In order to reach the Seema campsite, we will start our trekking from Taluka which is a 12km trek. We will trek on an even surface through thick forests of chestnuts, willows, walnuts, chinars, and several other varieties of conifer trees. Remember this trekking stretch is going to be fruitful for you because it will warm you up for the further treks. During trekking, don’t be misguided by different alternative routes that lead to several villages of Jaunsar. After trekking for almost an hour along the river, you will reach Seema where camps will be set up as well as stay for the night. During the winter months, the path is covered with snow and slush.

Get ready for a long day trekking after having breakfast. After walking past Seema, you need to follow the track on the right. Make sure you do not take the bridge over Supin River on the left because it will lead you to Har Ki Dun Valley. Day 3 is all about moderate to difficult slopes and you can even see the confluence of Har Ki Dun. While trekking, you will also get the chance to watch the mixed scenery of meadows as well as forests. Seema to Rainbasera is a long 9km trek that involves time of almost 4-5 hours. As you will move toward Devsu Bughyal, you will watch that the path ascends and gets sharp. Also, get ready to explore the striking sights of the Kala Nag which is called Black Peak. The Devsu Bugyal meadows are set amongst the Ruinsara forest and while ascending towards Devsu Bugyal, you will get the chance to see a variety of beautiful Himalayan wildflowers and foliage.

Day 5 is a short trek from Ruinsara Tal to Odari that is about 4km. It will take almost 4 to 5 hours in order to reach Odari. The trek begins with a descent to the Supin River along with dense shrubbery. Once you cross the river through a bridge, you will incline to a small pasture and continue the trek in the south-east direction along the river. After you trek for an hour, you will reach Odari.

The trek from Odari to Bali camp is 4km and the camp is located at a height of 4680m. As you get closer to the Pass, the difficulty of the trek will increase gradually. From Odari camp, try carrying at least 2 liters of water with you because there are no water sources on the way.

Today, you will be camping at an altitude of 15,100 ft which makes it important for you to stay hydrated. To avoid the chances of experiencing acute mountain sickness, you need to stay active. The ridge that we will trek is sharply inclined at 60 degrees, making it a strenuous climb even though the distance is short. As you reach the height, the temperature starts dropping rapidly. 

Night stay will be arranged in the camps and you will be served hot lip-smacking food. Remember this is the peak of the trek, making it important for you to carry all the trekking gear. You will also enjoy an outstanding sight of silvery snowfield here

While trekking, you will get an excellent sight of Bandarpoonch, Black peak, and Yamunotri side as well. On the way, we will provide packed lunch to all the trekkers.

The complete track is filled with snow and you need to use the skills that your trek leader has taught you to trek in the snow. From the base camp, it takes the time of almost 2 to 3 hours to reach the summit. After reaching the top, you will enjoy the superb mountain sights that you might have never witnessed in your life.  After spending some time at the top, we will arrive at the Lower Dhamni campsite. Night stay will be scheduled in the tents. During your stay at Dhamni, get ready to experience the beauty of nature at its best.

This is the last day of the trek and the descent down is quite easy when compared to the other days. The initial track is through the forest which then merges into a concrete path. The trail is 4.5 km long with a mild ascent till Yamunotri. To reach Yamunotri, will take the time of almost 1 hour and 30 minutes. Once you reach Yamunotri, you can also take a dip in the sulphur hot springs of Yamunotri. Try taking a bath in the hot water springs because this will definitely take away the pain in your legs. From the shrine of Yamunotri, we will choose the pilgrim's route to Jaan Ki Chatti which is almost 8km. Here the track is easy & well-defined as well. During the trek, you will be served with a packed lunch. With lots of new experiences and beautiful memories, your trekking journey will come to an end at Janki chatti.
