Day 8: Trek from Lower Damani Camp to Jankichatti via Yamunotri temple then same day drive to Dehradun

Distance – 06 km – 2/3 Hours journey

Mode of a journey – on foot 6 km taxi 175 km 

The trek from Lower Damani Camp to Jankichatti via Yamunotri Temple and then traveling to Dehradun by taxi on the same day is quite an ambitious plan, and it would involve a long and tiring day. Here’s what the route and schedule might look like:

Trekking Route:

  1. Lower Damani Camp (4,000 meters): You’ll start your day at Lower Damani Camp, which is situated at an altitude of around 4,000 meters (13,123 feet).
  2. Trek to Yamunotri Temple (3,293 meters): You’ll begin your trek downhill from Lower Damani Camp to Yamunotri, which is situated at an altitude of approximately 3,293 meters (10,801 feet). The trek involves descending along the trail and crossing picturesque landscapes.
  3. Yamunotri Temple: Visit the famous Yamunotri Temple, one of the Char Dham pilgrimage sites, and pay your respects to the deity. It’s essential to check the temple’s opening and closing times, as it might not be accessible at all hours.

Travel to Dehradun: After visiting the temple, you’ll need to travel to Dehradun. The distance between Yamunotri and Dehradun is considerable, and the journey is long and winding. The roads in the region can be narrow and sometimes in poor condition, so it may take several hours to reach Dehradun by taxi.

Considerations:

  • The drive from Yamunotri to Dehradun can take approximately 6 to 8 hours, depending on road conditions and traffic.
  • It’s a good idea to start early in the day to ensure you have enough time to complete the trek to Yamunotri, visit the temple, and then begin your journey to Dehradun.

This plan is feasible if you have made all the necessary transportation arrangements in advance, are physically fit to complete the trek, and are prepared for a long day of travel. Keep in mind that the trek and the long drive may be physically demanding, so it’s important to ensure you have enough time for rest and breaks during the journey.

  4. Pankaj bhandari

    Now from where shall i start…this guy kuldeep rawat is the best when its about trekking services, he always take care of everything like proper equipment, gear , camping , meals and yes the most important safety of trekkers….trust me his services are far ahead than indiahikes, thirophillia etc and m saying this from my experiences….when its about trek remember the name kuldeep rawat (himalayan hikers ) …this time i did bali pass summit with HH and it was not the best time to go bcoz snow had melted and only black ice and big stones were left before the summit point , it seemed that it was impossible for us to reach the summit point but the efforts of the crew of HIMALAYAN HIKERS made it possible….cheers and thanks to team HIMALAYAN HIKERS AKA KULDEEP RAWATA

  5. anurag

    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,

  6. Ritwik

    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.

  7. Sakshar Sarkar

    One of the most beautiful Himalayan trek. It has many things to offer like walking through a snow capped ridge, multiple river crossing, camping upon a snow desert with the magnificent view of Mount Swargarohini. Along with this, The special touch and carings of Himalayan Hikers made it more beautiful and a lifetime journey. Arrangements are extremely good and Staffs are so much help full undoubtedly. I must recommend Himalayan Hikers for any of the Himalayan Treks in India.

  8. Trisha Saha

    Did Bali Pass trek with our old friend Kuldeep Rawat( Himalayan Hikers). Would like to thank the entire team of Himalayan Hikers for their hospitality and tenderness. The team left no stone unturned to ensure the trek becomes the most memorable experience of our lives.

    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!!

    Go with Himalayan Hikers if you want one hell of a trekking experience.
