Description (Brief)

Discovered in early 1900s, by the former ‘Viceroy of India’ Lord Curzon,Kauripass wich is also known as ‘The Curzon Trail’ is very famous among the European & American travelers as an exciting trek destination. As the name suggests Kauripass, where ‘Kauri’ means ‘doorway’, is a Himalayan high mountain pass situated at the western rim of ‘Nanda Devi Sanctuary’ biosphere reserve, in the Garhwal region of Northern India.

Further about its discovery, Lord Curzon along with his team reached Kauripass from Ghat by Ramni. Today many trekkers prefer to undertake the trek in the reverse direction. They climb the ridge above Tapovan and reach Galigarh, where the trial coming from Gorson meets. One can also reach kauripass from Auli bugyal through Gorson top and this is the best way to reach Kauripass. The main attraction of Curzon’s trial is a majestic view of the twin peaks of Nanda Devi (7817m), Kamet (7756m) , Dronagiri (7066m), Hathi Parwat (6727m), Ghori parvat (6709m) and so on, with the view of Himalayas 360˚ with the altitude of 4268mts takas 26kms.
