Throughout the journey, trekkers are treated to breathtaking views of towering Himalayan peaks like Bandarpoonch and Swargarohini. If you're seeking an offbeat adventure and a genuine Himalayan challenge, Bali Pass is the perfect choice for you. Here, we'll explore all the reasons that make Bali Pass one of Uttarakhand's premier treks.

The base village Sankri is an adventure hub in itself. Sankri is not just the base for Kedarkantha Trek but also 11 other Himalayan treks including popular treks like Kedarkantha, Har Ki Dun, Phulara Ridge, Chainsheel Bugyal, Sarutal, Borasu Pass, Dhumdhar Kandi and more. The village is bustling with adventurers most of the time, ready to embark on their chosen Himalayan adventure.

Devsu Bugyal meadows

The alpine meadows of Devsu Thatch are just perfect. The lush green meadows are surrounded by towering peaks like Swargrohini and Kalanag, making a picture-perfect spot to admire the fineries of nature. Treks in Uttarakhand are popular for their bugyals and Devsu Bugyal is a prime example of it. The lush meadows are lined with tall trees that enhance its beauty. 

Beautiful campsites

In the Bali Pass Trek itinerary, the campsites are carefully selected to show you the true beauty of the Himalayas. The campsites are strategically placed to give you the best view so that you can form a profound connection with nature and at the same time, they are often placed near a water source to make it more convenient for you. Every morning you wake up in the campsites, you will witness the sun's rays casting a golden glow over the landscapes and the snow-covered mountains and the night sky paints brilliant pictures with a kaleidoscope of stars. The camping experience in Bali Pass is truly unique and gives you a great experience of trekking in the Himalayas.

Ancient villages

Along the Bali Pass trek, you will cross the ancient villages of Gangad and Osla. The villages are believed to be centuries-old, as old as the times of Mahabharata. Chatting with the locals you will get to know many interesting tales. The architecture of the villages showcases the traditional Himalayan architecture. Osla temple is a remarkable example of this.

Ruinsara Tal

Picture yourself strolling through verdant meadows on the Bali Pass Trek, when suddenly you stumble upon the breathtaking Ruinsara Tal, a serene glacial lake. The lake region is circled around by Rhododendron trees, which burst into a kaleidoscope of colour during the summer months. Take a moment to sit beside its pristine waters, explore the enchanting surroundings, and immerse yourself in the tranquility and majesty of the Himalayas. The Ruinsara campsite itself is equally stunning, nestled between the tranquil lake and the flowing waters of the Supin River.
