Journey Through Majestic Landscapes on Bali Pass Trek with the searching souls

The Bali Pass trek is a unique experience for those seeking the raw grandeur of the Himalayas. This exhilarating trail connects Har Ki Dun valley with Yamunotri, offering an almost exploratory journey. Along the way, trekkers will pass through the serene Ruinsara Valley and the lush meadows of Devsu Thach, where the undisturbed beauty of nature will captivate them.

As the Bali Pass trek progresses, the scenery transforms from verdant greenery to an alpine zone. At an altitude of 16,207 ft, the Bali Pass Trek presents a 360-degree panoramic view of the Bandarpoonch, Kalanag, and Swargarohini peaks. However, it’s important to note that this reward comes at a cost, as the trek is challenging and recommended for experienced trekkers only.

Is Bali pass trek for me? Here are all the reasons why you should plan you next trek to Bali pass:

  • The Bali Pass trek begins with a visit to the ancient villages of Gangad and Osla, where the Himachali architecture of the temples at Osla is particularly captivating.
  • The Bali Pass trek continues with a surprise at the alpine meadows of Devsu Thach in the middle of the Ruinsara Forest. The setting is picture-perfect, with tall trees and the peaks of Swargarohini and Kalanag in the background, making it an ideal spot for camping.
  • The trail from Devsu Thach to Ruinsara Lake is both beautiful and challenging, with a narrow valley and an array of alpine flowers across the riverbank.
  • The Ruinsara Lake itself is a special glacial lake, surrounded by the beautiful mountain ranges of Swargarohini. The meadows around the lake are pristine and peaceful.
  • The Bali Pass trek also includes a challenging approach to the pass, which is best done in either the pre- or post-monsoon seasons. Trekkers who enjoy high-altitude pass traverses will feel at home.

History has it…..

The Bali Pass Trek derives its name from Bali, the legendary monkey king who ruled over the Kishkindha mountain and triumphed over even the infamous demon Ravan, as celebrated in the Indian festival of Dusshera. Although Bali holds great significance in Hindu mythology, it is unclear why a pass in Uttarakhand, located in the north of India, bears his name since Kishkindha mountain is situated in south India, specifically Karnataka. 

Upon inquiry, we were informed that Bali had journeyed through these mountains and vanquished a demon at Odari, hence the pass was named after him.
