PANGARCHULLA PEAK CLIMB & KUARI PASS TREK

The Kuari pass trek, also referred to as the Lord Curzon trail trek, is surely one of the most popular and finest treks in the Indian Himalayas and rightly so. According to us only thing missing on this trail was the ‘adventure element’ so we modified the regular itinerary a bit and added an exciting stage to this trek where you get to climb a challenging but doable Himalayan peak called Pangarchulla (4700 m). This peak can be climbed by ‘fit’ first time trekkers also but with some hard work put into it!!

Pangarchulla peak poses challenges which keep on changing with seasons. Beginning of the season (Apr – May) the climb involves navigating through deep snow while later in the season (Oct – Nov) difficulty comes in the form of bouldering and traversing scree slopes. Our guides will run a small course on climbing techniques to get you to know more about the sport and get comfortable with it. They will put ropes for safety (if required) and will assist people throughout the climb. One is not required to have any prior climbing experience/knowledge

For mountain lovers this trail offers king size views of Himalayas and an opportunity to be transported into inner Himalayan region in a very short duration. The trek is not only spectacular but very different from everything else. You will for most of the times be walking on endless meadows with big and small mountains jutting out.
There are beautiful forest sections, magnificent campsites, and sunrise & sunsets to die for, in addition to many more enjoyable facets of the Himalayas which make trekking a worthwhile activity. You will also get the opportunity to meet and interact with shepherds and their entourage and surely be bowled over by their ‘way of life’. Highlight of the trip would surely be the views of the most revered mountain in the world, Nanda Devi (7816 m) along with other towering giants like Dronagiri (7066 m), Kamet (7757 m), Chaukhamba (7128 m)
& Trishul (7120 m) peak and many-many more.

This is a moderate trek barring one challenging day when you will literally climb to the top of the world when you summit Pangarchula peak at about 4700m. This is a demanding but technically easy climb which even first timers can attempt. Those who don’t want to do this part can attempt Mini Pangarchula @ 4200m or stay back at the base camp and explore the surroundings from there. Upon reaching the top we experience a huge sense of achievement and see views which only select few get an opportunity to experience making it a moment to cherish lifelong.

Another big highlight of this trek would  be the opportunity to visit and stay in Auli, where you stay in the scenically located & very comfortable Himalayan Eco lodge. While at the lodge keep a lookout for birds, you will surely end up seeing many species.
