An overview about this Trek
Bali pass was an old trekking route from the Tons river valley to the Yamuna river valley. It continues to attract trekkers during the monsoon season when the snow melts and the pass is approachable from both sides.The pass is more approachable from the Har-ki-Dun valley as the gradient is small and gives good time for the trekkers to acclimatize to the altitude. The trek starts from Sankri and passes through the Govind National Park, which is famous for its wild flowers. It also gives one an opportunity to visit the sacred lake at Ruinsara on the way and to explore the less travelled path over Yamunotri pass to Yamunotri temple.
The meadows near the lake are an ideal place to rest and explore the nearby peaks and passes. Another highlight of this trek is that it gives one the experience of camping above 4,000 m. The area is surrounded by Banderpoonch range and some of the famous peaks are Kalanag, Banderpoonch West and Ruinsara. This region was made popular by Jack Gibson, a teacher at the Doon school in the late 1940s. The surrounding peaks and glaciers in the Swargarohini Range and Banderpoonch range are a mountaineer’s delight.
Bali Pass is a breathtaking high altitude pass at 5000 mts offering amphitheater views of Kala Nag, Banderpoonch & Swargarohini peaks. The trek to Bali Pass offer mesmerizing Himalayan views that takes one through verdant meadows, lush green valleys, isolated and peculiar Jaunsari hamlets and deserted terrains to reach Bali Pass.
