Kuari Pass Trek Auli to Tapovan

In 1905 this trek was first visited by the then viceroy general of India Lord Curzon. Since then it has come to be known as Curzon's trail. It is very popular trek amongst all including European and American travelers, but most of them travel during the summer season of april to June. October is just the right time to do this trek as after the monsoon its lush green meadows and high Himalayan views are simply breathtaking and beyond descriptions. Lord Curzon reached Kuari Pass from Ghat via Ramni. Today many trekkers also prefer to undertake the trek in the reverse direction. They climb the ridge above Tapovan, and reach Gailgarh, where the trail coming from Gorson meets.

One can also reach Kuari Pass from Auli Bugyal through Gorson Top. The main attraction of Curzon's Trail is the majestic view of the twin peaks of Nanda Devi along with Kamet, Dronagiri, and Hathi- Ghodi Parvat. Along the trek we will pass through pristine Rhododenron, Oak and Deodar forests. Rare Himalayan flora and fauna are found aplenty on the trail. At Tapovan there is a massive sulphur spring. The waters of the spring are said to have excellent medicinal properties.
