    The Kuari Pass trek is one of the most scenic treks in the Himalayas, but with the addition of the Pangarchula Peak, it becomes a memorable adventure as well.

Your guides will take you through a brief course on climbing techniques, and may even rope up certain sections if needed. This trek to Kuari Pass will be a thrill for fit trekkers who enjoy a challenge.
