Hi,
I'm interesting in doing that trek. few question please (after I've search the forum):

1. after arriving to Joshimath- I will carry my own tent and sleeping bag, but where do I find a cooking stove and food? Do you recommended to do this via trekking agencies? Can you recommend on a trekking agencies?

2. How much time do I need for arrange and get ready and for this trek?

3. Do one still need a permit to that trek? if so- do one still arrange this via trekking agencies?

4. If I will take a porter- do I need a guide? Can I find a porter not via trekking agencies?

5. in how many nights it can be done (Auli to Tabovan via Kuari pass)? At which camping ground do you recommend (I read about few on the way from Auli to Kuari pass)

Thank you!

Be my guest, if you think you have any answers

It also dates to last August btw; one hopes the poster found their way there somehow by now.

I have not done this trek but did Ramani-Kuari Pass-Tapoban in sept.'95. So let me try:

1. All provisions and equipments for trekking is available at Joshimath. I think, one can easily undertake this trek without involving trekking agencies.

2. You require one day to make the all the arrangements.

3. We had not taken any permit for Kuari Pass trek thinking that it was not required. But from others who had done this trek in the recent period, they had taken permits from Joshimath/Auli.

4. My advice is it is better to hire a guide for this trek especially if you are undertaking this trek in April. You may encounter some snow on way to Kuari Pass.

5. The itinerary for this trek could be as under:

Day-1 : Auli - Gorson - Chitrakantha 16 kms
Day-2 : Chitrakantha - Gailgarh - Kuari Pass - Gailgarh 13 kms
[It is better to start the trek early in the morning so that you are at Kuari Pass by around 9.30 a.m.]
Day-3 : Gailgarh - Tapoban 16 kms.[All climb down]
Tapoban - Joshimath 15 kms by Jeep/taxi

This can be stretched to 4 days by taking overnight halt at Garson.

Garson, Chitakantha and Gailgarh have camping sites and in Gailgarh there are couple of shepherds' huts where you may get tea/milk.

I see. I can't be sure but have trouble believing the route hasn't been covered before on this board. Try searching for Tapovan (not Tabovan as the thread was originally entitled), which seems to be the more common spelling; the thread title has been adjusted accordingly. As well as for the other keywords, of course.

For starters and the site's search functions aside, if you scroll to the bottom of this page, you'll find a listing of "similar threads." Opening any of those will again feature a list of similar threads at bottom, and so on and so forth. It's an easy way to navigate the site.

Thanx sadanand,
but trouble is I do not have an extra day for making arrangements for the trek. If trip goes as planned, I will reach JM by 3-4 PM and would like make these arrangements(including the permit) in the evening. This way I can start the trek early next morning.

Will see the possibility of this once I reach JM/Auli.

Advice for Kuari Pass-Tapovan Trek

Dear All

I am planning to undertake a trek to Kuari pass/Tapoban in the 1st week of June. Pls advice me on the following :-

a) Is it possible for my daughter, who is 7 yrs old, to do this trek?

b) Do I need to carry tents and ration? Is it a necessity?

c) I find there are lot of trekking agencies in Joshimath, Have any member taken help from them?

Me and my wife have both done some treks in the past.I have done Har-ki-dun trek, Pindari Glacier, Sandakphu, Valley of flowers and my wife accompanied me to Kedarnath and Tunganath-Deoriatal Treks.

Hope to receive your valuable suggestions.

Regards

soura

Depends upon your daughters liking but I do not see any problem if she is fit and enjoy walking.
You will have to carry camping equipment.
Take the help of GMVN manager for choosing the agency. If possible take a horse along so that your daughter can ride it if need be.

I hope your agency has told you what they are providing and what you are supposed to bring. Also what you have to carry while on trek and what food is going to be served. if all this is known have a good time. If i am not mistaken you are finishing the trek at Tapovan.
