Fresh mountain air. Snowy trails. Wide open spaces. 360 degree views extending from the Tibet border, encompassing the entire Garhwali Himalayan range. Sounds like heaven right? Go on the Kuari Pass Trek in winter, and that’s exactly where you feel like you’re going!
Being one of the few trekking destinations that are open in the winter, this is a popular end-of-the-year trek. But it’s also the spectacular views that make this so famous. As trekkers walk through lush fields, forests and remote villages, they are rewarded with enchanting views all around of the Chaukhamba Range to one side while the summits of Mana, Kamet and Abl Gamin extend on the other side all the way to the Tibet border.
This winter trek to Kuari Pass traverses through green meadows, dense forests, remote villages, gushing rivers and snow-capped mountains to give trekkers a trip of a lifetime.
Located in Chamoli district, Kuari, which means 'doorway' in the local language, lies south of the Tibet border and on the western edge of the Nanda Devi Biosphere Reserve. It is surrounded on all sides by imposing ranges that include the Kamet, which extends up to a dizzying height of 7756 metres as well as the snowcapped ranges extending all the way to Gangotri.
