Day 1

Auli also known as Switzerland of India,It is situated in the state of Uttrakhand.
Day 1 - We started from Delhi,Our destination was decided but the enroute was pretty much random.
The distance we have to travel was aprox 500 km which we planned to complete it in 2 days.
So we decided to take a halt at Lansdowne,A place where u can get similar camp feeling like Rishikesh but at a lower price.

Auli is the place situated at very small area and very less crowded.So one day would be enough for you to chill there at chilling temperature and to explore around.As there is no specific tourist place,entire area is covered is snow,So we started our exploration up the hill where the snow was getting thikker with every step,It was almost 2ft thick.
