Kuari Pass Trek A Perfect Detailed Guide

Kuari Pass Trek


A mountain lover’s dream, Kuari Pass. Right away, a never-ending view of the tallest mountains in India becomes visible. You even get to see the most crystal-clear view of Mount Nanda Devi, the tallest mountain in India. You can also visit for trekthe famous  hampta pass. 

Kuari Pass is a trek that is almost ideal in addition to this. You pass through historic forests with oak and rhododendron trees. The trail enters meadows just as your eyes adjust to the forest canopy above. The walk is quite thrilling because of the interaction of the various types of scenery.


On this walk, you get to camp in some amazing places. Every campsite makes you awestruck by the surroundings, whether it’s the Chitrakantha trees or the Khullar meadow under Mt. Dronagiri.

Kuari Pass is the route to take if this would be your first foray into the Himalayas. It is nearly entirely designed with the novice in mind.

To begin with, the 4-day trip to Kuari Pass (6 days when you include the travel days from Rishikesh). The trip begins in Dhak, a small town in Uttarakhand’s Garhwal region close to Joshimath. In the Nanda Devi National Park, where it is located.

A beginner in the Himalayas can easily complete the easy-moderate trek to Kuari Pass. There are three things about the walk, though, that stick with you the most.

How to reach the starting point of the trek:

There are basically three ways in which you can reach Rishikesh which is basically the starting point from where the trek starts.

1. Travel to Rishikesh overnight by train or bus.

2. Drive from Haridwar to Rishikesh after taking an overnight train or bus (35 min drive with normal traffic).

We always advise choosing the government buses outside the bus terminal over the private ones because, in our experience, there is a very high likelihood of a delay when using private buses. Government buses are also always more dependable. No matter which bus you take, make sure you get to Rishikesh at the very least by 05:30 in the morning.

3. Fly to the Jolly Grant Airport in Dehradun, then drive the 20 km (or 30-minute) distance to Rishikesh. If you’re arriving by plane, arrive the day before.

Best time for trekking:

With the exception of July and August, the Kuari Pass Trek is accessible for 10 months of the year (the peak rainy season in Uttarakhand).

Without the monsoons, Kuari Pass has four distinct seasons: winter, spring, summer, and autumn. Every season has something special and lovely about it.

During winters:

People make the trek to Kuari Pass in the winter to experience the snow and the breathtaking vistas. To experience the snow and the spectacular views, many hike to Kuari Pass in the winter. The landscape changes colour once more when it is dusted with white snow. Soft, powdery snowflakes hang languidly from the pine trees, giving the atmosphere a hint of the holiday season. Perfect for having snowball fights and, if you’re lucky, watching snow fall. On the other hand, snow increases the walk’s degree of difficulty. You should therefore be ready if you plan to travel during the winter.

During spring:

In Kuari, spring begins in mid-March and lasts until the end of April. The snow begins to melt in the upper reaches as the grass begins to turn green in the lower meadows. Rhododendrons bloom on the trees as I write this.

 While rhododendrons blossom on the trees, little flowers poke their heads out of the grass.

During summer:

You may expect warm, sunny days and a little bit chillier nights during the summer. So, if you want to hike in pleasant weather, now is the time to do it.

Do plan on beginning your gentle showers before the end of the summer. Rainstorms typically begin in the afternoon and last into the evening. This will signal the start of the monsoon season.

A short itinerary of the trek:

DAY-1: From Rishikesh to Tapovan.

DAY-2: A drive from Tapovan to Karchi and then a trek from there to Akhrotghetta.

DAY-3: Trekking from Akhrotghetta to Khullara.

DAY-4: From Khullara to Tali while passing through Kuari pass.

DAY-5: From Tali to Auli (Return route starts here).

DAY-6: Departing from Joshimath and then reaching Rishikesh from where you can either go          back or can explore the entire Uttarakhand .

Difficulty of the trek:

A level 3 trip that is easy-moderate is the Kuari Pass trek. A trek is categorised as easy-moderate by Indiahikes if it meets the following requirements:

The trek lasts 5 to 6 days, is 5 to 6 days in length, and offers easy and various exit locations. The rise is gentle and evened out.


Kuari trek is one of the best treks that you can think of trekking even during the winters. This trek provides you with the opportunity to explore and experience the beauty of the nature that lies in the mountains. This trek is a must and you can rest assured that you will not regret coming here.
