The Kuari Pass trek is a fun mix of scenery and adventure. Kuari pass trek begins from Chamoli district in the Garhwal Himalayas, followed by a challenging trek through deep snowy terrains, rocks and steep slopes, to reach its peak.

The climb to The Kuari Pass, at 3900 m is all the excitement you will need! For those who do not wish to participate in the Pangarchula peak of Kuari pass trek. The trek is also called as “Lord Curzon” trek, as the trek was discovered by him. He was Viceroy of India. And He discovered this Kuari pass trek in 1905. He had the hobby of exploring nature and new places. that’s why he discovered the place and started his Journey from Ramni Village which lies on another side of Pass. His trail was all the way through Gorson Bugyal where you will find a lot of Golden Shrubs. People say that there is no end of Golden Shrubs at this place. so we entitled the trek as ” Golden Trail ”
