    Follow in the footsteps of Lord Curzon, who in 1905, when Viceroy of India first blazed this trail. He was followed later by Shipton and Tilman on their way to Nanda Devi. Today, you may revel in the serenity and breath-taking beauty of these mountains while enjoying the company of your friendly trekking crew, local shepherds and only the occasional trekker. You will trek over mountain passes and through dense forests of oak, pine, rhododendron, fir and deodar, crossing many streams and traversing beautiful grassy ‘bugyals’, the wide open alpine meadows so typical of this region, which serve as high altitude summer grazing grounds.
