Do you know that the mighty Garhwal Himalayas are hiding an international ski resort that is too surreal to believe? Rising above the holy town of Joshimath, Auli is a gem of a place for all those who love snow and winter sports! Located at a distance of approx 500 km, a trip from Delhi to Auli can easily be covered over a weekend! While you might get to see snow laid fields in many other places, what makes Auli different is that it is a very prominent Ski Destination in India! Owing to this, the best time to visit Auli is between December to March. The distance between Joshimath to Auli is 14kms and one can reach there by road. However, what’s more worthy is the gondola cable car ride that takes you above the beautiful alpine forests to a thick, snow-clad meadow of Auli Resort!
It is here that you can enjoy a day full of fun activities including skiing, snow sliding, chairlift ride and more! Once you are done with the activities you can savour a hot cuppa at the lakeside with a 360-degree view of the Himalayas! The very popular Nanda Devi Peak is very much visible from the resort and makes for a breathtaking landscape!
Since it is one of the off-beat destinations in India, a trip to Auli and Joshimath is your chance to explore the Garhwali culture, delve into the flavours of local food, visit the iconic temples and soak in the simple and raw beauty of Uttarakhand.
