Auli, Uttarakhand

Been there recently?

Auli, a popular hiking and skiing destination, is a hill station in the Chamoli district of the Garhwal Himalayas of Uttarakhand. A small but picturesque town to behold, it is a white winter wonderland with a panoramic view of the Himalayan peaks and is surrounded by coniferous and oak forests. It can be accessed by a 3.5-kilometres-long cable car ride from Joshimath. One can see the Nanda Devi peak in its entirety while travelling. The 3 kilometres of high-rise slopes in Auli with a 500 m drop are ideal for skiing. The slopes balance the skier’s velocity while the swift winds at this altitude make Auli one of the best skiing spots in the world.

Nanda Devi National Park
The Nanda Devi Biosphere Reserve, also referred to as the Nanda Devi National Park, is a breathtaking wilderness area in the upper Himalayas. The Zanskar Mountains and the Great Himalaya share a special transition zone that is encompassed by the Nanda Devi Biosphere Reserve and the Valley of Flowers, two sites on the prestigious UNESCO World Heritage List. The reserve, which is over 6,407 square kilometres in size, is split into an interior “core” zone and an exterior “buffer” zone. The reserve is home to large populations of globally endangered species such as the snow leopard, the Himalayan musk deer, and a wide variety of plants. Permission and permits are required to enter the reserve.
Numerous Hindu pilgrims travel each year to the holy town of Joshimath, also known as Jyotirmath. Joshimath is one of the four maths that the Adi Guru Shankaracharya founded in the eighth century, according to Hindu mythology. Kalpavriksha, a tree estimated to be around 1,200 years old, is the main draw. There are numerous significant temples and holy places in this area. Joshimath is a popular destination for trekkers because it serves as their base camp before ascending to higher elevations.
Trishul Peak
Trishul is the collective name for the three Himalayan peaks in western Kumaun. With a height of 7120 metres, Trishul is one of the most well-known and strenuously difficult climbs for an avid trekker or trekking enthusiast among all the major peaks of the Himalayan range. The ring of peaks surrounding Nanda Devi Sanctuary is rounded off to the southwest by the Trishul group. When viewed from a distance, Trishul and the other mountain peaks in this range have stunning natural beauty that draws visitors from all over the world. The Roopkund Trek or the village of Kausani provide the best vantage points for viewing the peak. An absolute thrill for any nature lover is to witness this magnificent mountain at either sunrise or sunset.
