Nanda Devi Peak

As one of the highest hill stations in India, Auli is located in the shadow of many other tall and towering peaks that give it the characteristic look of a snowy hill station. One such peak amongst them is the Nanda Devi. The name of the peak itself stands for bless giving Goddess and it is this very meaning that you will see in its greatest measure as you catch a sight of its towering peaks from Auli. The Nanda Devi National Park that surrounds the peak is also a place where you can explore and discover a stirring range of flora and fauna and biodiversity. 

This is characterized by mostly mountainous fowl, tall trees of oak, deodar, pine, conifer, rhododendron and many others. It is this very variety and diversity which has led to it becoming a part of the World UNESCO Heritage sight. The seconds highest mountain in India, Nanda Devi towers to an elevation of 7,817m and the very view of it is humbling.
