Hi,
We are two persons who planning
do go from Auli to Kuari Pass and back.
We plan to do so in October.

Can you tell us please in how many
days we can do this?

Do we need a tent for this short trail?

Thanks.

I have done Kuari Pass trek from Ghat in Sept.'95. Our original plan was to end the trek at Auli via Tali and Gorson but we changed our mind and ended the trek at Tapovan to see the hot springs and Bhavishya Badri on Malari Road.

As per the information then available, yes, you will require to take a tent for a intermediate halt at Tali or Gailgarh depending upon your pace of trek for which there are camping sites. The distance between Auli and Kuari Pass is about 24 kms.

If time permits, you can return from Kuari Pass to Tapovan via Gailgarh and Khulara and take a jeep from Tapovan to Joshimath.

Kauri Pass to Tapovan is about 21 kms. We reached Tapovan from Kuari pass on the same day.

I hope this information should give you some idea for planning your trek. I am sure some one from IM who had been to this trek recently may be able to throw some more information.

Hi,
Well you certainly require a tent and other camping equipment for this trail. reach Haridwar and then Joshimath. At Joshimath you will get all help for this trek. Why come back to Auli, go down to Tapovan and get back to Joshimath by road.

Certainly, rain is the main issue. There are many who venture to trek in Uttarachal himalayas in rainy season like Valley of Flowers and Har-ki-dun. But insofar as a combine trek of Roop Kund and Kuari Pass is concerned, I will not do in rainy season.

I am sorry, I may sound negative.

Hi Sadanand......

Thanks for your quick and frank advise .... I was also thinking about rain as the issue ... but my guide pair Debu+Balwant (who incidentally have done this 2 treks several time before) were saying July is not a problem.

Anyway let me seek more advise and see if anyone else is thinking of this in July.

BTW: is this the right forum for this? or is there a better specific forum for these Treks, in Indiamike like the Milam one?

I have not done Roop kund trek, but on the basis of the feed back I got from my friends few years back, I guess, the trek from Bedni Bugiyal onwards is tough.
One positive aspect from the observation of your guide-pair is that they have assessed you as a trekker in your last two treks and they may be feeling that you have capabilities to undertake this trek in July .

SK,

Yes, perhaps/maybe my porter-guides may have assessed that I can do it.

Though my observation is that, by and large, the local porters & guides are generally pretty desperate for work and money ... they would like to strike a deal for fixed days of treks ... and naturally gain maxm profit if the trek gets aborted due to any reason in less than contracted days.

I don't really blame the locals .... they are very poor and really need that money .... imagine carrying loads of 25+kgs up and down, those steep mountains for Rs 150-200 per day? :-(

Yes, you are thinking correctly. Best is to judge your fitness and consider the weather conditions. I would also like to add that the trail is up and up till Kauri pass from the side you intend to climb. I have also posted reply on another thread.

hi,
You can do that trek in 3 or 4 days but you want local guide & pay eco-camp fes for goverment(forest) but if you have more time then try to Auli-Gursontop-Kauripass-panyaudyar-ramni-ghat.

I am sorry this is not a easy walk from AULI to KUARI PASS and you not only require all equipment but also need one good guide.

So, what is the most recommended way to climb KUARI PASS?

Thanks

Hi,
Auli to Kuari Pass is the easiest of the way. Just go for it.
