trip overview

If you are looking for The Kuari Pass Trek then your search ends here. Aahvan Adventures is a leading Adventure Travel Company in India located in Ahmedabad, We organize treks and adventure trips in the Himalayas in no man’s land. The Kuari Pass trek is a fun mix of scenery and adventure. Kuari pass trek begins from Chamoli district in the Garhwal Himalayas, followed by a challenging trek through deep snowy terrains, rocks and steep slopes, to reach its peak.

The peak oversees forests, never-ending meadows and merging of several Himalayan rivers. Along with a rare sight of footprints of the Himalayan Bear or the Leopard. The climb to The Kuari Pass, at 3900 m is all the excitement you will need! For those who do not wish to participate in the Pangarchula peak of Kuari pass trek. 

The trek is also called as “Lord Curzon” trek, as the trek was discovered by him. He was Viceroy of India. And He discovered this Kuari pass trek in 1905. He had the hobby of exploring nature and new places. that’s why he discovered the place and started his Journey from Ramni Village which lies on another side of Pass. His trail was all the way through Gorson Bugyal where you will find a lot of Golden Shrubs. People say that there is no end of Golden Shrubs at this place. so we entitled the trek as ” Golden Trail ” 

There is a history behind naming this trek as Kuari pass trek which is like, This place is of God and Goddess. so,  Goddess Parvati used to meditate at this place before she got married to Lord Shiva. Neelkanth, Lord Shiva is accepted as true to reside at this Place. This place is located exactly in front of the Kuari pass trek. Goddess Parvati did determination and austerity with that Lord Shiva got Impressed and took her away to marry her. At that time Goddess Parvati was young and bachelor when this happened, hence, it is called Kuari (meaning bachelor in the English language). so at present time, this is called Kuari Pass trek. 

The trekkers who have already been to this Kuari Pass Trek can go for  Brahmatal Trek which is based in Uttarakhand and the starting point of the Brahmatal Trek is beautiful kathgodham village.
