How-Bali-Pass-Looks-On-Day-2

From Taluka, our trekking starts and we will trek a distance of 12 km to reach our Seema campsite. Seema is on the right side of the Supin River and we will trek through a dense forest cover of Walnuts, Chestnuts, Willows, and other coniferous trees and by the side of the Supin River to reach Seema. The path along the River is stony. After a few hours of walking by the River and crossing some streams, you will arrive at Gangad Village and it will give you a glimpse of the typical Himalayan architecture. 20 minutes further walk and you will reach the water run mill and a Dhaba.

After trekking for another hour, you will reach an opening to a construction site. The concrete construction is actually for a proposed school in the area. You will spot a wooden bridge that will take you to Gangad Village. Gangad Village has become quite a popular tourist destination due to its unique architecture and the presentation of Garhwali culture. Gangad Village is home to about 200 families and you can observe the vibrant Himalayan lifestyle in the village.

Seema campsite is only a tourist shelter point and it is not a village or settlement, Seema is just opposite Gangad Village, on the other side of the River.

How-Bali-Pass-Looks-On-Day-3

The trail begins with Supin River on the left and while ascending, the path soon becomes steep as you get closer to Devsu Bugyal, climbing up, you will get the views of Osla Village behind you and as you enter the Ruinsara Valley, the path becomes filled with boulders adding more challenge to your trek. 30 minutes further walk will bring you into Devsu Bugyal meadows and the meadow stretches for about 2 km. We will rest here for a while appreciating the natural beauty.

The Devsu Bugyal meadows are set amidst the Ruinsara forest and while ascending towards Devsu Bugyal, you will see a variety of Himalayan wildflowers and foliage. The forest is also home to many bird and animal species as well and hiking through the forest, you may even spot some rare species along the way.

The trek starts with a descent to the Supin River along with dense vegetation and after crossing the river through a bridge, you will descend to a small meadow and continue our trek in the south-east direction along the river. A further walk for about an hour will bring you to Odari.

How-Bagji-Bugyal-Looks-On-Day-5

The name Odari means naturally made rock cave and as per the folklore, the locals believe that Sugreevs brother, Bali had spent a night here at Odari. Odari campsite also offers some stunning views of Swargrohini peaks. If you are lucky, you might find evidence of the rare Himalayan mountain bear as well.  The camp is set in a unique location with the beautiful valleys below you and the Bali Pass behind you. 

After lunch, the trek leader will give you a briefing and some training that will be useful when you trek toward the summit. Have proper food and sleep well so that you have good energy for your summit trek tomorrow. Being a high-altitude base camp, the temperatures at night can fall to sub-zeros and as such you need to take appropriate measures to warm yourself.

Odari to Bali col camp

  • Altitude: 4,600 m/ 15,100 ft.
  • Altitude difference: 600 m/ 2,000 ft.
  • Trek Distance: 5 km | 6 - 7 hr.
  • Steep and technical ascent. Walk on a mountain ridge.
  • Carry water from the campsite, no sources of water on the way.
  • Packed lunch provided at the campsite.
  • Stay in tents.

How-Bali-Pass-Looks-On-Day-6

The trek from Odari to Bali Col Camp is 5 km and the camp is situated at an altitude of 15,100 ft. Begin the trek by heading southwest towards the base camp. You will walk along a mountain ridge to reach the base camp. The trek difficulty gradually increases from Odari as you get closer to the Pass. From Odari camp, carry at least 2 liters of water with you as there are no water sources on the way to our next campsite.

Today we will be camping at an altitude of 15,100 ft so you should be properly hydrated and keep yourself as active as possible to avoid the chances of AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness). The ridge that we climb up is sharply inclined at 60 degrees, which can make for a strenuous climb even though the distance is short. The temperature also rapidly drops and acclimatization takes longer at such heights, so take all the appropriate measures and follow your trek leader’s advice. Sleep early and get as much rest as possible to trek to the summit the next day.

Bali col camp to Lower Dhamni via Bali Pass

  • Altitude: Bali Pass 4,950 m/ 16,200 ft, Lowar Dhamni 3,350 m/ 11,100 ft.
  • Altitude difference: -1,200 m/ 4,000 ft.
  • Trek Distance: 14 km | 10 - 11 hr.
  • Steep technical ascent till Bali Pass. From Bali Pass technical descent till halfway. Following trek leader’s and guide’s instructions as route after the pass is confusing.
  • Summit View: Bandarpoonch, Kalanag (Black Peak), Ruinsara and Yamuntori side, logical route to Saptarishikund.
  • Carry enough water from campsite
  • Packed lunch on the way
  • Stay in tents

Today is the summit as we will trek to the highest point of the trek touching an altitude of 16,200 ft.  After making the summit, we will also descend to our next campsite at Lower Dhamni, which is at an elevation of 11,100 ft. Today’s trek will be the longest and the most challenging so far. Beginning our day early in the morning, we will head southeast towards the Pass. 

