This beautiful trek is very popular. The Kuari pass is also known as Curzon's trail since the British viceroy, George Curzon, attempted crossing it and loved exploring this area. Though the pass is not very high it offers excellent views of Nanda Devi, Dunagiri and other Himalayan peaks. The Nanda Devi national park and the Rishi Ganga gorge are visible from the first day itself.
