    Kuari Pass Trek
    Trip Description

    Travel far enough and all the things which bind us to the tedious side of life no longer apply, we could be anyone; going anywhere. That’s when the doorway to Kuari Pass opens, being true to its meaning, nestled in the Garhwal Himalayas. 

    Kuari Pass trek is an alluring trekking spot for travellers and tourists from all around the world, including Europeans and Americans, and that too since the British Era. Also known as the Curzon Trail or the Viceroy Hunting Trail, the discovery of this trek dates back to British India. The trek was explored by Lord Curzon along with other travellers accompanying him in 1905, hence the name. 

    Kuari Pass trek trails along the River Ganga, starting at Joshimath and gradually ascending towards the summit, offers you the most breathtaking view of the majestic and the rarest Himalayan peaks. Mt. Nanda Devi is one such rare sight which you can witness via Kuari Pass trek along with other magnificent peaks including Kamet, Dronagiri, Trishul, Bertholi, Hathi Ghodi Parvat, Mana and Neelkanth. Standing at an altitude of 3876 m, the trek is an easy to moderate trail. 

    Although the trek is a delight for all seasons, the Kuari pass winter trek is an overwhelming experience altogether. Walking through the beautiful oak forests covered with layers of snow, camping in snow-clad meadows beside the frozen lakes, beholding the spectacular views of the snow-covered mountain peaks throughout the trek makes you feel like you are experiencing a magical tale. 

    The Kuari Pass Trek is an exquisite adventure for both the beginners and the trained trekkers to experience the Himalayas and unfold the treasures it beholds. Ranging from Gorson Bugyal to Auli, the trek is famous for its varied nature and scenic landscapes. Be it the vast green stretches of land, the enchanting rhododendrons, oak and deodar forests or the spectacular views that the trek proffers, it's all pure magic.
