Curzon Trail including Kuari Pass and Roopkund

A classic trek in the Indian Himalaya crossing Kuari pass with superb views of Changabang, Kamet and Nanda Devi.

Curzon Trail was named after the British Viceroy who walked parts of this trek. It is renowned for the stunning mountain views along the way you will get excellent views of Trisul (7,120m), the trident Nanda Ghunti (6,309m) and the tooth like Changabang (6,864m), the unmistakable pyramid of Kamet (7,756m) and Nanda Devi (7,817m).

The trail traverses the high ranges, without entering the permanent snowline, crosses over Kuari pass and several major streams while skirting the western edge of the Nanda Devi sanctuary. After the trek we have included a day rafting on the River Ganges near Rishikesh, or alternatively you can spend another day exploring the ashrams and temples nearby. The itinerary has been designed to ensure that you have time to see the cities you pass through including two sightseeing days in Delhi and Rishikesh.
