At an altitude of 3750 mts, Khauli Pass is one of those forgotten treks that were charming once but with winds of "development", machneries were in and the trek was forgotten. Surprisingly though, the main stretch of the trek is untouched and remains to be a prestine trail with green shrubs and grass, the buttercups and orchids from dark purple to pale pink and the rhododendrons on the slopes, the stately pines and oak trees. Beauty of this trek lies in contradictions. Green trail along side the Hurla nala on one side, view of the snow laden peaks like Hanuman tibba, Friendship peak, Indersen from the pass and snow covered ( for at least six months a year ) meadows on the other side of the pass.
