Nice place to go in summer.very clean.location of gmvn is outstanding.

Food, sight-seeing and shopping: The food is very good do not try the local garhwali dishes.You can take a walk shopping chances whatsoever.

Activities & things to do: You have the chair car for a wndrful exprnce.there is a lake above.i do think that auli is meant for the winter season.

Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc: From Joshimath it is 18 kms.buses from hrishikesh ply bewn the 2 places. a car from hrishikesh will be a better idea because the distance is around 200 kms.beware of the road jams during the yatra time.

"Auli.... beautiful location after Kashmir in India"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Mar 25, 2012
Auli is amazing location, we have pass thorugh Joshimath to reach to Auli... It is located at India China Border.ust stated, Auli is based on Top of the mountains & known for seeking location.

we have viisted in month Of Oct 2009, so Summer was over & winter was just started, so missed snow seeking but it was very relax, journey as we have not face any crowed at all.

Food, sight-seeing and shopping: As Auli is located at mountain top, It is only wasy to reach hotel is rope way... but you can use road transport also in summer days (as there is no snow & road are clear to drive).

For Food we have to depend on hotel & you are far away from location. The amazing part is Maggi, there is small tea stall available nearby clifftop hotel at the corner of the mountian... to have tea / coffee & enjoy the view of mountain... (amazing exp.. unable to express in words) I though it is painting infront my eyes, as the view was so amazing from cliff top. We had Maggin which was cooked by local tea stall & alu ke parathe... (yummmyyyy). do check this out.

You can try this if u do not want to have hotel food.

There is nothing to sop, just enjoy the views. As the village is very small.

Activities & things to do: You can go for site seeing, sun set views, top mountain views, seeking in winter season, mana village, ganpati & valmiki caves...

Valmiki caves it is again amazing ... it is having shop of book... (really need to c that)
Badrinath temple: Beautiful Temple of Shiv...
Sarawathi river... it is really making lot of noise & foce you to believe in old story of god & goddess.

While reaching to Joshimath, you will find lot of villages located at prayag (i.e. junction of 2-3 river)

Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc: To reach Auli, you have to reach Haridwar, From ther u can either hire share or can hv pvt taxi to reach Joshimath... Form Joshimath by car or rope way.

Be careful As the destination is in top of mountain, local transport is very expensive.. if possible do carry enough money.

Exotic view of the grand Himalayas

Food, sight-seeing and shopping: In house food at the hotel is the best option.
Forget the shopping....treat your eyes with the nature around...must take up the trek routes up the mountains...Gorson peak...not to be missed

Activities & things to do: Trekking

Travel tips, How to reach, travel warnings etc: Any ways you reach, the road is a good option to enjoy the sight. Prefer the cooler months to visit....Feb is the best option to enjoy the natural beauty and flowers....Never forget the sun block and trekking shoes
