Overview

Lord Curzon went up to the Kuari-pass in 1905 and since he made the trek, it was named after him as 'Curzon Trail'. Kuari Pass means 'doorway'. Kuari pass trek is one of the well-known treks in Uttarakhand, located at an altitude of 4268 m in Garhwal Himalayas. It is among the most scenic excursions that you will ever take through the Himalayan Mountains that end with a mesmerising view of the Kamet, Dronagiri, Trishul, Bertholi, Hathi Ghodi Parvat, Mana and Nanda Devi summit in all its glory. Check out the detailed itinerary below for more information.

  • Along this path, the Hathi-Ghori peaks will be manifesting gloriously along with Dronagiri now somewhat flipped to the side
  • Overnight camp stay at the site
  • The fourth day is the summit day, likely to span 8-10 hours depending on the group’s pace
  • You need to gear up appropriately for high snow and squalling wind on the ridges today
  • There is going to be no water sources found on the way today, so carry enough to sustain you through
