• Trip introduction

    The Kuari Pass winter trek is one of the most gorgeous treks in the Himalayas, and is suitable for fit beginners looking for a bit of a challenge. In the winter months, the upper parts of the trail are buried in snow.

    This 6-day snow trek to Kuari Pass gets more challenging as you go along, and you'll end with a couple of days of steep climbing. The fourth day of the trek is one of the toughest, when you'll climb a steep slope through oak and rhododendron forests to get to Khulara camp. This is at an elevation of 11,122 feet and is one of the most picturesque campsites. If you're lucky, you might even see a Himalayan Bear or a snow leopard.


    This trek offers you a combination of spectacular locations and the thrill of trekking in the winter. Thanks to the height gain, you can expect to see views that few other treks can offer: rose-gold dawn skies in the mountains, untouched pine and oak forests covered in snow, and iconic peaks like Nanda Devi, Dronagiri, Neelkanth, Chaukhambha and more.
