Detail Itinerary

Day 1 Dehradun - Sankri

Start your journey from Dehradun. our Pickup point is from Dehradun ISBT, Dehradun Railway station. The first stop before Bali pass trek begins is the base village Sankri. It is a small hamlet of Uttarkashi that lies in Govind Wildlife Sanctuary. The drive from Dehradun to Sankri will take you through scenic places like. Kempty waterfalls, Nainbagh, Mussoorie etc. It is surrounded by peaks of Swargrohini and other Greater Himalayan peaks.

Day 2 Sankri - Taluka - Seema - ( Drive - 12 Kms | Trek - 14 kms)

A Swift 12 km jeepable road connects Sankti to Taluka. The mild trail will take you through the thick forests of chestuts, walnuts, and chinars. Taluka village is perched at an alatitude of 2,410 meters above sea level and the trekking route from here to seema is at the right side of the supin river.Cross the wooden bridges hanging over the streams and climb uphill while trekking, don't be misguided by a couple of alternative routes that lead to the diffrent villages of jaunsar. on completing the 8 km trek, you will come across the pritine Gangad village ormaented by the unique wooden houses on the left side of the river. it takes 2 hours to reach seema from here. for accomdation, at seema.

Day 3 Seema - Roiltia or Waterfall camp (3,350 m) - 6-7 hours trek

Leaving the last of human settlements behind, we continue along the true left of the valley along the river Supin. Supin merges with Rupin near Netwar village to form Tons, which is the biggest tributary of river Yamuna. An ascend through deodar trees leads us to a beautiful meadow – Devsu Thatch. This 1km expanse of green land is set against the looming Swargarohini ranges. We can also see Kalanag (Black Peak) (6387m) straight ahead. On our left, we can see Har Ki Dun Valley. At its bottom lies the confluence of Har Ki Dun and Ruinsara rivers. After descending from the meadow, we enter the Ruinsara valley. At the end of today's trek, we camp beside the stream close to the waterfall locally known as Roiltigad or Roiltia.

Day 4 Roiltia to Ruinsara lake (3,600 m)- 2 hours trek

Today's journey is going to take in under 2 hours even at a slow pace. And within this hike itself we notice a stark change in vegetation. Pine and fir trees give way to birch and rhododendron trees. The thick forest we trudge through is frequented by the endangered Himalayan brown bear. If we are very lucky, we might spot this rare and elusive creature. We then reach one of the highlights of the trek — Ruinsara Tal, an alpine tarn, surrounded by lush Rhododendron trees, with their distinct pink bloom in the summers. We will be left enchanted by this sacred lake in the Uttarakhand Himalayas. It is one of the trio of lakes in the Garhwal region, the other two lakes being Marinda and Maldaru. We will be camping overnight near the lake.

Day 5 Ruinsara Tal - Bali Base camp (Odari) ( Trek - 6 Kms)

We start the day early so as to reach our destination before afternoon. We descend down to the shallow river bed, cross over to the opposite bank and walk uphill to another beautiful meadow – Thanga. This meadow also offers awe-inspiring views of the seemingly omnipresent Swargarohini ranges. Kyarkoti valley lies towards the left. Steep and gradual mixed ascent. Limited source of water. river crossing by making human chain. Odari means a naturally made rock cave. it is believed that Bali (Hanuman's brother) stayed in Odari for one night. Hot lunch at the campsite. Stay in tent.

Day 6 Odari (4,100m) - Bali pass Base Camp

Even though this day seems shorter, it is not easy. There will steep climb on 60 degrees inclined path. It is like a ridge walk with loose rocks and scree. The trail is also laden with stones making it more difficult. Make sure you take enough rest and drink water. The height gain is significant, therefore, take proper precautions to avoid AMS. The temperatures at night tend to go below subzero degrees. It is recommended to be prepared for the cold. After the strainful, rest in tents.

Day 7 Bali Pass Base camp - Balipass - Damini Forest Camping Ground

You can consider this as the summit day. Today you will be crossing the Bali Pass to reach Lower Dhamni. Eat full for sufficient energy for the long day. The trail to Bali pass is steep and has lots of snow. There follow the path broken your guides only. There is no need for roping up but wear microspikes if required. After a steep climb of 2-3 hours, you will reach the top of the pass. The pass is only 10 feet wide and 30 feet wide. The pass is the high point you will feel like standing on a mountain top. Relish the 360- degree view of Swargarohini, Banderpooch and Garhwal peaks. Enjoy the views of Yamnotri valley on the right. Make the most of the sights and the moment. Hold your breath for the descend, because the actual thrill will begin now.

Day 8 Upper Dhamni (4,000 m) to Yamunotri to Dehradun. (Drive 170km)

We descend further to a forested trail. This path leads us to the famous shrine of Yamunotri with the glorious Bandarpunch in its background.
