Trekking season in Indian Himalayas : Fix Departure Trekking trips for kuaripass & Nanda devi Trekking
Spread over a width of an average 250 kms the weather varies dramatically over different regions. The weather in the subcontinent is almost entirely dependent on the ‘monsoons’, winds blowing from the southwest of India and the adjacent areas bringing heavy rainfall in the continent, typically in the months of June to September.
Summer, mid March to end June, known as the pre-monsoon season is the one of the best time to trek and climb as there are long days of nice, pleasant weather. The snow lines are quite low early on in this season as the winter snow just starts to melt.
Monsoon, early July to Mid September, is when the entire country (except the Trans Himalayas – Lahaul Spiti in Himachal and Ladakh) is drenched with rain water and covered with thick envelope of clouds. Perfect time to be in the TransHimalayan land as it wakes up after a long cold winter.
Autumn, the post- monsoon season starts by late September and carries on till end November. Since everything is washed out in the monsoons and it is relatively cooler this period offers clear views of the mountain ranges.
Winter is quite severe all across the Himalayas, especially in the higher reaches. It generally arrives by early December and continues till mid March. Good time to be in the Lesser Himalayas to get the starkling clear distant views
Kuaripass North Face Trek known as "The Shipton Tilman Route" as well Nandadevi Trekking
1905, Lord Curzon reached Kuari Pass (3640m). Kuaripass means "door way".He
made the trek, and since then it is also known as the Curzon trail. The main
attraction of it is the imposing view of the eastern peaks of Garhwal
Himalayas,the twin peaks of Nanda Devi, Kamet, Dronagiri, Trishul,
Bertholi,Hathi Ghodi Parvat, Mana, and Neelkanth peaks. The trek passes
through Pristine Rhododendron, oak and deodar forest. Rarely Himalayan flora
and fauna are found as plenty as on this trail.
The Kuari (virgin) Pass treks is a highly varied & scenic trek which passes through three lesser Passes & five major rivers - the Pindar, Kaliganga, Nandakini , Birehiganga & Dhauliganga.The pass or "KHAL" is approached from the ancient trek (Goat Track) route to Joshimath, Badrinath along the pilgrims route. This trek can be undertaken from Auli or from Debal or Ghat near Nandaprayag.
kuaripass north face trek with pangarchulla peak trekking
Pangarchulla becomes a beautiful climbing objective in the spring after
having accumulated all the winter snow. An easy low peak which gives a good
feel of a climb-plodding the crisp morning snow with amazing views of high
mountains. This trip offers enough challenge and loads of photo opportunity.
Just perfect for anyone!!
Day 1 : Delhi to Rishikesh (330m) 5-6 hrs
Board the morning Shatabdi Express departing New Delhi at 7am. Reach Hardwar at 11:30 am.

Evening explore the township and attend the aarti (evening prayers) by the banks of the river Ganga. Overnight hotel.
Day 2 : Drive Rishikesh to Joshimath (1560m) 8-9 hrs
The drive takes one into the rugged country of the Garhwal along the Alaknanda river. Going past a few holy confluences and the road keeps ascending to the small township of Joshimath, which is the base for the Indian Army and the Indian Tibet Border police for this area.

Take the cable car up to the ski slopes of Auli (2750m). From Auli one gets to see a distinct profile of Nanda Devi at the head of the sanctuary.

Overnight Camp.
