  • A divine hill station in the Northern state of Uttarakhand, we recommend booking resorts in Auli soon after you book your tickets to this snow and ski land in India. Gorgeously nestled among snow-clad mountains, Auli is renowned for its snowy peaks of the Garhwal Himalayan Range while being delightfully dotted with apple orchards, oaks and deodars and coniferous forests.
