Kuari Pass Trek Package - Daywise Detailed Itinerary

Day 1Arrival In Auli ( 250 Kms,8 - 9 hours )

Drive Day

Brief Details Of The Day:

Journey from Haridwar to Auli is a long one, but definitely not a boring one. As you swirl up, you come across the Prayags ( confluence of rivers) of Uttrakhand, coming down from the Himalayan Glaciers on the higher reaches of the Himalayan state. These rivers unite to form the mighty Ganga which flows down Haridwar to rest for India. Ganga is known as the lifeline of India, and Uttrakhand - The Dev Bhoomi ( God's Land)

The streets are colorful too !!

Travelling in mountain roads for over 280 KMS can be really tiring. So take a good sleep in your hotel tonight.

Day 2From Auli To Tali Forest Camp, Via - Gorson's Bugyal, Tali Top ( 11 Kms,6 - 7 hours )

Trek Day

Altitude Profile And Geo-Coordinates:
Brief Details Of The Day:

Surrounding you is a grand view of 4 peaks of Chaukhamba, Neelkanth, Mana, Kamet, Hathi, Ghodi, Trishul, Nandaghunti, Nanda Devi, Dunagiri...
