Auli Skiing Himalayas
1Information : 1
he Indian Himalayas provide an excellent skiing experience owing to their great height which makes for long descents. The vast open spaces, snow clad mountains and the height of skiing slopes in India are enough to pump up the adrenaline in any ski enthusiast. India's ski resorts are largely confined to the western half of the Himalayas- in Uttarakhand - high enough to get a good cover of snow during the winter months, yet low enough to be easily accessible. For the avid skier, cross-country runs of 10-20 km are now available, with the added advantage of fresh powder snow, away from criss-crossing streams of skiers that overtake the slopes of the European Alps. Because of their height and spread, Garhwal, like other sectors of the Himalayas, offers the thrills of exploratory long distance skiing.

The belief of people is when Laxman, younger brother of Lord Rama got injured fighting the Rakshas in Lanka (Sri Lanka). A medic ordered that only the herb name ‘Sanjivani’ found on Sanjivani mountain in Himalayas can save Laxman. Lord Rama ordered Hanuman the task. Hanuman flew from Lanka and during his way to Sanjivani mountain he took some rest in Auli before continuing his journey.
