It is impossible to not fall in love with the Auli Kuari trail! Snuggled in the Garhwal region of northern India, Auli slope offers an unbelievably glorious view of the Himalayan Giants viz. Nanda Devi, Kamet, Mana Parvat and Dronagiri! In summers, the slope turns into the grassy meadow of your dreams; soft, lush and never ending! Tents are easy to pitch on the vast meadows and the soft grass makes up for a most comfortable natural bed! As for the winters, a dry rugged terrain leads to lush green forest of Rhododendrons and Oak. They subtly lead the way to snow clad grounds building just the right amount of anticipation en route! Horses graze leisurely on the bugyals, submissive to a gentle pat or caress. Flocks of sheep look like balls of wool spread across the emerald land from afar. Talk to the sherpas on the move, get to know about the local lore and lifestyle. A thirsty mind and open senses create worth-listening to post-trek stories!
As we go on drinking in the beauty around, we arrive at the Talli Lake. As the name suggests, it’s a lake you get drunk on! With water as clear as the sky, the Birch trees make capture-worth reflections on the lake’s surface. A small respite at the lake will surely leave you feeling invigorated!
Trek nights can get cold and the journey may seem monotonous in its beauty at times. Campfire sessions come to the rescue then as they take away the chill of the night and entertain us as they bring the surrounding alive! Sip on a hot chai as the sky drizzles lightly and we will make sure that you have a window to nature’s best views in the country! The villages around Joshimath sell mouth-watering ghee from the healthiest meadow-fed stock. Don’t forget to take some for the folks back at home!
