Kuari Pass Trek – on Curzon’s trail:

At present it is unfamiliar to trace old school classy Himalayan trails like Kuari Pass trek on “Curzon’s trail. It is about slowly gaining altitude from one camp to another, crossing valleys to reach Kuari pass and get contrasting views. Kuari Pass on Curzon’s Trail trek is one such less trodden and pristine camping trek. In addition to that, don’t forget that Kuari pass, located centrally in Garhwal Himalayas is one filthily panorama rich trail.

Why Kuari Pass trek on “Curzon’s trail”?

The Old School model:

In this trail you start from an interior village road head, walk through forests, crossing valleys and ridges, ups and downs to camp to next village. This full camping trail has three villages to camp, Ramni, Jhinji and Pana, last two still out of any motor road connectivity. Surrounded by green hills and valleys, occasionally you will get high mountain views as well. This trail certainly gives you a better chance to get an essence of local Pahadi culture, lifestyle and hardship. As you will be trekking inside treeline for a while, so it is easy to understand that you will walk inside varied forests of Rhododendrons, Pines, Maples and Oak. It is a no hurry to reach the top trail while relishing camps.

The contrast:

After crossing the meadows once you reach Kuari Pass ((3850 m/12630 ft) from south side, a different landscape with high mountain panorama unfolds. This is a change what you expect on a trail, where you actually cross a pass and descent to the other side of the range. This is the exploratory and original route taken by British Viceroy George Curzon (Commonly known as Lord Curzon) in the beginning of 20th century and referred Kuari Pass on Curzon’s trail.

The shorter variant is the North side of Kuari Pass, Joshimath to Joshimath or commonly referred Winter Kuari Pass trek. After crossing Kuari pass you will descent to Joshimath via Tali Gurson and Auli. The idea here is to cross Kuari pass from southern lower valleys of Nandakini basin and over Kuari Pass to reach the confluence of Alaknanda and Dhauli Ganga valley. In a nutshell this trail gives you the opportunity to actually cross a pass and descent to the other side of the mountain range and ridges to witness a different vista altogether.

The challenge:

Almost everyday descents and ascents to reach the next campsite makes it strenuous than the shorter version (a.k.a. Winter Kuari pass) or other easy grade treks. However this trail gives fantastic opportunity to acclimatise yourself in the mountains, before leaving tree line. This is a solid choice for you who want to camp in pristine environment and don’t mind to walk some more to test yourself.

The campsites:

In contrary to the shorter version, Curzon’s trail has more variety in camping ground. You will camp around village, inside pine forests at Tali and on the fringe of the treeline at Dakwani. It would be good to mention here that on Winter Kuari Pass, only 2 camping grounds are allowed. One is Tali Forest camp, and the other one is Gulling.

First three nights we will camp around or off village, with the proximity of water. Here are the campsites of Dakwani and Tali forest camp.

So, Curzon’s trail is undeniably a not to miss trek for you who have already done probably one or two popular routes. Furthermore it is more a natural trail to initiate hiking and camping habit for the beginners. Summing up, it is not a 3/4 days 20 odd kilometre hike to aiming a summit.

*** You need to reach Haridwar, Day 1 morning (by 6 am) or the previous night. Return to Haridwar on Day 8 evening (by 9 pm).  Arrange your tickets for inward journey and return from Haridwar accordingly. We can arrange transportation from Haridwar to Ramni and return from Joshimath but NOT included in the TREK FEE. You pay directly to the driver shared equally with other trekkers. ***

Note: To attempt Pangarchulla peak you will require one day extra, while staying at Tali Jungle camp and attempting the peak and return. This is possible for customised private treks by adding  a day, but not inside our usual Fixed Departure treks.

Best time to go for Kuari pass trek on Curzon’s trail:

To get the most out of the trail you should trek in following two seasons:

  1. Summer: Month of May and June
  2. Fall/Autumn: Month of September to November

This trail normally remains closed during mid December to mid April , as deposited snow makes conditions impassable for main logistics and horses.

Peak views from Kuari Pass:

From Kuari Pass the view is one of the best panoramas in the Himalayas. All the peaks in the upper Dhauliganga valley, Badrinath valley and Chaukhamba/Satopanth valley peaks are visible. Hati & Ghora Parvat, Mukut, Rishi, Kamet, Dronagiri, Nilgiri Parvat, Ratavan, Neelkanth, Mana and Chaukhamba are notable peaks. From Tali, Gurson Bugyal and Auli you can see gracious Nanda Devi. Gurson Bugyal considered one of the most beautiful alpine meadows in Garhwal and offers stunning view points of gigantic Himalayan massifs throughout. Auli is revered for its close view of Mt. Nanda Devi and the cable car ride down to Joshimath.

Adding Pangarchulla peak climb:

This is a very good idea if you are a group of trekkers who are planning your customised private trek ( at least 10 members to make it economic). You need an additional day for Pangarchulla summit ~ 4550 m/14925 ft). However this is a strenuous day and you will need to push hard to reach the summit. After reaching Kuari pass, you will descent and camp at Tali. Next day very early morning start for Pangarchulla summit. latest by 3 am. It may take 5/6 hours to climb the peak from the camp and another 4 hrs to return, making it a 10/12 hours long strenuous day. Pangarchulla summit is the highest point of the surrounding area and the views from the peak are captivating along with lower valley views. Next day you can directly descent to Joshimath via Gurson and Auli.

I had the privilege of accomplishing a trek with HT. It was a wonderful experience therein. The staff was extremely helpful and courteous. And as for the management, they were always more than ready to help with any information required. I am looking forward to plan more treks with HT in the near future.
