The Kuari Pass trek is known as The Curzon Trail (named after the former British Viceroy of India “Lord Curzon”).

The views on the Winter Kuari Pass trek are often cited as the best in the Indian Himalayas. It is not hard to discover why. To the north of the Winter Kuari Pass trek is the Chaukhamba Range, while the summits of Mana (7,272 m), Kamet (7,756 m) and Abl Gamin (7,355 m) extend to the Tibet border.

In the middle foreground, a number of spectacular peaks including Dunagiri (7,066 m) and Changabang (6,864 m) enclose the Nanda Devi Sanctuary while to the west the snowcapped ranges extend to Gangotri.
