In 1905 Lord Curzon trekked from Ghat to Kuari Pass. The trail he followed is now known as the famous Lord Curzon trail and Kuari Pass now is a well-known name. But in those days this pass had no name. What then led Lord Curzon to choose this particular name for the pass?

In this video Indiahikes local staff Dinesh Kuniyal tells the story about the name of this pass.
