Tour's Location

Bali Pass Trek, Yamnotri Range, Uttarakhand, India

Will there be water sources on the way? Will two liters of water be enough?

Our campsites are pitched near water sources. For your day’s trek, two liters of water should be enough. You will find water sources on the trek to refill your water bottles. Your trek leader will brief you about these before starting the day’s trek.

What is the washroom/toilet facilities like on the trek?

During the trek, toilet tents will be set up along each campsite. A toilet tent will have a deep pit, where one can answer nature’s call. There will be a mound of soil and a shovel to cover it up. These are dry toilets, where you’ll have to use toilet paper. This is the most hygienic and convenient way to answer nature’s call in the wild. Please use plain toilet paper and refrain from using wet wipes since these are not biodegradable.

What if it rains while trekking?

If it starts raining while you’re trekking, we will continue on the trail as planned. Your poncho should protect you from the rain. Carry a backpack cover for extra protection from rain for your belongings.

When it gets really cold can I consume alcohol?

Alcohol is dangerous in extreme cold, especially at high altitudes. Contrary to what people believe, alcohol does not make you warmer. Instead, it opens your pores, making your body colder. Moreover, it dehydrates you very quickly. Hence consumption of alcohol is absolutely prohibited on all Nomad Adventures treks. Anyone found with alcohol is quickly removed from the trek. Smoking, similarly, is not allowed on Nomad Adventures treks.

Are trek poles, jackets and other equipment available for rent from Nomad Adventures?

No, but there are shops on the base camp from where you can rent shoes, jackets and trek poles, headlights etc.

Do I need special snow shoes on this trek?

You don’t need special snowshoes. A good waterproof trekking shoe is sufficient for the trek. When there is snow, we provide micro spikes and gaiters.

Why is the trekking pole necessary?

A trekking pole gives you stability and balance and helps reduce fatigue.

What is the age limit?

The minimum age limit is 8 years. However, minors aged between 8 to 17 should be accompanied by their parents and guardians.

Can I take my child along on this trek?

Bali Pass Trek is a moderate to difficult level trek and it requires trekkers to be physically fit. The minimum age eligibility is 8+ years. As a parent or guardian, if you feel that your child can adapt to the conditions of the mountains and would be able to walk every day as required, then indeed, yes!

Is there a mobile network on this trek? And, what about charging points?

The last electricity charging point would be in Sankri. You’ll get only the Bsnl/Airtel network over there. However, come prepared for the possibility of power cuts at Sankri. It is good to carry your power banks and extra batteries for your camera.

I am solo female trekker. Do I need to share a tent with a male?

No, Female Trekkers share Room/Tent with female co-trekkers and the same applies to others.

Is it safe to trek with Nomad Adventures?

All high-altitude treks come with their share of risks. We pay utmost importance to the safety of trekkers. While we do our bit to ensure a trekker is safe, we also expect any trekker who is enrolling with us to know what could go wrong, and if it does, how to tackle it.

Can I leave travelling clothes behind and collect them after the trek?

We won't have a facility at the base camp for excess luggage. This is because you will be descending to Janaki chatti. Please carry all your belongings.

Is Diamox advisable?

No, but in case you are having so please consult your doctor because there are lots of myths about Diamox.

Is there an option to offload my backpack?

If you want to offload your rucksack, you will have to inform us in advance so that the necessary arrangements are made. You will be charged per day for offloading your rucksack. If you decide on the spot then the charges are higher than the usual.
