Trekking Routes : Rishikesh – Auli – Chitrakantha – Kuari Pass – Dakhwani – Pana – Ramni – Ghat – Srinagar – Rishikesh
Among the several things that Lord Curzon did in India, the hands-down winner is exploration and popularising of a marquee trek route starting from Joshimath to Kuari Pass in the Garhwal Himalayas. At an altitude of 4264 meters, Kuari Top is like an amphitheater where some of the stalwart peaks of Himalayas take the stage. The 7000 meters club includes the Kamet (7756m), Trishul (7120m), Chaukhamba (7128m), and the great divine peak of Nanda Devi (7817m) and its twin Nanda Devi East (7434m). More peaks make an equally imposing appearance – Nanda Ghunti, Hathi Ghoda Parbat, Neelkanth, Dronagiri, Mukut Parbat, Mana, Rishi Pahad, and Changbang, to name a few.
Trek to Kuari Pass proceeds through small remote Himalayan villages. It will surely be a great way to get acquainted with the life of the mountain folks. The trees here are ablaze in the yellow-orange colors of autumn, striking a deep contrast to the blue-brown mountains and the snow caps. On this trek, one walks through the dense jungles of Oak and Deodar trees.
