Kuari Pass - North Face Trek

06 Nights / 07 Days

When should you go: 01 May - 09 May / 16 Oct - 24th Oct

Trek to the Abode of the Gods situated amidst the lofty peaks of the Himalayas in the Garhwal region of Uttarakhand. The Kuari Pass offers one of the most breathtaking view of the lofty Himalayan peaks and one feels as if he is in the presence of Gods. From the Pass enjoy the grand spectacle of the gorges of Trishul in the East and the Kedarnath peaks in the company of Chaukhamba, Nilkantha, Kamet, Gauri Parbat, Nandadevi, Hathi Parbat, Bethartoli and Dunagiri, forming an arc in the West, towering loftily and staring down at humanity a bit disdainfully from heights of above 6000 mtrs. Wherever the eye turns, there are snowcapped mountains and the multitude of foothills recedes to the South, clad in mist and haze. The Kuari-North Face trek is unalloyed adventure and a brush with the Gods. You come away touched by the Spirit, moved by the grandeurs of creation.
