Imagine you’re sitting in your Office and you’re thinking what if I was on a mountain away from the world where it is snowing and I’m just playing in the snow and staring at the beauty of the nature and living my life with my friends. Feels like a paradise right? Thinking of the same we decided why to simply dream and imagine why not let’s go and live that dream. With that thought let me take you through our adventurous journey :)
Ever since I visited Uttarakhand on a Char Dham Yatra way back in 2013, I wanted to visit Auli in winters as the locals say it is a snowy paradise away from hustle bustle of city life. And it took 6 years for that dream to come true.
It was just a phone call to one of my friends in Bareily that paved way for this plan. Initially it was just two of us in the plan but eventually it became 7 of us one being added on the day of trip.
3 of us were to go to Delhi from Hyderabad and 3 would be joining us in Delhi and 1 would be meeting us directly in Rishikesh. Before going ahead, let me give a brief idea about the ways & means to reach Auli.
There are 2 routes to reach Auli either via Haridwar/Rishikesh which is Char Dham Yatra Route or via Nainital where it is said connectivity is not that good (though I’m not sure).
Various buses ply on Haridwar-Joshimath route or you can also hire a taxi as we did. We can get buses from ISBT, Kashmere Gate as well.
Nearest Railway Station is Dehradun/Kathgodam/Rishikesh/Haridwar.
Nearest Airport is Jolly Grant Airport,Dehradun.
