DAY 1 – RISHIKESH – JOSHIMATH / AULI (2450M) (DRIVE / 8 – 9 HRS)

We assemble at Haridwar railway station at 7 a.m and from there board a vehicle which will drop us at Auli. This drive is long yet engaging. We will for most part of the journey drive along the Ganga & Alaknanda Rivers. Enroute , we will be crossing the holy towns of Devprayag & Rudraprayag. On reaching, rest for the night in tents.

DAY 2 -JOSHIMATH / AULI (2450M) – KHULARA (3225M) (TREK / 6 HRS)

After an early breakfast we drive a short distance (5 kms) to reach the starting point of the trek. From here we start hiking through the Auli meadows (popular for skiing) and witness up-close views of the famous Nanda Devi Peak and other big Himalayan giants. After walking past the Auli meadows, we will trek through an enchanting mixed forest abundant in bird life. Once out of the jungle we will walk on the beautiful meadows of Gurson, every moment in this place is going to delightful. Beauty of these meadows is something to be experienced. From Gurson we will descend for a short time and will again enter a beautiful forest section of oaks, deodars, maple and chestnut trees. Trekking further, we will cross Tali, a campsite used by avid trekkers. In about a couple of hours, we will reach the magnificent campsite at Khulara where we camp for the night.

DAY 3 – KHULARA (2550M) – KUARI PASS (3650M) – KHULARA (2550M) (TREK / 6 – 7 HRS)

Today we go through a series of ascents on meadows which keep on getting better as we move up. Walking on golden, green and other hues of grass is just bliss. The mountain air is crisp and the views brilliant! We are sure to catch a shepherd with the sheep and the dog. Don’t miss a chance to spend some time with them. The views are going to be great throughout so we keep our cameras handy. We will reach Kuari pass in about 3 hours or so. Our guide might give you the option of not going to the actual pass (which is nearby) and instead climb another vantage point with better views so take a call depending upon what you feel like doing. After spending sometime at the vantage ridge/Kuari pass we will start walking back to Khulara. On reaching Khulara, we will enjoy an overnight stay in tents
