Auli tourism should make it onto the top of your ‘things to do in 2019’ list as it is one of the best winter destinations in India and well! Don’t forget that it is the Skiing capital of the country too.

Auli is a hill station and is more popular due to the fact that you can hop on that Ski-board and take a swing at the mountain slopes while Skiing in Auli, which is altogether a different kind of experience.

While Auli is famous for its Ski-resort, it does offer other activities too such as you can enjoy trekking in Auli or take a road trip to Auli, watch one of the most beautiful sunsets or sunrise and whatnot.

The Best time to visit Auli is from the month of November to March, which allows you to have full experience of Skiing and other activities without worrying about weather in Auli.
