Trek Overview

Given the moderate level of trekking involved, Kauri Pass trek is highly recommended for the beginners. Sometimes known as the Lord Curzon Trail, the trek is quite popular among the people trekking in the Garhwal region of the Himalayas. However, Kauri Pass trek happens to be a segment of the Lord Curzon Trail that concludes at Ghat. These treks are held as per-monsoon and post-monsoon treks as the Autumn season approaches.

Kauri Pass trek commences from Auli and has a stretch of 6 days with average elevation of 3,650 meters. The views of the imposing peak of Nanda Devi, standing at an height of over 7,800 meters, is one of the the best features of this trek. Such is the pleasing panorama of the meadows of this path that trekkers would hardly feel exhausted on their journey.

The Journey

It gains its byname as this traditional route was once traversed by Lord Curzon in 1905. Beginning from the meadows of Auli at 8,600 ft., the trek takes you through the abundant forests that feature deodar, oak, maple and chestnut tree. The splendid views of the mountains are well bound to keep you in eternal awe. The beautiful peaks of Nanda Devi, Trishul, Dronagiri, Chaukhamba and Changbang offer a miracle of rare delight. The locals and shepherds are always friendly and forthcoming for any help or guidance.

As you proceed further with your journey, the signs of civilizations begin to disappear with the wilderness of nature having to dominate the future course. The streams of water bouncing down the rocks are potable at many places and could always come handy during a long course.

Level of Difficulty

As for the level of difficulty, simple climbing techniques would be enough to take you through some challenging segments of the treks. Any fit person from the age of 14 onwards is eligible for this trek. Reckoned as a moderate trek, it begins with trekking through the slopes of Auli. Your final climb to Kauri Pass could be a bit challenging, where you would have to cross a bridge floored with frozen ice. The chilling weather may prove to be a source of torment, hence it is recommended to be adequately dressed and geared, so that you may be able to trek easily.

One could easily get networks at Auli with signals becoming weaker as you proceed further. Haridwar is the nearest city from Joshimath and you will be undertaking a 12-hour long journey to traverse the route between these places. The heads of Ganga and the confluence of its two main heads, Alaknanda and Bhagirathi, at Devprayag is a sight to behold.

Few Tips

Given the rugged terrain and the extreme weather, it is always important to equip oneself accordingly. A pair of trekking shoes, backpack, sun cap, headlamp, thermal flask, etc.  are some of the important things that you will need to bring along. Apart from this, some basic medications may also be required on this journey. Once you are done with the trek, you may surely send some time and have a spiritual retreat in Rishikesh and Haridwar. And finally, if there are no train tickets available, then you can travel by bus from Haridwar to Delhi.
