When Lord Curzon walked through the Kuari pass he would have surely been mesmerised by the view it offered. The pass which is situated at an altitude of 3871 m amsl, is flanked by beautiful massifs and beautiful views on all the sides, especially a glorious view of Mt Nanda Devi (7816 m).
Mt. Nanda Devi has been one of the most elusive mountains for explorers and mountaineers. The natural high altitude barriers around her, has made access to the mountain’s base very difficult, it’s as if the the Goddess Nanda Devi is surrounded by an impregnable fortress. The mountains and places in and around Kuari pass are draped in mythological mystique that one can savour while trekking on the trail to Kuari pass.
Kuari pass trek is one of the most sought after treks in Himalayas as it introduces you to beautiful meadows, takes you through dense Himalayan forest and towering Himalayan peaks.
