The Bali Pass trek is an ancient hiking route from the Tons Valley to the Yamuna Valley. It attracts hikers during the rainy season when the snow melts, and you can access the pass from both sides. This pass is more accessible from the valley of Har ki Dun, as the slope is slight and gives trekkers an excellent time to acclimatize to the high altitude. The trek starts from Sankri and goes through Govind National Park, famous for its wildflowers. It also offers the opportunity to visit the sacred lake at Ruinsara along the way and explore the less popular route through the Yamunotri Pass to the Yamunotri Temple.
The Bali Pass trek has a lot to offer besides isolation and the challenging climb to the pass. We are almost always surrounded by the mighty Swargarohini and Bandarpunch ranges. We will see Kalanag (Black Peak) closer. We will spend the whole day at Ruinsara glacial lake. Lake Ruinsara has unsurpassed beauty and grandeur; a mythological story is associated with it. The Dev Thach alpine meadow in the middle of the Ruinsara forest is something to look out for.
Lake Ruinsara has an unsurpassed beauty, and you will stroll through the two delightfully beautiful meadows of Devsu Thatch and Thanga. One of our camps will be at the waterfall, and the other will be above 4000 meters. We have a chance to see some of the wild animals of the Uttarakhand Himalayas – monals, the Himalayan ibex and the endangered brown bear. Regarding one of the most unexplored routes in the Indian Himalayas, the Bali Pass treks offer an extraordinary adventure if you are looking for an offbeat trek.
Towards the end of the trek through the Bali Pass, we will see the source of the Yamunotri River and visit the sacred temple of Yamunotri Devi. Bali Pass is a kaleidoscope of vibrant natural beauty.
