Attractions During KUARI PASS TREK - Premium

1. The Kuari Pass Trek, explored and popularised by Lord Curzon, is an easy-to-moderate trek that begins at Joshimath and culminated at the Kuari Pass in the Garhwal Himalayas. 2. The trek takes you to an altitude of 4264 meters.
3. The best part about this trek is that whether you’re a beginner or a seasoned trekker, it will be an experience like none other with gorgeous, up-close and personal views of some of India’s most well-known mountain ranges including Nanda Devi (25,673 ft) and Dronagiri (23,182 ft) in whichever season you visit in.
4. On the way, from the 7000-metre mark, you get to experience a whole lot of peaks - such as Kamet, Trishul, Chaukamba, the Nanda Devi, among others. They almost appear to be right in front of you the whole way, it’s truly a very humbling feeling to bear witness to such old and magnificent peaks.
5. During the winter months, the snow is an added bonus with it covering the Oak trees and carpeting the forest land, transforming it into a winter wonderland. Although, it’s absolutely wonderful all the while it’s available from March to December - each season giving you different views from snow carpeted terrain to lush green forests with golden trees.
6. Throughout this marquee trek route, you will get to walk through ‘Bugyals’, beautiful meadows in the Himalayas, an experience one shouldn’t miss out on owing to their beauty, peace, and calm.
7. You will get to visit Auli, a location known for its skiing slopes that are unparalleled, in the winter Kuari Pass.

Overview Of KUARI PASS TREK - Premium

The trek itself begins in the Chamoli district of the Himalayas at the basecamp of Dhak near Joshimath, situated within the Nanda Devi National Park, proceeding through remote villages through the Curzon trail — a great way to familiarise yourself with local culture and habits.
The entire experience starts at the Kashmiri Gate McDonalds (re: ‘How To Reach’), where a bus will take you to Dhak through Rishikesh and then to Joshimath.
From Joshimath, after a night of rest and great food, we shall proceed to Dhak. From Dhak we shall head to Tapoban, which is the base camp for this trek around 7 km away from Dhak.
After resting here for a bit, we shall continue onto Karchhi village which is where the Kuari Pass trek actually starts from.
It is a 6-day trek (Including travel from Rishikesh)

Safety & Precautions for KUARI PASS TREK - Premium

The whole route through Kuari Pass is well marked and has well trodden routes. The ascents are gradual and the campsites are well placed at a suitable distance from each other. There are multiple exit points available for those who do not wish to complete the trek if it proves to be too difficult.
Perhaps, we would say, the section from Tali Campsite to Gorson Bugyal is the only bit to watch out for as it is characterised by narrow trails and has a lot of undulations. This is even more difficult when there is snow. It is recommended that this whole stretch be traversed at a slow pace, with the trekker ensuring that they maintain a good footing, in a single file line (one behind the other) with no one overtaking anyone.

The maximum altitude is of 12, 500 ft. with a climb of over 6,300 ft in the first three days. This means that you might suffer from Altitude Mountain Sickness (AMS). Here it is important that you let yourself acclimatise and climb at a steady pace, not pushing yourself too much, hydrate regularly and take enough rest at campsights.
Apart from this, ensure that your gear is in proper shape so as to avoid any cold-based injuries.
