  • Summary of Roopkund with Kuari Pass Trek



    Max Altitude:  5029 Mts.
    Best Time: March - June & Sept - Mid Nov
    Difficulty: Moderate Trek

    This trek of Roop kund & Kuari pass takes you on a remote trail discovered by an English Viceroy (Lord Curzon). Hence it is also called Curzon’s Trail. For many years Roop Kund the mystery lake has held the attention of trekkers because of bones and skeletons that can be seen in its water. This high altitude lake has also been a pilgrimage destination for centuries and has attracted the tourists from all over the globe over the years. The trek to Roop Kund takes one through some of the best terrain in the Garhwal Himalayas.

    Next stage on this trek takes you through another fabulous destination called as Kuari Pass. This trek offers you the most stunning views of some of the famous Himalayan Peaks like HATHI GHODI PARVAT (6727 Meters), DRONAGIRI (7170 Meters), NANDA DEVI (7748 Meters), Neelkanth (6597 Meters), NANDA GHUNTI (6727 Meters), KAMET (7756 Meters), CHAUKHAMBA etc. The beauty of the region is best described the famous explorer Eric Shipton who said – “A vision of such beauty is worth a world of striving”. Towards the end one night stay in the spiritual capital of the world i.e Rishikesh adds just the right flavour to the trip.

    Overnight: Tent

    Day 13: GHUNI - SEMKHARAK (2700 m / 14 Km Trek)
    This is a long but rewarding day. From the campsite you climb steeply for 1,000ft/300m on a good zigzagging track to emerge on open grassy grazing meadows. Snow peaks begin to emerge above the forest to the north. The path continues up through forests of rhododendron, pines and oak with more pastures for summer grazing with shepherds huts. You may meet flocks of sheep and goats moving along the track. The highest point, reached in 2¼ hours from the camp, at 3,064m/10,053ft, is the Ramni Pass, also called Binayak Top. From here it is possible to make out the Kauri Pass, which we will cross on Day 8. From now on there may be a chance to see the multi-coloured monal pheasant but they are very shy, being hunted by the locals for the pot. You then trek gently down across more pastures and open glades, then into lovely forests of horse chestnuts and walnut trees with waterfalls. From here, the trek is a zigzag descent to Camping place. Overnight: Tents

    DAY 14: SEMKHARAK - PANA (2450 M /12 Km)
    Morning after breakfast start trekking to reach Panarani (2450 Mt) by covering approx 12 kms. The day's walk starts with an aroma of living style and culture of people of Jhinjhi village. The trail continues to descend through the village finally comes to the valley floor and brings you to a high suspension bridge over river Birahi Ganga. After crossing the bridge you get to the true right of the valley. The trail now climbs steeply with zig zags initially and later with some false summits finally to the ridge. Again some compensating views of the nearby settlements and some Himalayan peaks are really appreciable. From this point path is gradual and passes through a beautiful forest of Rhododendron finally go past Kaliagad to the settlement at Pana. A final ascend of approximately one kilometer will bring you to the campsite above village of Pana. Overnight: Tent

    DAY 15: PANA - SARTOLI - DHAKWANI (3353 m / ) - 5-6 hours
    The trail is well distinctive above the camp site passing through a forest of Rhododendron with a couple of false summit and finally takes you to the ridge. Now trail continues gradually through the forest to an open meadow of Sartoli which serve as camping site as well as pasture land for a sheep & cattle. This is an ideal place to view Kuari Pass dominating the horizon. Initially the trail from Sartoli starts to descend gradually for a couple of kilometers but in the later part the trail descends steeply to the side stream with loose moraine (The guest are required to use their trekking poles during this stretch). Cross over the side stream and start a steep ascend with a series of switch backs to the ridge top. From here trail traverses slightly with a couple of ascend again and finally takes you to another side stream just under Dhakwani. A final climb from here brings you above the tree-line to the campsite on the large pastures where sheep and goats graze in summer, with the Kauri Pass towering above. A cup of tea with cherishing flavor is worth it.  Overnight: Tent

    DAY 16: DHAKWANI - KUARI PASS (3,800 m) - TALI

We still have little more to walk and gain height. Highest point the trail is 4000m which is half an hour walk from the pass towards Tali. Here we await the spectacular views of the morning.
