First Look At Kuari Pass Trek In 2020

Last week, Trek Leader Leo Saldhana went for a quick recce to Kuari Pass trek. From there he started sharing a photo-story, just as he trekked. It was like he was taking us along with him on the trek.

Kuari Pass started taking shape in our minds as Leo shared pictures of how it looked. His running commentary made us connect with the setting. By the end of it, we all felt like we had been there with him on the trek.

And I want to share this experience with you. So, here’s the photo story Leo shared with us. View it and drop your thoughts in the comment section below 🙂Indiahikes Kuari Pass Karchhi

You enter the forest to get to Akhrot ghetta and such tall pine trees. The start itself gets quite grand for anyone.

When you’re almost about to reach the campsite you can find some pocket snacks here.

The lonely Akhrot ka ped. A small water stream is quite accessible from where we’ll camp. For times when it snows too much we have another big rivulet 100m from the camp.

On the way to Tali

Tali is in the middle of the forest, a small clearing between some golden oaks, rhodos and very few pine.

After leaving Tali campsite, on our last day we head to Auli via Gorson Bugyal. One of the USP’s of the trek. It’s going to be a long and challenging day considering the amount of distance and some exposed sections during snow. This particular section comes as soon as you get out of the Tali forest.

Strong winds have made the snow really hard at Gorson. Will have to be extra careful here.

Enter the forest after Gorson. I mean this section of the forest has officially become one of the best forests I’ve ever entered. Everything is so well placed!!
