Known as the Ski Destination of India, Auli is located in Garhwal region of Uttarakhand at the height of 2500 to 3050 meters above the sea level. The place was recognized as a tourist spot after Uttar Pradesh was split into another state, Uttarakhand - Devbhumi or the Land of Gods. The place is awe-inspiring with its spectacular view of the coniferous and oak trees covered in snow. The slopes of the gigantic Himalayan in this region are perfect for skiing. The Garhwal Mandal Vikas Nigam Limited and Uttarakhand Tourism Department organizes winter sports competition in Auli to promote skiing in India.
