot water springs will take away the pain in your legs. From the shrine of Yamunotri we will take the regular pilgrims route to Jaan Ki Chatti which is around 5 km. We board the vehicle already waiting for us and drive to Dehradun
We’ll reach Dehradun by 9 pm. You can book your onward journey after 9 pm.
