Q: 1 How difficult is the Bali Pass Trek?

A: 1 The Bali Pass Trek is considered a moderate to difficult level trek, suitable for experienced trekkers. The trek involves long hours of hiking on steep and rocky terrain, with several challenging sections, including a high-altitude pass crossing. Altitude sickness is also a concern as the trek involves climbing to a maximum altitude of 4950 meters. However, the trail is designed to give your body enough time to acclimate to the surroundings.

Q: 2 How fit do I need to be for the Bali Pass Trek?

A: 2 To undertake the Bali Pass Trek, you need to be in good physical and mental health. You should have a reasonable level of fitness to endure long hours of hiking on steep, rugged terrain at high altitudes. A typical day on the Bali Pass Trek involves walking for 6-8 hours with several uphill and downhill sections. It is advisable to prepare for the trek by doing cardio exercises such as running, cycling, and swimming to increase your cardiovascular endurance. Strength training exercises such as squats, lunges, and leg presses can also help build lower body strength, which is essential for the trek. In addition to physical fitness, mental strength and determination are also crucial for successfully completing the Bali Pass Trek. The trek can be mentally challenging, especially during the high-altitude pass crossing, and it is important to have a positive mindset and determination to overcome any obstacles that may arise. Prior trekking experience, especially at high altitudes, is also recommended.

If by a rare consequence Himalayan Daredevils calls off/cancels a trek:

At Himalayan Daredevils, we almost never call off or cancel our treks. But in the rare event that we do call off or cancel a trek due to any unforeseen circumstances or natural catastrophes like continuous rain or snow, thunderstorms, snowstorms, landslides, floods, earthquakes, or any other natural calamity that prevents us from carrying out a trek in a safe manner, unforeseeable circumstances like local riots, curfews, pandemics, lockdowns, government orders, or any such situations that prevents a safe trekking experience, Himalayan Daredevils will issue a voucher summing up to the same amount as your trek fee.

The voucher can be redeemed on any of the treks over a period of the next year.


If the entirety of your group fails to reach or cross the pickup point, or abandons the trek, due to any unforeseen circumstances like snowfall or heavy rainfall, landslide, and such, in such a case the voucher will not be issued. You can, however, choose to repeat the trek with us

The voucher is also not issued if for any reason you have to come down from the trek. The trek leader may send you down from the trek, owing to reasons like lack of fitness, AMS, blood pressure, turn-around-time, health issues, or if you are found smoking/ drinking, or breaking the rules of the trek. Vouchers are issued only when the whole trek is cancelled or called off on behalf of Himalayan Daredevils.

In the rare event that Himalayan Daredevils shifts a trek:

As we mention always, weather conditions at high altitudes are extremely unpredictable and can change at any time of any day. Also, situations like natural calamities or political unrest, pandemics and lockdowns, etc are out of our control and if an event cannot run under any such circumstances that we do not directly have control over then we will try to give you an alternative trek, which means your trek will be shifted from one trek to another, which will be safer and more favorable.

In these cases, a voucher is issued to mitigate the difference in cost between the two treks. You can redeem the voucher at any time over a period of one year from the date of issue. A refund fee or refund of the difference is not applicable.
