  • Trip introduction

    Spend six blissful days in the Garhwal Himalayas, enjoying the snowy slopes of Auli on skis, and ending with a thrilling rafting session on the Alaknanda. You’ll stay in a cosy ski lodge in Auli, where every morning, you'll bundle up and hit the slopes to learn the basics of skiing. In the evenings, you can read, go for short hikes, admire the views, or discuss the more technical aspects of skiing with your instructors.

    Your lodge in Auli is equipped with deluxe rooms, attached washrooms, running hot water, comfortable queen-sized beds, and a balcony with a spectacular view. On the last night, you’ll move to a Jayalgarh campsite beside the river. You’ll stay in a Swiss tent with a permanent roof, attached washrooms, large soft queen-sized beds, running hot water, and a private sitout with a riverside view.

    Destination

    Auli lies in the Chamoli district of Uttarakhand, and is considered one of the best destinations for skiing. Avid skiiers from around the world visit during the winter to take advantage of the fine powder snow that falls here, and to ski in the presence of the mighty Himalayas. Auli is a large meadow, or bugyal, which means that it is blanketed with thick snow during the snow months. From Auli, you can see peaks like Nanda Devi, Mana Parvat, and more.
