Lord Curzon made the trek to Kuari Pass, and since then it has come to be known as Curzon's Trail. It is at an elevation of 4265m in the heart of Chamoli District of Uttaranchal in the northeastern part of Garhwal and is very popular among European and American trekkers. From Gorson, one can have a breathtaking view of the eastern part of Garhwal Himalayas. The prominent peaks visible from Kuari Pass are the twin peaks of the Nanda Devi, Kamet, Dronagiri, the Hati-Ghodi Parvat, Dunagiri, Bethartoli and the Devasthan.

Tapovan : This is the meditation ground of the Gods at the base of divine mountain "Shivling". Quite some time can be spent at Tapovan soaking in the spiritual atmosphere and undertaking treks to the bases of various majestic peaks. The sunrise and sunset on Shivling and Bhagirathi group of peaks is an experience in itself. Auli : Joshimath which is 47km from Badrinath was founded by the Adiguru Sankaracharya and the snow-covered mountainous vicinity of this town is well known for its winter sports activity, especially skiing.
