Let’s go to AULI together.
Auli is a popular hill station in Uttarakhand, often called the “skiing destination of India,” located in the Chamoli district and known for its snow-clad terrain, orchards, majestic Himalayan peaks, and breathtaking natural beauty. Holiday brings you several Auli travel packages that are customizable and affordable, making them perfect for travelling with friends and family.
One of the main reasons why Auli attracts large crowds is its snow-covered slopes perfect for skiing; the Gorson Reserve Forest is one of the most popular locations where you can catch glimpses of the magnificent peaks Mana Parwat, Hathi Parbat, Nar Parbat, etc. Moreover, Trishul I, one of the three Trishul peaks, is also well known for skiing, trekking, and mountain climbing.
Auli has beautiful meadows and valleys, some with snow and others with flowers, such as the Valley of Flowers near Joshimath and Gurso Bugyal, which has coniferous trees and mesmerising views of peaks.Moreover, several viewpoints scattered around the region provide excellent views of the surrounding mountains, like the Hanuman Temple, believed to have been a rest stop for Lord Hanuman, and the Auli Ropeway or Gondola
Part of the Auli tour packages includes a visit to the sacred sites of Rudraprayag and Nandaprayag, two rivers that are part of the Panch Prayag. With so much open space comes the opportunity for outdoor activities like trekking to Dunagiri, Joshimath and Nanda Devi, as well as camping, where you get to watch the sunrise/sunset, enjoy meals around a bonfire, play games and take in nature.
Auli is starting to get popular among the skiers. Long, tiring travel and unpredictable weather can be mood killers. You cannot be sure until you know what to expect. Few families have the opportunity to enjoy snowfall and skiing together. If luck is not on your side, a snowstorm can lock you in your room for days. For some, the hard, solid snow detracts from the enjoyment of skiing. Even though there is a snowblower, it cannot provide the sensation of fresh snow. There is a long ski lift connecting the lower slopes to the top. The gondola is not an aid to skiing and simply transports visitors to the accommodation centre from the local village, and the one serious ski lift, as well as being short, only operates when there are four people to fill the available seats. This does lead to long delays between runs. The ski village suffers from a shortage of electricity, and being restricted to one hour of power per day is not unusual in winter.

Some Awesome Places
Tungnath, the temple of Lord Shiva, comes under the “panch Kedar” (five Kedars of the Lord), the others being Kedarnath, Madhyameshwar, Rudranath, and Kalpeshwar, all on the higher reaches of Garhwal, the Himalayas in India. There are so many food stalls and homestays along the way that one feels completely at ease, and there are a few campsites to enjoy midway and at the end of your upward trek at Tungnath. One can experience the diverse Himalayan fauna and flora from the top, as the mountain is in the midst of evergreen forests in the Kedar wildlife sanctuary. If you would like to go further up the trail, then you get to Chandrashila, which is 1.5 km from Tungnath, and even further, you get to Deori Tal.
Chopta is a hill station, not to be confused with an identically named hamlet near Pokhri in the same Garhwal region, not so far from the hill station. Chopta is also called the “mini Switzerland of India.” It is so beautiful and mesmerising that even movie makers substitute Chopta and show it in their movies as Switzerland.
WHAT IS SPECIAL ABOUT CHOPTA – TUNGNATH TREK OVER OTHER TREKS?
The Chopta-Tungnath trek is one of the best; it is a short trek with additional information in the following: You get to see nature in all its glory as the entire trek is in the evergreen Kedar wildlife sanctuary. You get to see rhododendron trees throughout if you are trekking in the summer months, and snow in the winters with maple leaves falling all over the place, just like what you would experience in Switzerland. This is one of the rare treks that is more rewarding to the Lord Shiva believers as it gives them both the joys of the trek and also a temple visit. Campsites, forest stays, all-food stalls, and even skiing in the winter make Chopta the most ideal tourist destination in the Hills. It offers way too many options in a very small, quaint location. We at Himalayan Crew have years of experience making our clients’ trips ever so filling and joyful.
