Kuari-pass is a trek which is in some different league all together. The trek which lies south of the tibetan border begins from Joshimath, in the chamoli district of himalayas; which has evolved into a hub for trekkers and pilgrims in this part of himalayas. Kuari means ‘doorway’ and we suggest it to be a doorway into your inner-self. As you reach higher, the himalayas are arrayed before you in a stupendous arc and the play of light from the trees is a visual delight. Looking so closely at the sky high mountains is almost religious. Walk through the jungles of oak and deodar to get the closest view of mt. Nanda Devi.
