Kuari Pass Trek Experience ::--

Lord Kurzon made the trek to Kuari pass , and since then it has come to be known as Curzon's trail. It is very popular among European and American Travelers. In 1905 Lord Curzon reached Kuari pass from Ghat via Ramni. Today many trekkers prefer to undertake the trek in the reverse direction. The main attraction of Curzon's trails is the majestic view of the twin peaks of Nanda Devi , Kamet , Dronagiri and Hathi-Ghodi Parvat. The Pass (Khal) is approached through a narrow goat track at an elevation of 4265 mts. Standing at the Kwari-Pass facing north, the vision sweeps from the gorges of Trishul in the east to the peaks of Kedarnath in the west - the Kedarnath, Chaukhamba, Nilkhantha, Kamet, Gauri Parbat, Hathi Parbat, Nandadevi, Bethartoli, Dunagiri, etc. all arranged in a fantastic arc- southwards the foothills stretch wave upon on to dim haze of the distant plains one of the most interesting trek in the Garhwal area.The trek passes through forests of oak and conifer, bamboo and birch, teeming with a variety of animals and birds life. A trekker might even be lucky enough to come across leopard pugmarks or a Himalayan black bear on this trail. Lord Curzon went up to the Kwari-pass in 1905 and hence the trek is named after him as "Corzon Trail".
