Kuari Pass Trek

  Trekking Programme Duration : 10 Days


Named after a British Viceroy who trekked parts of the Curzon Trail, and renamed after Independence as the Nehru Trail, the long route over Kuari Pass (4268 mtrs.) in northeastern Garhwal provides some stunning mountain views. Traversing the high ranges without entering the permanent snowline, the ten-day trail starts on the border with Kumaon at Gwaldam above the River Pindar and ends around 150 kms. north, at the hot springs of Tapovan in the Dhauli Ganga valley near Joshimath. Numerous variations and shorter trails approaching the pass include one of around 24 kms. from Auli. The whole route, and connected hikes, is mapped out on the Leomann map of Kumaon-Garhwal (sheet 8 in the India Series). The best time to go is from May to June and mid-September to November.

An ideal expedition for those not equipped to tackle glacial terrain, the trail over Kuari Pass follows alpine meadows and crosses several major streams, skirting the outer western edge of the Nanda Devi National Park. Along the way you'll get excellent views of Trishul (7120 mtrs.), the trident, Nanda Ghunti (6309 mtrs.), and the elusive tooth-like Changabang (6864 mtrs.), while to the far north on the border with Tibet rises the unmistakeable pyramid of Kamet (7756 mtrs.).
