➩ Description

During the time when the British governed India, the Kuari Pass Trek was investigated by Lord Curzon. At an elevation of 4,264 metres, it is the ideal trek for novice hikers and can be found in the Garhwal region of the Himalayas. If you are a novice hiker and are considering beginning your mountaineering career in the Himalayas, then Kuari Pass is an excellent choice for the first walk of your Himalayan expedition. In addition to this, it is ideal for those who like environment due to its unspoiled surroundings, picturesque landscapes, and views of towering peaks. It doesn’t matter whether you go in the winter or summer; the Kuari Pass Climb is a stunningly beautiful uphill journey in the Uttarakhand Himalayas. This trek is ideal for those who have a strong love for mountaineering and see it as having a significant role to play in their lives. In spite of the fact that the peak is at a relatively low height, we advise having a high level of physical endurance and a proven track record of fitness. To go from Dehradun to Joshimath and back to Dehradun again, you will need to take a cab for a total of 544 kilometres, and then you will need to walk 33 kilometres from Dhak Village to the kuari pass peak 12516 feet and then back to Joshimath. These hikes are not too challenging, but they are doable. We’ve been leading them for the last 30 years, and during that time we’ve met individuals from all over the globe who have varying degrees of fitness, but everyone has been able to complete the Kuari pass hike. Don’t give too much thought to it; instead, focus on the natural world around you, and everything will come easily to you. However, you should always seek the assistance of your trek leader, get up early while on the journey, and practise yoga and pranayam each morning.

➩ Fitness

As you climb to higher altitudes, the air grows thinner and less oxygen is present. The amount of oxygen in our blood is equivalent to the proportion of haemoglobin that is saturated with oxygen. At altitudes above around 2,100 metres (7,000 feet), the amount of oxygen carried by our blood starts to decrease. At the same time, the human body possesses both immediate and long-term adaptations to altitude that help it somewhat compensate for the shortage of oxygen.