How-Bali-Pass-Looks-On-Day-7

The entire trail is filled with snow and you will have to use the skills that your trek leader taught earlier to maneuver through the snow. From the base camp, it takes about 2 to 3 hours to reach the summit and once you are at the top, you can enjoy some of the most stunning mountain views that you have ever witnessed.

Get 360-degree views of Himalayan peaks like Bandarpoonch, Swargrohini, and other ranges of the Garhwal Himalayas from the top and you will also get views of the Yamunotri Valley from here. After spending some time at the summit, we will descend to the Lower Dhamni campsite.

The trail to the summit is quite difficult and Bali Pass Summit is quite narrow itself, 10 feet long and 30 feet wide and cannot accommodate more than 20 to 30 people at a time. Overcoming all the challenges when you make it to the summit fills you with a sense of accomplishment and pure joy and the difficult climb ends up becoming extremely rewarding.

The descent to Lower Dhamni is quite challenging. Even though we are moving downhill, the descent is very steep and technical. Its almost a vertical path, so you need to be very very careful. Also, the path is full of big stones and loose stones, which adds to the difficulty. If there is snow, then it will further add to the challenge.

The difficult path does not end here, after the steep descent we have to walk on a very narrow path, which is as narrow as 6 inches in some places, so follow your trek leader and heed their advice as you climb down to Upper Dhamni. After such a challenging descent, we will rest for a while at Upper Dhamni before resuming our trek.

The trek down from Upper Dhamni to Lower Dhamni is not marked and is also quite confusing as it runs in a zig-zag maze. It is advised that everyone sticks close together and observe your trek leader and the guiding team. After crossing the meandering path, the trail flattens out and is now easily visible. After trekking for about 2 km through a forest cover, you will arrive at your Lower Dhamni campsite. After a long and tiring day, you can rest in your tents to recuperate.

Lower Dhamni to Jaan ki Chatti and drive to Dehradun

  • Altitude: 2,600 m/ 8,500 ft. (Jaan ki Chatti)
  • Altitude difference: 800 m/ 2600 ft.
  • Trek Distance (Lower Dhamni - Janki Chatti): 8 km | 4 - 5 hr.
  • An easy and well-defined trail.
  • Enough water sources on the way.
  • Lunch on the way (not included in the cost).
  • Drop to Dehradun (not included in the cost).
  • Drive Distance (Janki Chatti - Dehradun): 170 km, 7-8 hrs approx.
  • Driving time to Dehradun may increase due to heavy traffic. Make your further travel plan from Dehradun after 8:00 pm.

This is the last day of your trek and also the end of your journey. The descent down is fairly easy as compared to the other days and there are more descends than ascends through a cement-paved trail. The entire trail takes place through a cemented path and there is a mild ascent till Yamunotri and it will take about 1 to 2 hours to reach Yamunotri temple.

Visit the Yamunotri shrine, pay your tributes and from here we will take the regular pilgrims route to Janki Chatti. The trek from Yamunotri to Janki Chatti is about 5 km and transportation arrangements are made for you here to drive you back to Dehradun. We will leave early from the campsite to reach Dehradun. With a beautiful offbeat trekking experience and some wonderful memories, you will head back home after an incredible experience.

How To Reach

It is essential for everyone to arrive at Dehradun (06:00 am). 

Once you have reached Dehradun, TTH will manage the rest of your travel arrangements, if you have opted for TTH's pick-up service, you can select this option during the booking process by adding it as an add-on.

 

Options to reach Dehradun - First, you can arrive at Delhi, Dehradun airport or Chandigarh. The journey from these locations to Dehradun is explained below.

1. Take an overnight train.

2. Take a bus to Dehradun, and then take a cab to the pickup point (Railway station).

Delhi to Dehradun - 250km | 6hr.

Chandigarh to Dehradun - 220km | 5hr 

The distance from the Dehradun Bus Stand (ISBT) to the Railway Station is 6 km, without traffic, it will take 15 minutes.

We always recommend to go for the govt. Buses over the private ones outside the bus station as based on the experience we have found that there are very high chances of delay involved with private buses. Also, govt. Buses are always more reliable. Whichever bus you choose, just make sure to reach Dehradun at least by 05:30 am positively.

