About the trip
On this trek you get a firsthand experience of climbing a Himalayan peak. Though not very difficult, it still gives you a great feel of what it means to climb a mountain. Also you will walk along the parts of the famous Lord Curzon Trail, named after an English lord who discovered it a long time ago.
Initially, the trek takes you through a few quaint Garhwal villages, giving you an insight into the culture and the local ‘way of life’. The trail is mostly through rich forest and alpine grazing pastures. Interactions with the local shepherds can be pretty humbling and interesting. After a few days of mostly climbing, the trail takes you to a fabulous destination in the Indian Himalayas - Kuari Pass. Though not very high by Himalayan standards, it offers the most stunning views of some of the popular Himalayan peaks. This trail is internationally popular as the Lord Curzon’s Trail. The main attraction of this section of the trek is the majestic views of the peaks of Nanda Devi, Chaukhamba, Hathi-Ghodi, Kamet, Dronagiri, etc. The beauty of the region is best described by the famous explorer Eric Shipton, who said, “A vision of such beauty is worth a world of striving.”
Towards the end, a rafting trip on the holy Ganges, a river worshiped by millions of Indians and visit to Rishikesh, the spiritual capital of the country made popular by the band ‘Beatles’ adds just the right flavour to the trip.
