Kuari pass (3650 mts):
Lord Curzon made the trek to Kuari Pass, and since then it has come to know as Curzon’s trail. it is very popular among European and American travellers. In 1905, Lord Curzon reached Kuari pass from Ghat via Ramni. Today many trekkers prefer to undertake the trek in the reverse direction. They climb the ridge above Tapovan and reach Gailgarh, where the trail coming from Gordon meets. One can also reach Kuari Pass from Auli Bugyal through Gordon Top and this is the best idea.
The main attraction of Curzon’s trail is the majestic view of the twin peaks of Nanda Devi, Kamet, Dronagiri, and Hathi-Ghodi Parvat. Along the trek, we’ll pass through pristine Rhododendron, 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.
