Its a long and a detailed write-up. Hope it helps!
Snow, Ice, minus temperatures are some things people from the west regions of India crave for, during their winter breaks. For us, the minimum temperature the mercury hits during winters is 13-15 deg Celsius. Well thats not enough! We want more!.. and certainly the Himalayas are a complete package when it comes to having a chill winter experience.
So the search for an ideal winter Himalayan destination began with shortlisting the most common ones like Kashmir, Shimla, Manali, Nainital, Mussourie etc. These are well-known tourist destinations and we were pretty sure to expect a lot of crowd during November-December-January. Not appreciating the idea of crowded place and finally after hours of research, we came across Auli, a hill station in Uttarakhand. Awestruck by the images, a lesser known and less explored Auli became our next winter destination.
