Kauri Pass Trek

Considered by many as characteristically the most beautiful trek in the Garhwal Himalayas, the Kuari Pass is a once in a lifetime experience. The area here is really wild because the higher reaches of the river in the valley have not yet been fully explored. En route one can get splendid view of various uncharted lakes especially the Gauna Lake. The route is through various remote villages in the wilderness where the civilized world has not yet managed to cast its shadow. To reach the pass the last ascent is very steep and exerting but worth its while because the ridge on which the pass is situated is the edge of the divide between the Lesser and the Greater Himalayas. The ridge-top is a continuous grassy meadow and affords next-door Himalayan views, one of the finest in the world. At the camp on the ridge overlooking peaks like Nanda devi, Dunagiri, Hathi Parvat, Ghori Parvat, Kamet, Chaukmamba, Nilkanth, Bethratoli and the Trishul peaks one feels truly on top of the world. From Kauri Pass a day trek to Pangerchuli peak is possible from where the Greater Himalayan peaks are a whisper away.
