Auli

 
  Picture these endless fields of pristine white snow faraway from any semblance of civilization, dazzling sunsets, bitterly cold air, deodars that threaten to pierce the sky and magnificent Himalayan peaks standing guard over a little tiny cottage replete with a fragrance of fresh pine where you and your sweet hard can whisper sweet nothings and nestle to a hot cuppa. Enticed enough? Well welcome to Auli Nestled high in Garhwal Himalayas, nature has bestowed Auli with everything that befits a perfect honey moon destination. And much more……

Honeymooners can sense the exotic experience that awaits them right from the moment they cross hardware and travel on the Badrinath road. For a stretch of 30-odd km beyond Rishikesh, you can see

Rafting enthusiasts battling the rapids on the Ganga. Next you pass through bustling town of Srinagar ahead of which lies rudraprayag, the confluence of alaknanda and Mandakini. So in a sense the union depicts two different entities joining together become one, and sets the perfect milieu for you. Now the road continuously plays hide and seek with the meandering alaknanda through many quaint hamlets to bring you to josh math.

Heights of Adventure
The experience of travelling to the alpine meadows of Auli from josh math is quite romantic. You have the choice of driving on the steep snow covered road or take the Gondola lift. Opt for the Gondola and cuddle up inside to absorb the splendid Himalayan Vista That envelops you. The 15 minute ride costs Rs 400. In fact this is the highest and longest cable car in Asia covering a distance of 4km at a height of more than 10,000 ft driving up is equally thrilling, as the steep narrow road covered with ice sets the perfect mood for adventure.

There are two, equally appealing choices of accommodation at Auli. If you are not already left heady by the Gandola, The cute little tin and wooden dome shaped huts of Garhwal mandal vikas nigam will leave you stumped! The cottages are equipped with bukharis for warmth. You can choose to spend time in the snug quarters or wrap syourself in a quilt and sit out in the verandah and watch the sun setting amidst the towering Himalayan peaks. He more luxurious Cliff Top situated higher up, a little below tower number 8 of the club has all the facilities which you can possibly think of, in alpine settings.

Colors of the sun
Sunrise at auli is a magnificent affair. And the only way to do it justice is to take a quick, invigorating walk up to the quaint temple overlooking the Botanical Research institute. The early morning wind has a high chill factor, calling for layers of clothing and warm hugs. The sun enigmatically rises behind the Nanda Devi east. What unfolds over the next half an hour or so is a riot of colors of every imaginable hue over the peaks such as Nanda Devi, Choukhamba and punch chuli. You can spend few days learning the nuancesof the sport together on the ski slopes which turn into lushgreen meadows in summer. Skiing equipments and guides are available both at Gmvn and cliff top. After learning the basics you can enjoy picking up the sport together.

All Fall down
Do keep the camera ready to capture those falls that you and your spouse will inevitably take in the snow. Have fun by choosing your own little corner to build a snowman and and find out who among is better at this childhood activity. Have the hot coffee and noodles dished out by enterprising locals at makeshift stalls…….. and when you’ve gone back to the hotel, make sure to dry yourself. You wouldn’t want to fall ill on honeymoon, would you?
