The trek is a Nature lover’s paradise with some exotic flora and fauna on display, plus the meadows of Auli and Gorson add to the completeness of experiencing the entire display of Himalayan splendors.. Facing north the vision sweeps from the steep valleys of Trishul in the east to the peaks of Kedarnath in the west – the Kedarnath, Chaukhamba, Nilkantha, Kamet, Gauri Parbat, Hathi Parbat, Nanda Devi, Bethartoli, Dunagiri – (all 6000m – 7000 m high peaks) lined one after the other in a magnificent arc. If one looks southward, the foothills stretch wave upon wave on to the dim haze of the distant plains.
Surrounded by some remote villages one also gets good insights into the local life. Lord Curzon went upto the Kuari Pass in 1905. So the trek is called Curzon Road. One can approach the Pass from Tapovan via Khulara, or Joshimath via Auli, Gorson, Chitrakantha; or Joshimath via Mrig, Tugasi, Khulara. All the above three treks meet at Gailgarh, only 5 kms. north of Kuari Khal (Pass). From the south the Pass can be reached from Ghat via Ramni but is longer than the other three, of which the Tapovan route is the shortest (21 kms.). Auli and Gorson Bugyals are charming meadows and the nature – lovers prefer to use this route for outward trek and return by Tapovan route.
