Day 01 : DEHRADOON to SANKRI (1920m) - 200 km (7hrs)

The drive from Dehradoon to Sankri passes through the town of mussorie and the villages of nainbagh, damta, naugaon, purola, mori and netwar. We enter the forest (Govind National Park) after Netwar and the final 20km are through the forest. The drive to Sankri is very beautiful, past pine and deodar forest.Overnight in guest houses in Sankri.


Day 02 : SANKRI (1920m) to SEEMA (2560m)via TALUKA (1800m) - 14km (5hrs)

Post breakfast we are transported from Sankri to Taluka. The drive is a bit bumpy. The trek commences from Taluka on a stony path. With the river Supin gushing through rapids beside us, under the shade of walnut, pine and other trees, the walk is quite pleasant. Often the passing villagers greet us on the way.

The path crosses over a few streams which merge with Supin. After a few hours of walk the village of Gangad can be seen towards the left, across the river. We continue our hike and after about an hour's walk, the quaint village of Osla unfolds itself. Seema is a tiny settlement opposite to the river from Osla. We set camp here or stay in a hut with a local family in the village.


Day 03 : Seema (2,560 m) to Roiltia or Waterfall camp (3,350 m), 6-7 hours hike: 13 km

On this day, we continue along the true right of the valley along the Tons river. The trail ascends through the fields and climbs high above the confluence of the Tons and Ruinsara gad. The walk through the forest is beautiful, with Kalanag (6387) visible straight ahead in the valley. We camp beside the stream and close to the waterfall.


Day 04 : Waterfall to Ruinsara lake (3,600 m), 2 hours hike: 4 km

We ascend into the Ruinsara valley. There is a stark difference in the vegetation with pine and fir giving way to birch and rhododendron. Ruinsara lake is a lovely lake surrounded by meadows and rhododendron bushes. It is considered sacred by the locals. Overnight in camps near the lake.



Today we rest near the lake and spent the day exploring the nearby glaciers and valleys. This will help us to acclimatize before the next day's climb to the pass. We reach kyarkoti which is the base camp for black peak (kalanag) and dumdar kandi pass. By evening we are back at the camp.


Day 06 : RUINSARA LAKE TO GODARI (4100m) - 4km (5hrs)

We start the day early so as to reach before afternoon. We camp below the pass along the glacial moraine. This is the one of the best locations for a camp with the valley below and the pass behind you. Camping at this altitude is a new experience which very few treks offer.


Day 07 : GODARI (4100m) TO UPPER DHAMNI (4000m) VIA BALI PASS (4800m) - 15km (7hrs)

We start very early today. The trail heads down south, over the ridge. It is a fairly short but steep climb up to the Bali pass on the southern ridge. A lot of glacial scree will be encountered here. We reach the top of the pass by 8am. You get a gorgeous view of various peaks from here especially of the Panchachuli peaks on a clear day. From the pass, we descend down into the alpine zone and reach the camping grounds of upper dhamni. This place has water nearby.



We descend to the forested trail leading to Yamunotri. After a quick visit to the famous shrine of Yamunotri, we make our way down the conventional pilgrim trail to hanuman chatti. Overnight in guesthouses in Yamunotri or in Hanuman Chatti.




This is the final day of the trip and we drive back to Dehradoon.
