Camping is something that was long forgotten after school. Recently, I happened to camp at Auli and it was the best thing ever. I had an amazing vacation. The camp was well organized and well managed. I really loved my vacation to the core. The best time to do camping here is in summer. It is a good vacation spot to take your children to.

i had always heard of places like manali and ladakh but this place was no lesser than heaven, we had camped in a valley beside a river and the view was so beautiful i cannot express in few words. Snow covered mountains all around and the cool flowing river covered with rich vegetation . it is one of the best place in India.

Uttrrakhand is the perfect destination for trekkers and skiers like me, And Auli is a stunning hill-station and quite challenging as well.Plus its a chilly and moderate difficulty level trek.

Camping is awesome. Camping is fun! At Uttarakhand, Auli camping is pretty famous and lots of fun. I recently visited this place along with a couple of other places and took this camping deal. It was an amazing steal. The food could have been far better for the rates charged. Otherwise, a nice camp that was very much enjoyable and fun.

I got lucky enough to get tickets to go here for a low rate and this place was really beautiful and I am guessing it is still one of those few places in India that people still do not know much about. Liked the ambience a lot and we wish we could have been here for longer. Good place to go for a college hangout.
