Since, the trek does not take the participants to a high altitude, this 6 day long trek in Kuari Pass is considered relatively an easier one. The experience of trekking this winter trek is in all sense similar to the alpine expedition that take place in the snow capped ranges of the Himalayas. Upon reaching the upper stretches of the Kuari Pass trek, the trekkers can explore many of the uninhabited zones of the famous Gharwal region of the Himalayas. One beautiful aspect about trekking in Kuari Pass trek is that the trekkers get to trek in the naturally peaceful and calm environment of the mountains that soothes the mind and soul of the trekkers who are tired of the hustle bustle of the city life; they feel the joy of rejuvenation here by undertaking the  trekking expedition instead of being tired.

 

One of the biggest factors that attracts a lot of trekkers to this trail is the fact that it provides picturesque views of the second highest peak of the Himalayan ranges, Nanda Devi. Apart from Nanda Devi, the trekkers also gain the opportunity to take views of other significant peaks in their fullest form. The trail also takes the trekkers through a dense cover of wilderness and also introduce them to the different tributaries of the river Ganges. The landscape of the Kuari Pass trek trail keeps changing, giving space to the clouds which keep hovering over the region. The charm of camping in this region is phenomenal because of the presence of the snow capped terrain present in this region. However, the entire trekking expedition will change if you go trekking during the summer months.

 

The adventure and thrill which are attached with Kuari Pass trek during the months of the winters is something which can never be poured into words, it is something which only the heart can feel and the soul can rejoice. The mesmerizing scenery of the snow kissed peaks of the mountains makes the trekkers feel that they are sitting in the lap of the Mother Nature. While trekking, the participants can also learn about the small nothings of life which are often left in abeyance during the daily conduct of the life business. While trekking here, you will realize that life changes every moment and brings loads of challenges. Tagging the Kuari Pass trekking expedition as an educational and recreational trip would certainly not be wrong.
