    Skiing is my favourite sport, and I really like doing it back in Russia. Now that I moved back to India, I was looking for spots to try it. While we were on a trip to Rishikesh, we found this place, and we tried it. It was good though not the best.

    Auli Skiing Tour, Uttarakhand was an excellent tour. It was interesting and exciting. I thought India didn’t have a lot of adventurous sports, but I was clearly wrong. The Auli Skiing was just about perfect and I would really want to try other adventurous sports here.

    Auli skiing is a great thing to do when you are visiting anywhere near Leh, Ladakh, or Rishikesh. You can extend the stay and do it. It is kind of good. I am not sure if the rate is budget friendly for everyone, but it is worth trying totally.

    The skiing was fine. I have no skiing experience, and it was not really easy to do that. Especially with such crowd and being a first timer I felt like I was being pushed into the skiing thing without a moment to even rejoice or think if I am ready to do it at all.

    I reach this place at the time of snowfall and it was my first time when I do skiing and it was very difficult to do but it is possible with the help of the guide and I also do trekking of Gurson Bhugyal. I take many photographs for social media but the best part was the view which was superb.
