The snowy mountains, the mist, the fresh mountain air is calling and off we go! We are going to Auli, Chopta, Gurso Bugyal (trek) and Tungnath (trek) in this trip, and we shall try visit the most beautiful locations in all these places. We are going to see the highest man made lake in the world, and we will be going up the second highest cable car in India and Asia.
We are going to see  see arguably one of India’s prettiest places, visually. And we are going to see it in winter. When it is at its purest, when the Himalayan mountains have powder white snow, when the trees – the leaves and branches oaks and conifers have a whitish silvery tinge, the meadows are carpeted green and white – making Auli look like a magical fairyland.
This trip is not about dancing in bars and clubs. Of course we will party, for New Years has to be celebrated with much enthusiasm, but we will probably be doing it in big rooms in our cottages, or around bonfires on cold nights and a thousand stars smiling upon us from the sky.
Cost:
Rs 30,000  per person (not counting flights; if booked before Nov 20)
Rs 32,000 per person (if booked after Nov 20)

  • <div dir="ltr"> <div dir="auto">Glad you are interested in joining us for the Christmas trip.&nbsp;</div> <div dir="auto">December 21 - 28, 2019 , we are going to beautiful Auli, Chopta and Tungnath !&nbsp;</div> <div dir="auto"></b>Please Note: This trip is only for people between the 20 - 40 yrs of age.</div></b> <div dir="auto">This trip is going to be very different from the usual trips. We are going to see some places that are arguably one of India's prettiest, visually.</b></div> <div dir="auto">We are going to Auli, Chopts Tungnath (trek) and Gurson Bugyal day trek in this trip. We shall be seeing the highest man made lake in the world and we will be going up India's second longest gondola. We will be doing some beginner skiing, we will be playing madly in the snow, we will be sitting around bonfires at night and seeing a thousand stars in the night sky. We will be sauntering in pretty valleys and we will visit India's best skiing destination as well.</b></div> <div dir="auto">And we are going to see it in winter. When it is at is purest, when the Himalayan mountains have powder white snow, when the trees - the leaves and branches of the Oak and Coniferous trees have a whitish silvery tinge, the meadows are carpeted green and white - making Auli look like a magical fairyland.&nbsp;</div> <div dir="auto"></b>This trip is not about dancing in bars and clubs. Of course we will party, for New Years has to be celebrated with much enthusiasm, but we will probably be doing it in big rooms in our cottages, or around bonfires on cold nights and a thousand stars smiling upon us from the sky.&nbsp;</div> <div dir="auto">This trip is about letting go of all of 2019, and spending the last week of this year with yourself. Wake up to hot tea, take in the morning sun, and later road trip with your new friends. This trip is about playing in the snow, about sitting on mountains and taking in the incredibly gorgeous panoramas, sitting by bristling icy rivers, making new friends, and spending time with yourself.</div> <div dir="auto"></b>Note: During winters, most roads are completely open because a lot of foreign tourists come in for skiing in Auli, but in case some roads get closed abruptly because of snowfall, we shall improvise and change the day's plan according to the situation then. 99 percent that is never an issue. Also note, historically Auli has always had snow and snowfall in the last week of December. But just in case there is no snow, in no way should the tripper blame the brand or the trip leader for the weather or the lack of snow.&nbsp;</div></b> <div dir="auto">The temperatures will be in single digits and if its a very cold winter, maybe a couple of days temperatures will be in minus degrees in the night, but we will have warm rooms, cozy blankets, bonfires, and the nice big bunch of trippers all huddling close and talking till the wee hours of the night.</div> <div dir="auto">I think this trip is basically for travelers who love the mountains, who love snow, who love the peace and tranquility of nature, who are not looking for a wild end to 2019 but a beautiful as well as relaxed one.</b></div> <div dir="auto">As for me, the sky is going to be so incredibly clear that I can&rsquo;t wait to stare at the stars!&nbsp;</div> <div dir="auto">Take a look at the attached PDF and let me know if you like the itinerary and would like to join us.</b></div> <div dir="auto"><strong>Dates:&nbsp;</strong></div> <div dir="auto">Fly in : To Dehradun airport on Dec 21.
