You can experience the best skiing fun here even as an amateur. there are many adventure companies who give away skiing packages if booked early. So, the things you can do here are Skiing, trekking, gondola rides, and camping. Buses do ply from Rishikesh and Joshimath to Auli. Stay Options:- Tattva Resort, Auli Nature camp, Auli Adventure camp, Mountain Rover hotel and many more .... 2. The second I would suggest is Chaukori:- Thsi under rated destination of Uttarakhand is a land of mighty Himalayas and famous for its tea gardens. Nestled in the lap of Himalayas, this place is 180 kms from Kathgodam railway station. Nanda Devi, Panchachuli, Nanda Kot, Trishul, and Chaukhamba are distinctly visible from this tiny hamlet.

The third I would suggest you to visit is Khisru :- This one of the must visit prime destination in Uttrakhand in winters is located in Pauri Garhwal district, and is best for both solo and romantic getaways. Thsi would be a laid back destination, just to sit back and enjoy the majesticity of Himalayas. Stay options:- Government guest houses and bungalows are available. GMVN Khirsu Tourist Bungalow and Sahil Shikhar. 4. The fourth I would suggest is Rudraprayag:- Infamously called as 'land of Shiva, Rudraprayag lies at the confluence of the rivers Alaknanda and Mandakini. It is a pitstop for the Kedarnath & Badrinath piligrims. Also a best place to do water rafting on Ganges. The Rudranath Temple, Chamunda Devi Temple, Koteshwar, and Basukedar are important places to visit in Rudraprayag. Stay options:- There are many government hostels to cheap guesthouses making it easy and affordable to stay in Rudraprayag. 5. The fifth i would suggest is a trek named Kedarkantha trek:- This is a 6 to 7 day trek which opens up into what called as 'The best winter trek' by India Hikes. Kedarkantha makes for a terrific trek in virgin snow, with pretty campsites and astonishingly wide clearings in the forests. The drive to Kedarkantha takes you through Mussoorie, Nowgaon, Purola and Mori before finally bringing you to Naitwar. It is a remote route so exquisite that it is one of the most beautiful drives in the Indian Himalayas. Right from the Kedarkantha base camp, youll see stunning 360 degree views of famous mountain summits and are jaw dropping.
