Reaching Auli was a mountainous task (literally) . From uttarkashi we had to travel in 6 different vehicles to reach auli. Uttarkashi > lamgaon > pipaldali > srinagar > karnaprayag > chamoli > joshimath . After a tiring journey we opted to give it a break at joshimath and stay there overnight . Next morning we head to Auli via ropeway. Auli has the best ski slopes in entire Asia . The Ropeway itself is one of a kind , indias highest and second longest after Gulmarg . The “gondola” as locals say offers a perfect view of garwhal himalayan ranges. We weren’t done yet as we started hiking to gorson bugyal top . What awaits there wasn’t just snow , the trek itself was mesmerising through dense forests covered in a thick blanket of snow . The 360 degree from the top will blow your mind. I could see mount trishul, hathi parbat, ghoda parbat, dunagiri,panchchula . Among them the Nanda devi stands out .nanda devi is indias second highest peak or highest which is entirely located in india . In a cloudless sky somehow nanda devi manages to have a crown of clouds. It was magical .the goddess of bliss the nanda devi stole my soul.
