In 1905, Lord Curzon reached Kuari Pass (3850m). He made the trek and since then it is also known as the Lord Curzon’s trail. The trek passes through Pristine Rhododendron, oak and deodar forest. Rarely Himalayan flora and fauna are found as plenty as on this trail. The Kuari (virgin) Pass trek is a highly varied and scenic trek which passes through three lesser Passes and five major rivers – the Pindar, Kaliganga, Nandakini, Birehiganga and Dhauliganga. The main attraction of the trek is the imposing view of the eastern peaks of Garhwal Himalayas, the twin peaks of Nanda Devi(7848m), Kamet(7756m), Dronagiri, Trishul(7120m), Changabang (6864m), Bertholi, Neelkanth (6596m), Kalanka, Chaukhamba (7128m), Lampak and others. On a clear day these mountains are giving us a thrilling experience of the Mighty Himalayas, particularly the NANDA DEVI MASSIF.
