Bali Pass trek is a good and high altitude trek. We have had a lot of fun doing this trek, all the staff of the Himalayan Hikers team are very good and helpful,
Last June I have done this offbeat virgin trek, Bali pass 4950. I always do my little bit of research about the place and the people. And my inquisitiveness lead me to Himalayan Hikers. I would like to thank the entire team of Himalayan Hikers for their hospitality and tenderness. The team left no stones unturned to make this trip most memorable experience of my life.
Bali pass offered me everything… Beautiful landscape, green Meadows, adrenaline rush and snow white mountains. But the experience would not have been so rewarding without the appetizing food, meticulous guidelines from Himalayan Hikers. Gangaji and Mahendra ji made my Bali pass trek one journey worth cherishing life time.
Forever indebted for this trek. Here’s wishing more journeys with Himalayan Hikers in future.

Awesome landscapes, beautiful meadows, adrenaline rush while walking on snow peaked mountain edges, etc is what Bali pass trek offered us. However, the experience would not have been so rewarding without the appetizing food, our guide Janak ji, other support staffs(Suresh,Kamlesh,Laksman,Arvind,Ganeshji) .These made our Bali Pass trek one kickass journey and something worth cherishing for lifetime!!
