Kuari Pass/Outer Nanda Devi Sanctuary

IMPORTANT :-
(1)It is very risky  to walk alone in these dense jungles. So always walk in group as I have seen active wild life .

(2) It is better to take porter(s),they serve as guide also and are good source of information about tribal culture and life.

(3)Do not stay at pass area for long time.Unpredictable change in weather has resulted many casualties of trekkers and climbers.

HISTORY:-   Kuari pass trek came in existence when Lord Curzon visited this area .It is well laid trek,created by then enslave indian for their mountain lover "ruler". It goes through one of the dense jungles of famous Gharwal Himalayas.

GHAT-RAVANI
Reaching Ghat now is very easy and comfortable. Jeeps and buses are available from Nand Prayag which is enroute  to Badrinath-Hemkund national highway. After reaching Ghat, and after being refused by forest rest house(better get booked in advance ), stay for a night in school buildingis best option. Do not litter. If you want to arrange for oprters..ask same Tea shop wala...or inquire the only house adjacent to school building. If Gabbar Singh is at home..take him. He is good.
(1) Start early, as soon as possible, as direct sun creates lot of heat and moisture which ultimately effects your very first day in Gharwal Himalayas. As soon as pine jungle starts..it is cool and comfortable. Scented air and shelter from Sun makes a trekker "all happy". You can prepare breakfast or lunch where ever you find running source of water ,which are in plenty. Trek is well laid and an average pace will take 4 hrs. to reach Ravani. You have to cross whole village...go bit high and there is a ruined building...yes, don't stay there as it is packed with animal waste...pitch your tent in open gound.

RAVANI-JHINJHI
It is hight gaining day. But trek goes though dense jungle, heavy scented air, thick growth of trees and bushes. Darkness and original jungle sounds creates enough "scene" for a memory. It is untouched nature but do not walk alone...active wild life !! For an average pace,it is 4-5 hrs. walk.

JHINJHI-PANA
Again it is dense jungle but near Pana,you will slowly slowly come out of it. Type of  growth also changes..and one finds himself walking in bushes.Very soon,open ridge comes and well laid trek goes down to traverse for Pana. Pana is a tribal village with typical old fashioned people. Few people are serving in Indian army and they are  are source of info from outer world. I saw colorful spring festival which generates lot of energy in performer and viwer...It could take 5 Hrs to reach Pana.

PANA-KUARI PASS-DOMABITA
Trek rise upward as son as you leave Pana..zig-zag take you on top of the mountain and then it is sheer down. Cross a stream and again zig-zag ascending. It is steep hight gain.Ultimately it ends up in foot of the pass. A moderate level of scree slope...if you are new to trekking then take your time in ascending. Sudden change of altitude can create some chest pain/dizziness/upset stomach/weakness.....on a clear sunny day,one can see BandurPunch ,Nanda Devi (East),and sometimes Nand kot also. DO NOT STAY  FOR LONG TIME. Just at other side of the the pass,there is plenty of place to pitch tent but better walk for two hrs. more..in the main time you will see caves...DO NOT TRY TO GO INSIDE . As soon as jungle strats...there is pasture with lot of clean water...pitch your tent.This is Domabita.

DOMABITA-AULI-JOSHIMATH
Domabita can be accessed through Auli also. Where it is very easy to reach it also very refreshing as you will not see much of any human beings arround you. Depends on, how remote you wish to pitch your tent..BUT it;s one of the few peaceful and very relaxing camping place. From Kuari pass...it is gradual climb and then some descending which takes you to straight ...slopes of Auli. It is India's famous ski resort. Cemented stairs will take you st. down to Joshimath.
Catch a bus for Haridwaar-you are in "civilized world".