3. Take flight to Dehradun airport (Jolly Grant Airport) (25 km, 50 min), if coming by flight then come one day early.

The distance from Railway Station to Dehradun Airport is 28km, it will take approx 45min to 1hr.

It's highly advisable to keep a buffer day in your travel plan. If the buffer day is not needed, it can be used to explore Dehradun/Mussoorie/Rishikesh.

If you prefer to travel independently to Base camp and don't want to take TTH's pick-up service, you can either take a government bus or book a private cab from Rishikesh. Your trek coordinator will provide guidance on how to arrange for the bus or cab booking.

In the unlikely event that TTH cancels a trek prior to the scheduled departure date:

While it is extremely rare for TTH to cancel a trek, we understand that unforeseen circumstances or natural disasters may occasionally require us to do so before the scheduled departure. These circumstances could include continuous rain or snow, thunderstorms, snowstorms, landslides, floods, earthquakes, or any other natural calamity that poses a risk to the safety of our trekkers. Additionally, unforeseeable events such as local riots, curfews, pandemics, lockdowns, government orders, or any similar situations that compromise the safety of the trekking experience may also necessitate a cancellation.

In the event of such a cancellation, TTH will provide you with a voucher equivalent to the amount you paid for the trek. This voucher can be redeemed for any of our treks within the next year, allowing you to still enjoy an adventure with us at a later date.

Note

  • The issuance of a voucher is not applicable in situations where you are required to descend from the trek for any reason. The trek leader may make the decision to send you down from the trek due to factors such as insufficient fitness level, symptoms of Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS), high blood pressure, exceeding the designated turn-around-time, health concerns, or if you are found smoking, drinking, or violating the rules set for the trek. In such cases, the provision of a voucher does not apply.

In the rare event that TTH shifts a trek:

We would like to emphasize that weather conditions in high-altitude areas are highly unpredictable and can undergo sudden changes at any time, irrespective of the day. Additionally, circumstances beyond our control, such as natural disasters, political unrest, pandemics, and lockdowns, may impact the feasibility of conducting a trek. In cases where we are unable to proceed with an event due to such circumstances that are beyond our direct control, we will make every effort to provide you with an alternative trek that is safer and more suitable.

In such situations, we will issue a voucher to offset the cost difference between the originally scheduled trek and the alternative trek. This voucher can be redeemed at any time within one year from the date of issue. Please note that a refund fee or reimbursement of the cost difference is not applicable in these cases.

  • Change of trek batch is dependent on the availability of seats in the batch

Choosing the right trek for a beginner can be a bit overwhelming as there are many factors to consider such as distance, elevation gain, terrain difficulty, weather, and time of year. Here are some tips that can help you choose the right trek for a beginner:

1. Determine fitness level: Assess the fitness level of the beginner to understand their physical capabilities. This will help you select a trek that is challenging but not too difficult.

2. Choose a well-traveled trail: A well-traveled trail will have more amenities such as signposts, water stations, and shelter. It is also safer as there will be other hikers on the trail.

3. Consider the length of the trek: For beginners, it is recommended to start with a shorter trek that can be completed in a day or two. This will help them get acclimatized to trekking and build their confidence.

4. Look for gradual elevation gain: Choose a trek with a gradual elevation gain rather than steep ascents. This will make the trek easier and more enjoyable.

5. Check the weather: Check the weather forecast before selecting a trek. Avoid treks during the monsoon season or winter when the trails can be slippery or dangerous.

6. Research the trail: Read about the trail to get an idea of the terrain, altitude, and difficulty level. This will help you select a trek that is suitable for the beginner.

7. Consult with an expert: If you are unsure about which trek to choose, consult our trek expert Mr. Nitin (+91 70600 59773) between 10 AM to 6 PM (Tuesday - Friday). Mr. Nitin will provide you valuable advice and guidance.

Overall, it is important to choose a trek that is enjoyable, challenging but not too difficult, and suitable for the beginner's fitness level and experience.

It is not recommended for a beginner to choose a difficult Himalayan trek. Trekking in the Himalayas can be physically and mentally challenging, especially if you are not used to the high altitude, steep slopes, and rugged terrain. Choosing a difficult trek without the proper experience, fitness level, and preparation can be dangerous and put you at risk of altitude sickness, injury, and other hazards.

If you are a beginner, it is recommended to start with an easier trek and gradually build up your skills and experience. This will help you understand the challenges of trekking in the Himalayas, and also prepare you physically and mentally for a more difficult trek in the future. It is also important to choose a trek that matches your fitness level, experience, and interest.
