Overview

Kuari Pass + Pangarchula Trek is beautiful and popular trek. The Kuari pass is also known as Curzon's trail since the British viceroy, George Curzon, attempted crossing it and loved exploring this area. Though the pass is not very high it offers excellent views of Nanda Devi, Dunagiri and other Himalayan peaks. The Nanda Devi national park and the Rishi Ganga gorge are visible from the first day itself.

Highlights:

  • The lush green, infinitely unfolding meadow of the Gorsons, which can turn white anytime of the year, and as you move your head around, your eyes are gifted with grand views of 4 peaks of Chaukhamba, Neelkanth, Mana, Kamet, Hathi, Ghodi, Trishul, Nandaghunti, Nanda Devi, Dunagiri
  • Kuari pass, an ancient trading route.
  • Deep forest, its trees and animals
