From Khulara the trail continues to climb initially and becomes gradual as it proceeds towards Kuari meadows/Kuari pass. The trail today will entice you with snow , walking on thick sheets of fresh snow with the crisp mountain air and brilliant views will be a blissful delight. You might get lucky and pug marks your steps and make way on the freshly laid snow. The white sheets of snow will surely set the mood in happy spirits.

The views are going to be great throughout so we keep your cameras handy. We will reach Kuari Pass in about 5 hours.
