About Bali Pass Trek

Riding on Asia’s longest and highest ropeway, savouring the view of some of the largest peaks in the world, and skiing on the longest ropeway in India It is no exaggeration to say that Bali Pass Trek in the Garhwal region of Uttarakhand, Himalayan Mountains is mountaineers’ delight. In this Trek (4800 meters above sea-level) one can enjoy and come across hilly-terrain, rough boulders, dense forests with greenery everywhere, smooth silky lush green meadows, snow-clad glaciers and ice-frozen trekking path etc. when crossing each stop of Bali Pass Trekking. Ball Pass Trek starts from the Tons River Valley and ends in Yamuna River Valley. History has it that in the 1940s a School Teacher by name Jack Gibson of Doon School made this trek popular. Many Trekkers now enjoy his same pleasures every year in crowds.

The breathtaking views of Himalayan Peaks namely Swargarohini, Kalanag and Banderpunch are highlights of Bali Pass Trek, along with the splendid view of Supine Valley, and taking a holy-dip in the sacred Ruinsara Lake and visiting Yamunotri Temple, as extra bonuses. Best season for enjoying this Trek most is May to October. Popular among Trekkers is the route taken from Dehradun to Sankri via Mussoorie, Kempty Falls, Naugaon, Purola, Mori and Netwar. The actual trekking starts from Sankri to pass through Govind National Park (beautiful wild-flowers can’t be missed in pine and deodar forest); Taluka; Seema; Roiltia Waterfall Camp; Ruinsara Lake; Godari Camp (4100 meters); Upper Dhamni via Bali Pass; Yamunotri and Hanumanchatti.

After enjoying rest at Sankri after 7 hours travel from Dehradun, trekkers can embark to Taluka and Seema (12 kms). Although motorable, the journey by walk through the forest range will be more enchanting. Walking along the River bank, crossing fields, and apple orchards and pine forest. Seema to Roiltia is ascending trail of 4 Kms, and when the walkers cross this trail enjoying the green fields and flora and fauna as donation of Tons River, they really like the trekking. Reaching at Roiltia Waterfall they camp happily during night.

The next lap of the trek is ascending trail again for 9 kms. Until reaching the Ruinsara valley and the Ruinsara Lake, your eyes are feasting the pine, fir, birch and rhododendron bushes and trees. These are lovely sights only for the enjoyment of trekkers in Himalayan Mountains. Beautiful green meadows abound alongside Ruinsara Lake. Kalanag Peak is clearly visible from here. Local people believe this Lake as a sacred one and taking a holy-dip is considered divine.

Trekkers rest for one more day at this Ruinsara Lake Camp, to visit Kyarkoti base-camp for Kalanag peak trekking and back to the camp. This rest also acts as rejuvenation for climbing uphill next day. Marching towards Godari (4100 meters) and camping in such a best location high over the Mountain and excellent view of the valley below are really fantastic experiences. Godari to Upper Damini via Bali Pass will also be thrilling, because you have to ascend first to reach 4800 meters and descend through the alpine zone to reach Upper Damini at 4000 meters. Fabulous views of Himalayan Peaks, especially Panchachuli will be unforgettable. The downward-trek to Yamunotri and Hanumanchatti begins thereafter. On the way visit Yamunotri temple, worshipped very piously by the local people. From Hanumanchatti back to Dehradun to carry home the sweet memories of adventurous and lovely Bali Pass Trek!
